On Thursday, January 12, 2017 the IEEE Houston Section held a Volunteer Appreciation Dinner for its 2016 Committee, Society, and Group Chairpersons. For more than 80 years the IEEE Houston Section volunteer leaders in chaired position have been serving our Houston Section, this was especially special in 2016 because of the great growth in Membership, Mentorship, and Senior Membership. “We take time out to honor the sacrifice our chairpersons take in giving their generous commitment of time, support and inspiration to the success of the IEEE Houston Section” says Kheng Swee Goh, Chair of Houston Section.
This was especially special because of our Top Volunteer of the Year recipient for 2016 CB Sanderson. Christopher has been very active in the IEEE Houston Section in a variety of roles from Houston Section Secretary, Awards & Arrangements Chair, Website Committee Chair, and is a frequent Houston Section Guest Speaker. “An organization is only as strong as the volunteers we have supporting it and Christopher is a strong example of it”, says Alice Wang, Vice Chair of Houston Section.
“It has never been my goal to support so many roles, but I’m a firm believer that I can be part of the problem or the solutions to it and I’m looking forward to helping our 2017 volunteers taking a more leadership role within the Houston Section.”, says CB Sanderson.
