Successful Conference Planning Meeting in Hamburg

The European Chapter host committee has selected an excellent venue for SAWE’s 79th International Conference. We’re very excited to share the charm, ambiance, and hospitality of the Privathotel Lindtner at the conference next May. It’s a beautiful facility, has great meeting room accommodations, and the food is amazing.

The Executive Committee was represented on site by President-John Hargrave, Executive Director-Bill Boze, and Senior VP-Errol Oguzhan. In addition VP Technical-Robert Zimmerman, VP Internet-Greg Ray, Executive VP-Clint Stephenson, and Financial Chairman-Fred Brown supported via Zoom Telecom.

This meeting was held Saturday, Sep 28th at the conference hotel site. It was a full day of event planning, facilities tour, schedule coordination, and budget planning. It was hard work, but the result is a fantastic SAWE Conference experience for you next May. Make your plans now to attend and follow the announcements on SAWE.org for more details.

On Monday Bill, Errol, and John were invited by Kim Mittler to address the Airbus mass properties group about SAWE.  The meeting was a great opportunity to meet additional mass properties engineers and to discuss benefits and activities of SAWE membership.

Include SAWE in your Career Development and Goals

The SAWE provides many valuable technical resources to the mass properties community worldwide. This is a result of many years of participation, volunteerism, and corporate support. You have the opportunity to harvest information from these resources. You also have the opportunity to contribute by either adding technical content, development of standards, or actively supporting the SAWE organization’s committees, projects, and officers.
There are many career development opportunities within the SAWE’s activities. Some are technical, some administrative, and all of them build working relationships within an international infrastructure of the mass properties community that isn’t available anywhere else.
As you set your career goals each year, include opportunities within SAWE as an unrestricted avenue to extend your development technically, professionally, and as a leader.
