July 2018 – Message from the Chair

Dear IEEE Member

TENSYMP2018 is currently underway bringing bright minds from throughout region 10 to Sydney. There is still an opportunity to register for Industry Day being held this Friday the 6th of July. We are offering free registrations to our student members.

On Monday Arslan Kiyani was voted in as the new IEEE Student Activities Chair. This month we are looking for someone in industry to take up a Section Mentor Chair. We are looking to start up a mentoring program for our student and young professional members and we need someone that can help make this happen. Please email me an expression of interest.

We are a month away from UNITE2018 a free networking and dinner event uniting all our members and exposing the benefits of the IEEE. Most of our technical chapters are coming on board such as PES, Edu, VTS, AP/MTT and IMS. There will also be opportunities to reach out to TISP, Young Professionals and Student groups. You can also discuss upgrading your membership status. If you have research, products or services that you would like to promote to the IEEE community, exhibits are available and are at the cost of a donation. Register now!

Please explore the opportunities being provided by the section this month and add value to your IEEE membership.

Please feel free to reach out to me with any suggestions or comments. Have a great July!

June 2018 – Message from the Chair

Dear IEEE Member

Something discussed frequently is value of membership. To extract value from IEEE membership it is important that you engage with events and opportunities. It is through engagement that you develop your network and advance knowledge. In this month’s newsletter there are many opportunities being advertised that cater to all members. For example, there are multiple opportunities to gain recognition of the work you do including the announcement for the new NSW Section Outstanding Volunteer awards. This month we are also providing funding for the WIE Leadership Summit and calling out for a new Student Activities Chair.

For those in industry a number of opportunities to share and give back are promoted. This commences with the Industry Day at IEEE TENSYMP (see full details here) being held in Sydney in early July, followed by UNITE2018 in August in which we are offering exhibits for the cost of a donation. We also have industry events and day pass associated with IEEE TALE2018 being held in Wollongong in December. More importantly, we are looking for industry members to give back and engage with our student members.

Please explore the opportunities being provided by the section this month and add value to your IEEE membership.

The next issue of Circuit will be released in July. Should you have an article that you would like to share, please send your article to our editor by the 15th of June. bill.sloman@ieee.org

There is also a call for articles to the R10 newsletter. If you have something to share with the region submit an article via http://bit.ly/r10nlsjul18

Please feel free to reach out to me with any suggestions or comments. Have a great June!
