WARRENDALE, PA — The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE ) plans to hold special celebrations at several of its conferences and expositions in 2005 to celebrate its 100 year anniversary. SAE has been serving the mobility engineering community since 1905.
From a black tie gala and special section functions to PR events and centennial series editions of its magazines, there will be ample opportunities for joining SAE in toasting its first century.
“We’ve reached a milestone in our history as an organization,” said Ray Morris, executive vice president and COO of SAE International. “With activities spanning all areas of the mobility industry-automobiles, aerospace, off highway and motorsports-our members now have access to a level of cutting-edge information unheard of a century ago.”
SAE is a non-profit engineering and scientific organization dedicated to the advancement of mobility technology to better serve humanity. Nearly 85,000 engineers and scientists who are SAE members develop technical information on all forms of self-propelled vehicles, including automobiles, aircraft, aerospace craft, trucks, buses, marine, rail and transit machinery. This information is disseminated through SAE meetings, books, electronic products and databases, technical papers, standards, reports and professional development programs.
To reach its membership in diverse industries, special SAE 100th anniversary programs are being planned at the following events:
SAE 2004 Motorsports Engineering Conference and Exhibition-Nov. 30-Dec. 2, Hyatt Regency Dearborn, Dearborn, MI.
