There’s great news for SME North Bay!
When a new SME chapter is formed, it’s normally in forming status for the first 2 years before being eligible to be granted full senior chapter status. This is why the chapter had the “F” in its chapter number, not for flunking out, but for Forming.
However, due to the vitality of the chapter, participation of members in events, and the impact the chapter has had in the North Bay manufacturing community, the chapter has been fast tracked to full senior chapter status. We, the chapter leadership team, are proud to announce that SME North Bay was just granted full senior chapter status, almost 6 months ahead of schedule! For those that are into the details, you’ll see that our chapter number is now 431 instead of F429.
Thanks again for helping to make the chapter a reality!
