A message on membership in the SAWE from the President

Membership in the Society of Allied Weight Engineers (SAWE) affords you access to a vast library of mass properties technical papers, reference materials, industry standards, training courses and new processes, plus direct connections to products and services from our vendors. SAWE membership also includes our magazine (the Journal), monthly SAWE news bulletins, and blogs for forum discussion. SAWE membership is an opportunity to participate in evolving and maintaining industry standards for mass properties. It is a community of technical sharing as well as building personal connections and relationships.

SAWE is taking industry lead by developing a Mass Properties Certification Program to address quality, mentoring, and experience related forecast needs for tomorrow’s community of engineers. This exciting program will provide many advantages to engineers, companies, and customers throughout industry. Membership participation is key to this very important endeavor.

SAWE membership provides benefits and opportunities to help you stay current with the latest technologies, information, and development. The SAWE membership community is continually providing support to the mass properties engineering profession. Visit sawe.org to review our many products and resources.

I encourage every mass property engineer to join SAWE and explore the opportunities for enhancing your engineering experience. We welcome your participation.

Regards,

John Hargrave, President

Dues Collection Policy 2018-2019

Attention Members

We will once again have a membership drive for the last quarter of the 2017-2018 fiscal year beginning February 1. The reinstatement fee of $20 to renew membership for the remainder of the year will be waived. In addition, the reinstated member and new or renewing members will have their membership end date extended to April 30, 2019.

SAWE is going to try a new policy to help curb the workload of the Executive Director, Ron Fox, and the Secretary of Finance, Kim Brown. Beginning February 1, 2018 membership renewal and new or reinstated membership should be done online from our website (https://www.sawe.org/about/membership/application).

If the Chapter Treasurer or his designee wishes to collect fees, it becomes the responsibility of the chapter to compile the records for means of collection and for the distribution of the funds either to or from the Secretary of Finance.

Ron Fox, Executive Director

Kim Brown, Secretary of Finance
