ANNUAL REPORT DEADLINE 21 FEBRUARY!
Your last reminder! If you haven't already submitted them, the annual required reports for IEEE Units (Sections, Subsections, Chapters, Affinity Groups and Councils) are due postmarked by the 21 February 2003. Forms, information and rebate details can be found on the web at http://www.ieee.org/scsreports. We encourage all units to submit the forms electronically. If you do, there is no need to send hard copy. If you have questions, contact sec-rebate@ieee.org or call Peggy Kovacs, +1 732
562 5513.
ASSOCIATE MEMBERS AS OFFICERS?
Volunteer recruitment and retention seems to be an almost universal problem for Sections, Chapters and Affinity Groups. IEEE policy does not currently allow for officer positions to be held by members of Associate grade. Do you think that policy should be changed? We'd like to know how you feel about this subject. Please take part in the poll on the Section/Chapter
Volunteer Virtual Community at https://www.ieeecommunities.org/section-chapter_vol. While you are there, feel free to join in the discussions, or start a new one. This is your forum!

SAMPLE LETTERS ON WEB
To make your job just a little easier, we have letters already written for
you on the following subjects:
*Acknowledgement of Contributions
*Fellows Congratulations

All you have to do is fill in the appropriate blanks. The letters can be found at:
http://www.ieee.org/organizations/rab/scs/Resources/sample_letters.htm. Do you have a sample letter that you would like to contribute or one that isn't there that you could use? Contact Vicki Waldman at v.waldman@ieee.org.

IEEE SOCIETY DISTINGUISHED LECTURER PROGRAMS, ALWAYS IMPROVING
The Distinguished Lecturer (DL) programs offered by IEEE Societies offer access to more than 500 lecturers worldwide. Information about these lecturers is available online at
http://www.ieee.org/organizations/tab/cialectweb2.html. From this page, you can follow links directly to an auto-retrievable e-mail or to the Society's DL page on their own website. Finding a lecturer online is easy, so is hosting a lecture online! Internet conferencing can be used to extend the reach of the DL program. Lecturers can address audiences worldwide without traveling. Internet conferencing allows for question and
answer periods, instant interactions and a variety to supporting materials. IEEE staff sets up the program based on your specific requirements. Simply visit http://www.ieee.org/web/webconf/index.html for an introduction and further information.
 
Submit your DL program experiences. What worked, what didn't? Do you have a great system in place? Please send all responses to April Nakamura, IEEE Technical Activities, a.nakamura@ieee.org.
