2022 Chat with the Expert Discussions

What is a chat? It's a two-day session in Member Connection with a subject matter expert on a variety of technical topics, soft skill development, leadership, and workforce development. Add your voice to this dialogue—ask questions, provide answers, and ultimately, gain insights from SAE and its members from around the globe.

Upcoming Chat: May 24 & 25: How to Publish a Book with SAE

Chat with SAE's Head of Books, Sherry Nigam, about how to publish a book with SAE International. Join the discussion here.

In the meantime, if you'd like to submit a question now, you can use this form. Please note: the questions submitted here ahead of time will be posted by the Member Connection Community Manager on your behalf on the days of the chat. Sherry will also only respond to your questions on the days of the chat.
