Congrats to Shane Williams one of ASABE’s {Top 5} New Faces of Engineering – 2013

“Being an engineer is more than just a job; it is a way of life,” says Shane Williams. “Your perception of the world and how the world works–and your way of thinking–all change as your skills mature.” The logical outgrowth of that development is an unceasing curiosity about everything that occasionally needs to be forced into shut-down mode to allow one’s energy and passion to “recharge.”

It’s a strategy that works for Shane, who has earned a laudable reputation for his dedication and passion for his profession and associated activities. As a student, he “did it all,” says a former professor: field trips, the 1/4-Scale Tractor team, new-student tours, Wisconsin Section and international meetings, all in addition to an impressive list of scholarly achievements and publications.

As an engineer with Kuhn North America, Shane is now working on windrow mergers and continues to develop his skillset. Outside the office, he promotes the profession by his involvement with ASABE, particularly with the Young Professionals Community, through which he provides leadership to numerous Society committees, councils, and initiatives.

Thinking of Taking the Ag Eng PE Exam? Initiatives Make the Decision Easier

Thinking of taking the ag eng PE exam in 2013? ASABE’s Professional Engineering Institute, the Dale Wm. Zimmerman PE Fund and the ASABE Board of Trustees have again committed funding for two incentives aimed at encouraging members to take the ag eng PE exam in October 2013.

First-Time Takers: We’ll pay your exam application/test fees, up to $300, for 30 first-time takers of the exam. But it gets better – as an added incentive, we’ll also give you $150 to be used any way you see fit. All just for sitting for the ag eng PE exam. This offer is only open to ASABE members who are first-time candidates. A first-time exam taker is defined as someone who has not attempted to take a professional engineering exam in any discipline prior to the October 2013 administration. See complete details here.

Repeat Takers: Members who are willing to take the ag eng PE exam, regardless of whether you have sat for the PE exam in any discipline previously, will be reimbursed $150. This offer is available to 30 members on a first-come, first-served basis. See complete details here.

Please direct all questions to Mark Crossley.
