Dear IEEE-NoVA Section Members,
Happy New year!
First, I would like to thank the 2016 Section and Chapter executive committee members for their service and congratulate all the new 2017 Section and Chapter leadership for their election.
We are all looking forward to an exciting 2017 year for IEEE-NoVA. The plan for 2017 is to actively support IEEE activities throughout Northern Virginia. Due to the unique geographic area for IEEE members we have amazing opportunities to continue informing and educating our IEEE members for state of the Art developments in electrical and electronic engineering. We plan to resuscitate dormant chapters, reach out to affinity groups, student chapters and plan for extensive collaboration with joint events with our neighboring sections Washington DC, Baltimore, Richmond and beyond. We will actively interact with IEEE USA, IEEE Region 2 leadership and update and engage our members on developments that affect all of us and our professional organization. Finally, a celebration for 2400 years of Science, commemorating the birth of Aristoteles, will be pursued.
IEEE is committed to helping you gain the knowledge and technical expertise that can promote your carrier and help you achieve your professional goals. In addition to the International high tech IEEE conferences, we have local IEEE events happening every day. I encourage our members to attend the local IEEE events organized by IEEE-NoVa Chapters and ask our new IEEE-NoVA chapter officers to plan to attend the IEEE NoVA executive committee meetings to obtain support, funding, and advice for your chapter plans. IEEE is a volunteer organization by professionals like yourself. We are always looking for active volunteers to serve as IEEE officers and in committees. Please contact me for more information.
We are all very fortunate to be in a profession that shapes and accelerates technology for the immediate present and far into the future. As IEEE members, we all pledge to promote and use our technology for the betterment of humanity.
With best wishes for the new year,
Kiki Ikossi, Ph.D.
