“When I heard the news that there was a SAMPE chapter coming to the Carolinas, I couldn’t wait. The networking opportunities and access to continued education programs provides me with valuable tools I can use on a daily basis to further my career.”
“I recently relocated to the Greenville, SC and had been a previous member of SAMPE. With SAMPE Carolina’s based in Charlotte, the central location provides North and South Carolina a local resource to this world-renowned society.”
“SAMPE Carolinas provides the area membership a great opportunity to expand their knowledge through networking and information exchange. I’m excited the chapter is based in Charlotte”
“I’m based outside of the Carolinas, but plan on attending the Carolinas chapter meetings and events. With the list of director’s this chapter has assembled, it is sure to be a success for all.”
What We Offer
Simple concept – Access to meaningful, valuable content.
When the directors petitioned for the chapter’s creation, there were five main areas we wanted to focus on;
- Local access for Carolinas members.
- Education as primary theme.
- Regular meetings, expo’s & tours.
- Success through participation.
- lnnovation through networking.
Going forward, our meetings, materials expo’s and plant tours will encompass all of the above. Our programs chair is busy working on an impressive list of speakers, willing to share their knowledge and industry experience with our membership.
With the Carolinas Chapter also being the only active chapter in the South East, our plan is to expand on the venues we hold meetings at throughout the year, and incorporate remote sessions in Georgia to reach out to SAMPE’s GA & FL members. To help with that goal, we are exploring holding meetings in Raleigh NC, Charleston SC, Savannah GA. Stay tuned for more on this in coming months.
United in a common goal – expand SAMPE in the South East.
Our board of directors all share a common vision, of seeing SAMPE grow and prosper in the South East.
Our National Director, John Ridgway of Stiles Machinery said it best, “Bringing a chapter to the Carolinas not only pays dividends to the established SAMPE membership, but also assures SAMPE a strong footprint in a rapidly expanding region of the country, that offers tremendous potential for aerospace companies as a whole”. “With several world-renowned companies already located here and others having announced plans to expand their presence in the Carolinas in the coming months & years, our chapter is strategically positioned to assist in any way possible and provide our growing membership, additional networking opportunities going forward”.
