The annual farewell meet of IEEE Student Branch DA-IICT was organized on November 1, 2018, at Lecture Theatre 3. It was attended by members of IEEE team, IAS team and WIE team of DAIICT. The meet marked the end of a tenure filled with fun and learning as the present core members of the Executive Committee signed off from their positions and the newly selected core members of the Executive Committee were officially vested with their powers and positions. It was a defining moment for all the members of the IEEE Student Branch DA-IICT as the young leaders took the mantle of responsibility and pledged to devote themselves to the duties and the Student Branch.
Members of the IEEE team, IAS team and WIE team who were to end their official tenures with IEEE took over the stage for sharing their experiences after working for a long time with the IEEE society. They briefed the events that took place around the year and everyone kept applauding for every successful event. Their words of advice inspired the youth to work collectively and make big things happen no matter what come may. This is where the significance of Diwali Meet lies in. This way, the leaders passed on the baton to the new core and introduced each of them.
The theatre was filled with rejuvenating energy and ambitious eyes. As an act of gratitude and acknowledgment and an effort to inspire young minds, awards were given to those who zealously worked hard, those who endeavored to prove their words of promise true and those who contributed to making DA-IICT’s IEEE student branch chapter what it is today. To mention a few, the awards were Best Volunteer of the year, Best New Committee Member, Most Promising New etc. Photographs were taken to capture the best moments, especially of the new core members with the ex-core members in order to constantly remind them of their duties which their senior members did sincerely that led them to see that day.
The evening was commemorated by sharing sweets and clicking pictures. The meet was not yet over. We also celebrated Diwali beginning by performing an auspicious aarti followed by bursting of firecrackers. The campus was decorated with vibrant and colorful rangoli and rows of lighted lamps. The day marked a perfect start of a new year and new beginning for the IEEE Student Branch DA-IICT.
