This is the Kick-Off Meeting for the newly created IEEE-Madison Joint Power & Energy and Industry Application Society (PES-IAS). The meetng will start with an election of the PES-IAS officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary/Treasurer).

Electric motors and generators (machines) are essential to our modern way of life. As electric energy consumption steadily increases annually, these ubiquitous workhorses continue to be mass-produced for performing the pumping, heating, cooling, drilling, pressing, cutting, grinding, and moving that occurs every minute of every day. The construction and operation of electric machines is predicated on magnetism, but if it were electrostatics (static cling), what would change?
