tutorials, and exhibits. It is the most influential conference in Region 3
for promoting awareness of the technical contributions made by our
profession to the advancement of engineering science and to the community.
As usual, attendance and technical program participation from areas outside
IEEE Region 3 are encouraged and welcomed.
SoutheastCon 2003 will be held at the Renaissance Jamaica Grande Resort, in

Region 3 - Senior Member Initiative
The year 2002 is almost over but if we hurry, Region 3 can join an elite
club of regions that have achieved their goals of elevating key members to
the Senior Member status. As of today, we have elevated 113 of our goal of
157. That's 72.0% of our goal. In one of Dave Green's classes, that's not
a grade you want to take home to your parents. We still have time to get a
good region grade before the holidays. You already know good people in
your Sections that qualify for Senior Member. I bet that most of them have
a dusty old Senior Member form that has been sitting on their desk for
years. Let them know that the process is now all electronic and
easier. In fact if they go to the following web site, they can get started
and have the application done before the Evening News tonight,
For backup material on the Senior Member program, you can go to,
If you want to see how we stack up against the other Regions, please go to,
Please note that most of the Regions outside of 1 - 6 recognize the
importance of the Senior Member status and have already met their
goals. Let's show them what we can do.
2002 Year end Membership Renewals
Please remind your local membership that renewals for 2003 are due
now. These renewals are important not only for the financial reasons, they
are important as a means of updating the IEEE database of who and where we
are. Encourage your members to not only renew but request a IEEE email
alias and include detail on work and home addresses. You can renew by
going to the following URL,
Membership Development at the Section
Now is also the time to identify your local Membership Development
resource. Please include this resource on your forms to RAB so I can stay
in touch with them. IEEE has made it easier to find Membership information
on the main IEEE web site. A menu of key Membership links can be found at,
Please use these links for fast access to Membership information. You can
also order Membership materials through these links. For any and all other
Region 3 Membership Development needs, you can always contact me.
