    • found: Society of Automotive Engineers. Organizational identity and branding manual, 2002: page 1 (Public perception and feedback over the years, however, has indicated that the word “automotive” in most English-speaking regions connotes automobile-related and therefore does not adequately represent all of our constituents and activities. Today, the name SAE International stands for a global organization that includes a number of customer groups in all forms of mobility. We will therefore use the name SAE International in lieu of the outdated Society of Automotive Engineers format. ... The Society's name has three forms*: SAE (no periods), SAE International, Society of Automotive Engineers. *The official name “Society of Automotive Engineers, Inc.” exists only in legal documentation for incorporation purposes, but this format should never be used in any business context by any employee. It is essential to always use the correct name when referring to the organization. Below are some common incorrect descriptions of our brand: The SAE, The Society of Automobile Engineers, The Society of Automotive Engineering, The Society of Aerospace Engineers) page 2 (References to copyright on all new publications and web pages should read, ڗ [current year] SAE International.
