Volunteers help contribute to the development of an educated, inspired and prosperous manufacturing community. Take a look at the individuals who currently make up the SME volunteer programs and find opportunities to become a part of the team.
The board is made up of leaders from varied backgrounds representing years of experience from a wide array of manufacturing disciplines. Acting as the governing body of SME, the board has the power to establish business policy for SME, order and conduct professional meetings and guide its member units.
Comprised of leaders from industry, academia, research and government, the council leads the organization's member engagement activities in chapters, local communities and international Technical Communities.
The chapter leaders oversee membership recruitment and retention endeavors, as well as coordinate the chapter's strategic planning efforts, helping guide the chapter through its short-term and long-term goals.
