Setting a “prudently aggressive” mindset in advancing SAE's goals in the mobility ecosystem.

Among the projects and plans heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown was the 2020 SAE International presidency.

I'm Todd Zarfos, and as some of you may remember, it was my SAE presidency that was held hostage that infamous and challenging year. This is an exaggeration, of course, as I was still free to perform many of the basic functions of the SAE presidency: participating in SAE International Board of Directors meetings, offering opinions and ideas to the board and SAE staff about how to expand SAE's importance in the mobility industry, “Zooming” with industry leaders and performing the sundry tasks required of the president.
