President’s Corner

Fellow SMSHE Members,

I hope your Fall season is going well. I would like to provide a couple of updates on some of the events happening within our engineering society. First, I would like to commend our Membership Team for all their hard work on membership retention and growth. Due to their work, we have almost returned our membership levels prior to Covid. Great work!

We have also recently filled the Awards Committee Chair position on the SMSHE Board of Directors. Our Board had to choose from a very good group of applicants, and the decision was tough. We would like to thank each of the applicants for their interest in serving on the Board and we wish them the best in the future. With that said, we would like to congratulate Joe Francis from PowerVac of Michigan, on becoming the new Awards Committee Chair for our SMSHE Chapter. Joe is no stranger to our membership and should step right into this role with ease. Please join me in congratulating Joe on this new responsibility!

Our next event for this year, on December 13th, will be our end of year Holiday Luncheon and Annual Business Meeting. I look forward to a great luncheon at Rochester Hills Banquet Center in Rochester Hills. Please use the link below to sign up. Bring your appetite and a gift for our annual donation to Penrickton Center for Blind Children.

Last, but not least, this will be my last year as the SMSHE President and I must say, it has been a true honor and privilege to serve you for the past two years. I will be working to transition all the responsibilities of this Office over to Dan Martino, who is with Corewell Health-William Beaumont University Hospital, and is the current President-Elect. His tenure will start effective January 1, 2024. Please join me in helping Dan have a successful tenure as President.

Again, thank you very much, and as always, I wish you and your Family a very Blessed and Happy Holiday Season!

Your SMSHE President,
Stanley Browning
