Why Not Make a Difference?

The newly-implemented Global Sections Partnership Program is off to a great start. Five sections have already committed to making a financial contribution and collaborating with sections who are looking for global partners. Donated funds will be used to help beneficiary sections organize and implement higher quality technical programs and events for their members.

We all are aware that the world is rapidly becoming more global, and SAE's local programs should mirror this trend. Programs such as the Global Sections Partnership Program serve to create lasting bonds of friendship between section members around the world, enhance the ability of all sections to offer quality technical programs and activities that add value for their local members, and provide sponsoring sections with a good feeling that they have made a worthwhile contribution to the industry as a whole. This is truly a win-win situation for all concerned.

If your section is interested in contributing to the program or would like to request funds through the program, or if you want some additional program information, please contact Cindy Lisiak at SAE Headquarters: e-mail:, phone: 724-772-7138, or fax at 724-776-4493.

If your section hasn't already considered it, why not discuss the things you can do to advance the mobility industry and its practitioners worldwide and make a contribution.
