About SAE International

We are the leader in connecting and educating engineers while promoting, developing and advancing aerospace, commercial vehicle and automotive engineering.

SAE International is governed by a Board of Directors headed by the President who also serves as the Chair of the Board. The Board supports the Society's mission of serving a global network of mobility engineers by providing industry standards and life-long learning, networking and career-development opportunities.

The Board is responsible for redefining SAE's strategic direction, providing leadership that links SAE's members to the operating organization, and ensuring organizational performance on a macro level. The Board's approach to governing SAE is based upon vision, empowerment and total quality principles. Its concise Governance Policy Manual captures SAE's overall direction and describes the roles of SAE's Board committees.
