  • 1.  Chat with the Experts: Meet SAE Authors October 17 - 27

    Posted 10-03-2022 10:13 AM
    We are bringing you a different kind of Chat with the Expert: you will be able to "meet" and chat with eleven of SAE's book authors. 

    Each author will be hosting their own discussion thread on the topic of their latest book published with SAE International. They have provided starter questions on the topics of their books, all of which you can preview here and submit your answers, as well as ask your own questions and comments ahead of time. You can choose whichever Book Chat you would like to participate in. SAE Members who participate in any of the Book Chats will be entered into a drawing to win a free copy of that book*. 


    And finally, the Head of SAE Books, @Sherry Nigam, will be available October 19 & 26 to answer your questions on how to publish with SAE.
