Chairman's Corner

Last month, the EXCOM Committee had a very successful meeting. We discussion ways to increase the interest, and participation of the members in the IEEE activities. Dr. Flinchbaugh, Dr. Sundaram and I will study the possibilities of organizing a half-day luncheon meeting with high-tech company top managers and university faculty. The objective of the meeting is to talk about the benefits of IEEE and how to get involved. This commission will present budget and program in next meeting. Please give me ideas on how to reactivate the section and increase membership activities. Also, our annual Wet 'n Wild outing will be on October 9. Please mark your calendar to attend.

I would like to invite all of you to come and attend our meetings. Your participation is very important for the success of IEEE in the Central Florida area. Also, I am very pleased to announce that the Orlando section will receive about 11 Millennium Medals to recognize the service activities of the Section Members. We have received more than 18 nominees. The EXCOM committee will select 11 names and forward them to the IEEE National Office.
