"SAVE International® has given me the opportunity to learn my craft from experts in the field. The courses, the conference - and most importantly, the people - have taught me a tremendous amount that I continue to apply to my job. This has helped my company and its customers achieve increased value through cost reduction and performance improvement."
- Michael Cook, DuPont Co.

The society's main educational and training opportunity comes at the annual conference. Conference attendees can hone their skills, exchange ideas with peers, and purchase services or products from exhibitors.

SAVE International® also holds training seminars several times per year. Topics have included:

  • Creativity
  • Facilitation skills
  • Function Analysis System Technique (FAST)
  • Life cycle costing
  • Quality Function Deployment (QFD)
