IEEE USA President Campaign Blogs
Many of us have been educated in traditional engineering studies, learning to solve complex problems in a limited field and hopefully learning how to learn about and solve issues in other fields in the course of doing this.
On Sunday March 19 at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View the IEEE Engineering Milestone for “The Mother of All Demos” was unveiled.
Why should you be a member of the IEEE and what can the IEEE do to provide more value to you?
Region 6 Directors Blogs (2015-2016)
Have you ever missed an interesting technical chapter meeting in your IEEE section because you weren’t in town?
The IEEE is a very large organization with 100’s of employees working for many different operational units. Finding the right person to answer particular inquiries can be hard.
How can we increase the value of IEEE membership to Region 6 employers and thus increase their support of IEEE membership?

I just returned from the IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers (POCO) Conference to find out about IEEE conference services offered by the IEEE and also to find out tips and hints from the various conference organizers at the event.
There are limits to physical resources. There are limits to time and space (regardless of how many universes there are). But to the prepared mind, there are no limits to knowledge and imagination.
Everyone likes to be recognized! Recognition by peers can be an important motivator to members and volunteers.
One of the best ways to retain IEEE members is to recognize them for their service to society and the profession.
I was going to call this blog “So long, and thanks for all the fish,” referring to Douglas Adam’s Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy books, but a funny thing happened at the IEEE meeting series in November.
The 2015 Women in Engineering International Leadership Conference (WIE ILC) was held April 23 to April 25 in San Jose, CA with a special hackathon on Sunday April 26, 2015.
In a recent email chain between members of the Santa Clara Valley Consultants Network (an IEEE Consultants Network) there was an interesting analysis of the decline in total number of electrical engineers and computer hardware engineers in the US over several years.
