Timothy Kurzweg
Welcome to IEEE Region 2!

It is my honor to serve as the Director of the IEEE Region 2 for 2015 and 2016. IEEE Region 2 has a proud heritage and serves over 32,000 members in Delaware, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, northern Virginia, southern New Jersey, West Virginia, and Washington, DC. We are one of 10 geographical regions around the world which make up the IEEE.

In this elected position, it is my responsibility to represent our region’s successes, needs, and concerns as a sitting Board member of IEEE MGA (Member and Geographical Activities), as well as a Board member of IEEE-USA. In these bodies, I ensure you that Region 2 will be proactive, allowing our members to succeed in their goals. In addition, I am a sitting member of the IEEE Board of Directors, where my responsibility is to guide IEEE in current and future directions.

My goals for my term in Region 2 echo many of the goals of IEEE. We need to engage two populations better than we have done in the past. The Young Professionals (members within 15 years of receiving their first degree) are the key to sustaining our organization. We must engage our Young Professionals, and allow them opportunities for leadership. The other population is the “working professionals”, who have needs which might include continuing educations opportunities, career services, or networking opportunities. I look forward to working with you all to better serve all of our members.

I would like to encourage you all to get involved as your time allows. This can be as attending a Section meeting or volunteering in different events. I realize that time is valuable and free time can be hard to find. I challenge each of the Sections to have events and volunteering commitments times that can fit a variety of schedules.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteers at the Region and Section levels, and I know many of you are participating in both. As a volunteer based organization, IEEE could not survive without you. It is these individuals that organize new professional, technical, and social activities all throughout the Region.

As you have new ideas that will help our members, I want to hear from you. Please share these ideas with me and I hope we can implement them for the benefit of all of Region 2.

Best Wishes,
Timothy Kurzweg
Region 2 Director, 2015-2016

A message from the director

Welcome to IEEE Region 2!

parvizfIt is a distinct honor and privilege to serve you as the Director of the IEEE Region 2 for 2013-2014 term. Although it is an immense challenge to continue Ralph Ford’s leadership, I look forward with great pleasure to working with the many engineers in the Region, especially, the recently elected Sections’ volunteers and officers through out the Region.

IEEE Region 2 has a proud heritage and serves over 32,000 members in Delaware, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Maryland, northern Virginia, southern New Jersey, West Virginia, and Washington, DC.

In this inaugural welcome message, I want to especially thank all of our volunteers who give their invaluable time to serve you by bringing and organizing new professional, technical, and social activities all throughout the Region. Some of the names of these volunteers are depicted on your section newsletters that you receive. If you recognize any of the names, next time you see them, pat them on the back for doing such an outstanding job. Finally, I would like to thank the employers for being flexible so these volunteers can be involved with the Sections’ activities. By having active Sections, the employers, engineering employees, consultants, and students will all benefit. Please attend and encourage others to attend technical presentations and other professional and social activities of your Section. With the exception of tutorials, most Sections’ meetings are free of charge. In this day and age of global market economy, keeping up-to-date with professional and technical issues is becoming increasingly crucial to survive, strive and thrive in the job market. Your Section is dedicated to bring you more relevant presentations that will enhance you and your career. We need you to propose new ideas for activities and your involvement is important and will enhance the rich tradition of the Region 2 IEEE. As your new Director, I look forward to working with you all. Please feel free to contact me at anytime.

Parviz Famouri

Region 2 Director, 2013-2014
