SME and CME Develop Strategic Alliance (posted 7/5/07)

July 5, 2007

The Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME) have developed an alliance to strengthen the competitive skills, knowledge, and innovation capabilities of the Canadian manufacturing community through joint efforts in membership development, event planning, and professional and workforce development activities and programs. This alliance brings a full complement of resources to Canadian manufacturers, both from the overall company perspective and at the individual practitioner level.

CME supports manufacturing companies in developing long-term visions for Canadian manufacturing while helping address challenges in a rapidly growing global market. As an individual member-based professional society, SME works with companies and individuals to strengthen manufacturing workforce competency through educational resources, training, certification, and professional networking. Together, the organizations will collaborate on joint membership packages, industry events, workforce development initiatives, and creating awareness with the public that manufacturing is a critical part of the economy and a rewarding career choice.
