2020 Annual Chapter Recognition
Published
On behalf of 2020 SME Member Council Chair Brett A. Peters, PhD, and the entire SME Member Council, we're happy to announce the winners of the 2020 Annual Chapter Recognition awards.

To attain platinum, gold, silver and bronze status, chapters are rated in four different areas: professional development, communications, the advancement of manufacturing and merit. This year, 11 chapters achieved platinum status — a record high — while six achieved gold status, 17 silver and 23 bronze. Greater Charleston Chapter 430 — the first to achieve platinum status in 2014 — is now celebrating its sixth time at the platinum level. 
 
Thank you to all these high-performing chapters and their chapter officers for all their ongoing work supporting our members, our organization and the manufacturing community. Please join us in congratulating these chapters by commenting below.
