Recognition of our Full Set of 55 Orlando Section IEEE "Member 1st 50 Years"
We are honored to have an esteemed group of 55 Orlando Section members who have been identified as being members who have been with IEEE continuously since the beginning. As mentioned by Gordon Day, 2012 IEEE President and CEO, “IEEE was founded on January 1, 1963, through the merger of the AIEE (founded 1884) and IRE (founded 1912). So 2012 is IEEE's 50th year and we're celebrating it modestly, focusing primarily on honoring those members who have been with us continuously since the beginning. There are about 9400 of them. They have all now received a pin identifying them as a "Member 1st 50 Years". Please offer a note of congratulations when you see them in your travel. An extra special thank you to Lynn Guthrie and Stan Buchanan who also are active members of our 2012 IEEE Orlando EXCOM.

Thank you and congratulations!

Mike Orlovsky, IEEE Orlando Section Chair
