PAPERWORK COMING DUE!
 On the way to all IEEE Sections are packages containing forms for reports
of 2001 activity. Specifically, meeting forms and current officer report
forms have been mailed to Section Secretaries and financial report packages
are in the mail to Treasurers. The deadline for submitting the completed
reports is 22 February 2002. Once a Section's reports are submitted and
approved, that Section's rebate will be released. A 10% bonus will be
added to the rebate for reports received at IEEE by the deadline (hard copy
sent via mail should be postmarked by 22 February).
 
Please note:
--All forms and related instructions are also available on the web at
http://www.ieee.org/scsreports. If reports are sent electronically, it is
not necessary to send hard copy of the same forms.
-- In cases where the position of Secretary or Treasurer is not filled, the
packages will go to the Unit Chair.
-- Reminder letters were sent to Chapter Chairs to submit reports to
Sections (or Council). Be sure all Chapter reports are included in the
Section's package before mailing to IEEE headquarters, or verify that they
were sent electronically.
-- For Units participating in the Concentration Banking program, year-end
statements will be mailed by 15 January 2002.
--Council officers: all Councils should submit financial data in the form
L50 as well as a list of officers for 2002. Councils with Chapters should
submit reports of meeting activity for those Chapters.
-- Don't forget, there is a new bank signature requirement to be met this
year before rebates will be released. See the L50 financial form and
instructions for details.
 
Questions or comments may be sent to sec-rebate@ieee.org.

 

NEW CONFERENCE NEWSLETTER
The IEEE Technical Activities Department has launched an electronic
newsletter for volunteers involved in conference activities. The
yet-to-be-named quarterly newsletter will be sent to Conference Chairs,
Conference Information Contacts, Conference Treasurers/Financial Officers,
Society Presidents, Society Treasurers, and members of TAB, the Regional
Conference Committee, and the IEEE Meetings and Services Committee.
 
If you are interested in receiving the newsletter, and are not a volunteer
who will automatically receive the newsletter, please contact the editor,
John Wettlaufer, IEEE Technical Activities, telephone +1 732 465 7809;
email j.wettlaufer@ieee.org".

 

WELCOME THE 2002 IEEE FELLOWS!
  A list of 2002 IEEE Fellows and information about the IEEE Fellow program
is available at http://www.ieee.org/fellows. The election of the new slate
of IEEE Fellows is effective 1 January 2002. New Fellows and their
nominators were notified of their election by email or fax. For additional
information, contact Jennifer Guida, IEEE Corporate Activities, telephone
+1 732 562 3843; email to j.guida@ieee.org.
 
IEEE FOUNDATION GRANTS ARE AVAILABLE
 Are you planning a project that will improve math, science, and technology
education; recognizes and celebrates engineering achievements; or preserves
and promotes the history of electrical and information technologies? Then
you may be eligible to receive a grant from the IEEE Foundation. The 2002
deadlines for proposal submission are 14 January, 25 April, and 30
September. To learn more about the IEEE Foundation and to review its
granting guidelines, please visit http://www.ieee.org/foundation or
telephone at +1 732 562-3930.
 
WATCH FOR UNAUTHORIZED USE OF IEEE LOGO
 It has recently come to the attention of the IEEE Technical Activities
Department that an outside organization, using the names WSES, WSEAS, or
Worldses, has been using the IEEE name and logo, and the name of the IEEE
Signal Processing Society to promote their conference activities without
permission. Neither IEEE nor the Signal Processing Society has endorsed
these conferences/meetings. IEEE is not a sponsor of these meetings and is
not responsible for the quality of WSES/WSEAS events or publications.
Therefore there is concern about the representation that there is an
affiliation with IEEE.
 
Please avoid approving any level of co-sponsorship with WSES or WSEAS or
their various entities until further notice. If you already have
sponsorship arrangements with WSES or WSEAS, if you receive any emailed
publicity or complaints from your members who may have attended conferences
sponsored by WSES/WSEAS, please notify Mercy Kowalczyk via email at
mercy@ieee.org, or fax 732-235-1627.
 
In addition, if you subscribe to any of the Transactions published by
WSES/WSEAS, and can surrender a copy that will not be returned, we would
appreciate receiving it.
 
Thank you for assisting us in this important matter.
