This is a call for nomination/Expression of Interest to fill the two positions of the Australian IEEE WIE AGs Forum, namely Forum Coordinator and Forum Liaison Officer. Please find attached

It is expected that the appointed officers would strive to maintain the momentum generated by WIE volunteers for the WIE International Leadership Summit in November this year in Brisbane and bring together WIE volunteers to support future endeavours e.g. R10 SYW Congress or WIE track at technical conferences hosted by any IEEE Section in Australia.
