According to a survey conducted by the Society of Allied Weight Engineers in 2018, organizations that design, build and/or operate aeronautical, marine, offshore or land vehicles need to promote the value of mass properties engineers within their organization to ensure vehicles can operate to their intended performance and safety parameters. Simultaneously, organizations must focus on replacing and transferring the knowledge and experience of mass properties engineers who will be leaving in large numbers in the next 5 to 10 years.
The aforementioned is the leading paragraph to a letter being distributed to the leaders in government and industry to promote the value of mass properties engineering, while also inviting them to learn more about SAWE and how SAWE can address the collective needs of those organizations who need competent mass properties engineers. The attached letter and accompanying enclosure have been distributed to the leadership of over 200 addressees worldwide. We want to increase the reach of this letter by asking you to share it with your fellow mass properties engineers and elevate this letter up your management chain to garner support for increased organizational awareness and involvement. We also encourage you to utilize this letter to secure financial support for attending the next SAWE International Conference in May in Norfolk, Virginia.
President, Society of Allied Weight Engineers
