Chapter 36 Activities:

Technical Meetings:  Typically held monthly on the second Wednesday evening (September through June) We try to schedule plant tours and presentations and are always looking for ideas and assistance.

Executive Committee Meetings:  Typically held the Wedneday evening following the Technical Meeting.  

The December meeting is traditionally a holiday meeting where we invite spouses, friends, and family as well as our past Chapter 36 Chairs to a non-technical evening out.

In late April we support the Skills Ohio (formerly VICA) Precision Machining Competition at the Ohio State Fairgrounds in Columbus.  We serve as judges and help with setup and teardown.  

We assist four SME student chapters at Ohio University, Ohio State University, Columbus State Community College and Zane State College


The Society of Manufacturing Engineers serves its members and the international manufacturing community through the advancement of professionalism, knowledge and learning.
