It takes a great deal of effort to make an SME chapter successful. What is the definition of chapter success? While this means different things to different people, we have to look at what SME states about its purpose. Through its integrated strategic areas — events, publishing, membership, training & development and the SME Education Foundation — SME acts as “the solutionist” to help manufacturing stakeholders overcome their challenges with innovative, practical solutions. SME is “Making the future. Together.” Our local chapter's ability to both link members together and to disseminate knowledge can be considered one measure of success. These can be facilitated by effective communication, interaction with local manufacturing, leadership development and best practices.
To acquire and distribute quality manufacturing knowledge among its members as well as the broader community resulting in increased interest and improved manufacturing skill base in the area. We also desire to support our Charleston area youth in their knowledge and awareness of manufacturing as a viable career option.
