SAE Member Quotes
Notable Past SAE Members


Ford, Wright, Kettering, Curtiss — all names that are universally recognized as pioneers of the mobility industry. We're proud to say that they were also among the founders and early supporters of SAE International. In fact, Henry Ford served as SAE's first Vice President in its founding year of 1905. These industry visionaries recognized the need for an organization that represented engineers across the burgeoning mobility industry and leant their time and considerable talents to ensuring that SAE fulfill its mission.

Throughout the years, SAE's membership ranks have read like a veritable "who's who" in the automotive and aerospace industries. But the work of countless others who were less-heralded was equally important to establishing the dynamic global growth and reach that SAE currently enjoys. At SAE International, the whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. In recognition of that fact, every SAE member will receive a SAE 100th Anniversary commemorative pin and member card.

In keeping with SAE's rich history of involvement by the most important people in our industries, an honorary committee of industry leaders is being formed to guide SAE into our 100th year. The committee will be Chaired by Rick Wagoner, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of General Motors Corporation and Bill Ford, Jr., Chairman of Ford Motor Company.
