Peter Z. Bulkeley named 2001 SME president. (Presstime Notes).
As SME's 69th president, Bulkeley, professor emeritus in manufacturing engineering, Boston University, MA, will work to make SME more agile, leaner and more responsive to its members' professional needs. "Our members hear that it's not business as usual at SME, and indeed it's not. We're looking at ways SME can play a more active role in assisting members to maintain career-long employability and portability," says Bulkeley.
"Rapid change has become a way of life at SME. It energizes and is beneficial. In an increasingly complex world, we are building a stronger Society, one with staying power for the years ahead." He assured SME members that they could depend on the Society's continuing core focus on excellence, professional integrity and the individual manufacturing practitioner.
Two of Bulkeley's main priorities during 2001 will be the CareerMentor competency assessment tool and the Personal Productivity Library CD. These new benefits are aimed at helping SME members acquire and maintain the skills and know-how that earn and secure a professionally regarding career-long livelihood.
An SME member since 1980, Bulkeley was elected to the SME College of Fellows in 1998 and to the SME Board of Directors in 1995.
