From The Desk Of...Mark Michalski
In the October From the Desk of..., 2019 SME President Mark Michalski shares his experience as a longtime SME member and the value he's derived over the last 27 years:
"In my installation speech last November, as I assumed the role of 2019 SME president, and which I later echoed in my January SME Speaks article, I stated it was a single phone call from an SME national leader that changed my life forever. Looking back on my SME membership from the beginning to today, I now realize that it was my first chapter meeting in 1992, before I officially joined, that put me on the path to where I am today.
I was looking for a job and networking opportunities. At the recommendation of a colleague, I went to a Boston Chapter 33 meeting. It’s a long story, but over the next 27 years, as an SME volunteer, I've served in many roles as a proud member and sometimes leader in this important organization.
Over the years, SME has provided me with a multitude of valued experiences:
- Connections to industry peers
- Trusted knowledge and resources on manufacturing technology and trends
- Career-enhancing leadership opportunities
- And most importantly of all, a deeper connection to the greater manufacturing community
