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
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.
