The IEEE Dayton Section will be holding a Networking Event focused on the topic of IEEE Membership Grade Elevation, on Friday, July 29, 2016, 1:15-4:15 at the University of Dayton Research Institute, River Campus, 1700 Patterson Blvd, Dayton, Ohio.

This is a free IEEE networking event open to all IEEE members and prospective members and will be held in conjunction with the NAECON-OIS Conference Poster Session. We will focus our discussion on elevating IEEE Members to Senior Members and provide resources for eligible* IEEE Members to apply for IEEE Senior Membership.

Come to network, review the NAECON-OIS posters, and vote on your favorite poster.

  • IEEE Senior Members: Meet eligible IEEE Members and, if appropriate, provide a reference for these IEEE Senior Member applicants.
  • IEEE Member: Review the IEEE Senior Member Eligibility Requirements and if you would like to apply for Senior Membership, bring 3 hard copies of your resume (plus a soft copy on CD).
  • Non Members: Come to learn more about IEEE.

* Check out the IEEE Dayton Section page for Senior Membership FAQ for answers to the following:

  • Why apply for IEEE Senior Membership?
  • Why eligible members do not apply for IEEE Senior Membership?
  • Do I need to be nominated by a Senior Member?

When registering, be sure to select your member grade (Member, Senior Member, Fellow Member, Non Member) in the “Menu Selection”.

Start your weekend off right with some help from IEEE!

There is a volunteer opportunity with the Dayton Metro Libraries, leading or assisting with their maker kits.  The Dayton Metro Library system has 11 Maker Kits and is looking for volunteers to lead or assist with programs.  This would be a terrific way for AFRL (and other base) personnel to be involved in the community and in helping grow future scientists, engineers, and other inventors.

Among the kits are Circuits, e-Textiles, Laser, Computing, and Programming of Finch Robots.  The full list of kits is here:

The volunteer coordinator is Mr. David Hicks,, 937-496-8638.  They have had the kits for about a year and have been learning how to use them with different age groups.  They’re open to new ideas for the existing kits and for new kits.

A great opportunity for Dayton Section members to give back!
