The SAH Leland Chapter in Detroit has over 45 active members. While many of the chapter members are from the automotive industry, all are welcome.
Chapter activities focus on the automotive heritage of the Detroit, Flint and southeast Michigan areas and often feature local automotive personalities and historic sites. Engaging students and young enthusiasts is a priority of the chapter mission of researching, recording and presenting automotive history.
The Chapter has teamed up with the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, MI to assist in updating and revising the Hall’s extensive archive of inductee biographies and tributes. This project is an example of how SAH members in any locale can volunteer to provide valuable assistance to local institutions. https://www.automotivehalloffame.org/
