A Message from The Chair – Ane Marie Harb

As the new Chair for SME Nashville Chapter 43, I am committed to further chapter development, and ongoing involvement of professionals/students in the chapter.

I am currently the Quality Manager (ASQ CQE/SSBB), also overseeing Safety/Environmental Departments at Comefri USA located in Hopkinsville, KY.

I started with SME Student Chapter S239 while attending Middle Tennessee State University, Engineering Technology Department-Master Program. I was the President for the Student Chapter for two consecutive years (2014-2015). I joined SME Nashville Chapter 43 in 2016, and have served as Secretary, Treasurer, and Chair Elect.

There are ongoing learning and networking opportunities when attending SME Nashville Chapter 43 events. This chapter is dedicated to promoting manufacturing in TN, KY, neighboring states, and supporting students interested in a career in an industrial/manufacturing field.

SME Nashville Chapter 43 is part of SME National. For further information, please visit SME National website: https://www.sme.org/

SME 43 Executive Committee

SME Chapter 43 has monthly executive meetings usually on the first Tuesday of every month.   We also typically have facility tours on the third Tuesday of every month with dinner to follow for networking opportunities for all members including several student chapters.

As a local arm of SME National, we strive to provide educational scholarships and financial assistance to local high schools, universities, and technical schools involved in educating individuals who will be employed in the manufacturing industry.  We also endeavor to connect employers with graduating students who are seeking employment.
