2018 Section Officers Leadership Seminar

March 27-29, 2018
SAE International World Headquarters—Warrendale, PA

As part of the support given to SAE Section Officers, we offer a bi-annual leadership training known as SOLS (Section Officers Leadership Seminar). This training brings SAE Section Officers together to discuss ideas and strategies for leading a section and make valuable connections with peers from other sections.

On behalf of SAE International’s Membership & Sections Team, we look forward to working with you over the two-day conference that will cover a number of topics including:

  • Making the most of your member benefits
  • Getting engaged through SAE volunteer opportunities

  • Staying connected through SAE’s online community, Member Connection, and Section microsites

  • Utilizing other Section Officers to increase your network and problem solve

  • Sharpening your skills to help lead your Section

  • And more!
