On-line (Zoom) meeting due to virus !

PowerFilm !

IEEE Headquarters has requested that all in-person IEEE activities be suspended

until the threat from the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic has subsided.

We do not feel that it is appropriate to meet face-to-face for a February Section meeting because of the

continuing coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. This month we are offering a virtual meeting using Zoom.

This will be a joint meeting with the Central Iowa Power and Energy Society.
