Manning Oaks Elementary in Alpharetta, GA hosted its first Family Science Night (FSN) on January 28.
Over 500 students and their families participated in 15 activities with 25 volunteers.
The IEEE Atlanta Section is hosting a Family Science Night at Ocee Elementary School (4375 Kimball Bridge Road in Alpharetta) on Wednesday, October 28th from 6:30 to 8:00. We are looking for guest science instructors and volunteers for this event. As a guest science instructor, you would lead three, identical twenty-five minute classes with students and their families. Classes begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8:00 p.m. You can select your topic and determine the presentation of the content. Or, if you can lead a stock activity, Melody can help guide you to a topic, forward the activitys description and its instructions, and have the supplies waiting in your classroom at FSN. If you are interested in becoming a FSN volunteer or have any questions, please contact Melody Richardson @ Richardson.Melody@gmail.com or 678-429-1858.

IEEE Region 3 Member Engagement Report – July, 2015
IEEE Region 3,
Tonight is a special Region 3 ExCom meeting that will highlight MELC activities including the First Year Member Experience Project, FYME. I have attached the meeting slides and the latest IEEE and Region 3 Member Engagement Reports. Please review and share with your Sections.
The FYME Pilot Sections
Eastern North Carolina Section – Mentors, Mauricio Cano Galvis, Mary Ellen Randall
Florida West Coast Section – Mentor, Jim Howard
Piedmont Section – Mentors, Allen Thomas, Lee Stogner
Savannah Section – Mentors, Rami J Haddad, Bill Ratcliff
These Sections have started their FYME projects and will be available to share what they learn with the rest of the Region 3 team.
The Area / Council Support Team
Area 1 Chair – Sean Haynes
Area 2 Chair – Paul Goodson
Area 3 Chair – William Marshall
Area 4 Chair – James Anderson
Area 5 Chair – Timothy S Bigelow
Area 6 Chair – Eric Grigorian
Area 7 Chair – Jacquelyn D N Cunningham
Area 8 Chair – Anthony M Richardson
Area 9 Chair – Daniel T Tulloch-Reid
These members are particularly important to this project in that they have senior experience with the IEEE and they are geographically close to a small manageable number of Sections that they will help us support. Many thanks to Mary Ellen for volunteering the time of these IEEE Leaders for this project.
At tonight’s Region 3 ExCom Meeting, we will answer questions from everyone regarding the execution phase of the FYME Project. This is not an exercise where we throw documentation “over the wall” and wish you luck in the future. This project will continue to be supported until we are retaining our First Year Members and this process is a ongoing part of our Section activities. All of the Area Chairs are encouraged to participate in the Monday night meetings that the FYME team have been having. If anyone wants to add new detail to our documentation, you are welcome. If you require web casts to engage your entire Sections as a FYME team, not a problem. Bottom line, we are in this together and we will work together to grow back to and exceed our previous high of over 30,000 members.
We still have other Member Engagement activities,
– Student Members
– Company Outreach
– Renewal / Retention
– Senior Member Upgrades
– Life Members
– Our various Committees that deliver Educational, Career and other Professional support
One activity does not replace another, it does take a range of targeted campaigns to ensure that our members are engaged to the point that Region 3 can reach a goal of 50,000 members.
This project is but one of the activities that it takes to encourage, motivate and grow a organization of thousands of members here in the Southeast. Each of us joined the IEEE for our own reasons. A big part of this project is to find out what these new members need from the IEEE and establish ways in which those needs can be met. We should also review our current, long standing members and ask what can the IEEE do to engage and support them as well.
Don’t forget that we have the July 21 MD Webcast coming up. Registration details are included below.

Georgia Tech’s HyTech Racing team needs an engineer to perform an unofficial technical review of their vehicle next week so that they can compete in this year’s national competition. If you’re able to help, or know someone who might be, please reach out to Elliot Moore at email@example.com.
Here’s some additional background information:
Georgia Tech’s HyTech Racing team (http://hytechracing.gatech.edu/) is in the finals stages of development of an electric vehicle for the Formula Hybrid competition (http://www.formula-hybrid.org/) on April 27th-30th in Loudon, NH. The Formula Hybrid event is an annual event that is sponsored by IEEE and SAE. Part of the competition process requires that competing vehicles be reviewed by a qualified engineer who can provide feedback on their electrical safety. This is not an actual safety inspection – it’s just an opportunity for the team to get feedback about potential safety issues that would result in disqualification while there’s still time for them to do something about it. It’s not necessary that you become an expert in the competition rules; experienced Formula Hybrid Electrical Inspectors will be available via Skype during the inspection to provide guidance and help.
In order to qualify, an onsite interview to see the vehicle will need to be set up between April 5 – April 11, 2015. The expected time commitment is approximately three to four hours over the course of one or two days.
If you’d like more background, see the attached “Reviewer Solicitation” announcement. I’ve also attached a copy of the pre-event electrical review guide for volunteers.
