The National Engineers Week Foundation and its coalition strive to be the global leader in cultivating and celebrating the engineering profession. The cornerstone program is Engineers Week. All programs are designed to reach out to current and future generations of engineering talent. Participate in any E-week activity to show the next-generation workforce what an automation professional does. E-week, Feb. 15-21, 2009, this year offers options for volunteers entitled One Million Hours; Engineer Your Life; Get Your Materials; and Girl Day.



One Million Hours Initiative – Every day engineers and engineering students volunteer time to help inspire and inform students, educators, and others in their communities. Through www.eweek.org , the million hours portal record volunteered service hours. The goal is to reach one million hours in calendar year 2009. Each time you volunteer to inspire, inform, or assist in science, technology, engineering, or math education, come back and add to the site.



Engineer Your Life – EYL is a movement to interest college-bound high school girls in engineering. Two-dozen college outreach fairs begin Feb. 5 in Pittsburgh, PA. They feature college admissions and resource experts for high school students, counselors, and parents. National Engineers Week Foundation serves as EYLsecretariat and is seeking volunteers to host EYL tables. Materials and exhibit fees are sponsored by EYL. Handouts can be branded by individual organizations. See the full schedule of fairs here and for those who wish to volunteer in their areas, contact engineeringwomen@eweek.org .



Get Your Materials– Free volunteer planning kits are available; visit the Engineers Week Online Store at www.eweek.org . Kits include a new poster, ideas for organizing community events, and information about what's happening nationally and globally this year and beyond.



Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day 2009 (Feb. 19)– A free planning kit with a new graphic is available. Girl Day draws attention to engineering as an interesting, rewarding career for young women. Sign the Pledge Roster and check out the Engineering Women’s projects .



The Los Angeles section presents Instrumentation 2009 (Feb. 19, Carson Center, Carson, CA), the largest technical training and exhibition of process instrumentation and control technologies on the West Coast. Details are posted at www.instrumentation2009.com . Videos and photos from last year's event and a list of attendees, exhibitors, and training classes are available. The previous expo hosted more than 500 registered attendees, 75 exhibits, and a dozen technical training sessions. The expo and training are free to anyone in the refinery, water, wastewater, power generation, and process industries involved with instrumentation and process control. A job fair, CCST, and CAP training are available. Attendees who pre-register online receive a free gift at the door. Exhibitors and sponsors interested in participating can contact John Prince at (714) 478-8816 or jprince@calcems.com .

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
