Welcome to SME's Grand Rapids Chapter 38!

MISSION
Our mission is to provide manufacturing solutions through education and professional growth opportunities for current and future members. Encourage members and nonmembers to contact each other for discussions and answers to specific problems.

VISION
Our vision is to be the most sought-after manufacturing resource for our chapter members, community and SME organization. We encourage our student members to work with Discover Manufacturing to see all the opportunities West Michigan has available for them.  We also want to encourage all the different associations to network and attend each others activities to see what West Michigan has to offer.  We regularly post events with ASQ, ISM, SWE, MPA, APICS and NADCA.

SCHOLARSHIPS
We provide scholarships to students in the West Michigan Area that would like a future in Manufacturing through a variety of trade schools, colleges and universities  for jobs in Michigan.
