SBE Holds National Meeting
Outgoing SBE President Barry Thomas said during the society’s national meeting in New York state that he strived to make lasting improvements. Thomas mentioned several ways the engineering group has stepped up its education efforts for members, such as offering online certification courses.

This month the SBE launched jobs online, which is searchable by criteria, he said. More than 80 jobs are on the site. Users can have an e-mail sent when new jobs matching preferred criteria come online. Employers can post a job for free and those stay online for 60 days until they’re filled. Members see more information than non-members, an incentive to join the society.

In fact Barry said he found his current job as vice president of technology at Lincoln Financial through the job bank. “I’m not only the president; I’m a client,” he quipped.

New officers were inducted, with Vinnie Lopez moving from vice president to president of the society for a one-year term and finishing the meeting.

For the first time, the national SBE meeting was streamed over the Web, which I found helpful, and I bet members who could not attend the event did as well.
