IEEE Southeastern Michigan IA/PE chapter chairman is working hard to provide the newsletter with interesting Power Events. Enjoy. KEVIN TAYLOR, IEEE SEM PE/IA Chairman, email@example.com Interested in learning and contributing to the new IEEE standards to replace the IEEE Color Books In May 2016 the IEEE Southeastern Michigan IA/PE chapter will host the IEEE IAS Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Technical Conference (I&CPS). I&CPS is a gathering of experts who work and conduct research in the industrial application of electrical systems. The Conference will have a full program of tutorials, technical papers, and working group meetings during the 4 days of the conference. The conference will feature several events including a reception, a dinner/dance and an awards luncheon which will honor members of the IEEE Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Department. The Awards Luncheon recognizes the winners of the Prize Papers Awards, Standard Medallion Awards, and the Department Achievement Award. The LOC currently is having weekly planning teleconferences and will eventually need IEEE volunteers for the conference.

“Our organizational structure is changing starting now and moving on into 2014. We can better serve our members by moving to a more defined structure to facilitate communication and reduce redundancy of efforts. We are all volunteers and as such we should be able work within our Section in areas we have interest, feel comfortable, gain leadership skills and are intellectually stimulated. At the same time we should have experienced leaders to guide us so past best practices are retained and poor practices are not repeated. All volunteers, positions and duties remain the same. Just the organizational structure changes for the better. If you have concerns, compliments, or an opinion, I would like to hear from you.” 2014 IEEE SEM Organization (12-17-13) Robert Neff Section Chair (Elect 2014) RLNeff1@gmail.com
