Dear IEEE Members,
On behalf of the pro tem executive members, I thank the IEEE Africa Council for given us the opportunity to serve as the Pro-Tem executives, starting from 2018. Firstly, I will like to thank all the members of IEEE in Africa and solicit for more support so that we can build a strong IEEE Council in Africa. This is because the IEEE Africa Council cannot succeed without vibrant members like you. The remarkable cooperation experience from all the Section Chairs in 2018 is commendable, more grease to your elbows in 2019.
You remember that we started to work as care taker executives last year. During this time, we have been trying to bond all the IEEE Sections and Sub-sections together so that we can achieve the objectives of the Council. In doing this, we have created a website for the Council. In addition to this, we are now live on various social media such as Facebook and Twitter. These platforms are yielding fruits already, as IEEE members across the African continent are networking among each other and are constantly updated on the happenings in IEEE globally.
This 2019, we are working hard to take the Council to a greater height. We will continue to make presence of IEEE known in the African continent. We cannot do this alone. We are hopeful that you will cooperate and work with us. Always feel free to visit the Council website: www.site.ieee.org/africa-council for upcoming events, interesting RSS feeds, EPICS and SIGHT projects in the Africa.
We will try our best to meet the expectations of IEEE members in Africa. Let us all work together to have another great year of IEEE activities in 2019.
Prof. Gloria Chukwudebe
