Volunteers Needed

The election of the Section officers for 2023 has been delayed.  The Executive Committee is still searching for candidates who wish to be on the ballot.  Ideally, we would like at least two candidates for each office  – Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer.  If you would like to be on the ballot for one of the offices, please send a note to Mike Simpson, mike_simpson@ieee.org.

March Meeting : ISU Student Innovation Center

This is an `in person’ meeting and will be a joint meeting with the Engineers Club of Des Moines.  Hope to see you there.

Tour –

The Student Innovation Center is a hands-on facility for Iowa State students of all programs and majors. It is a collaborative facility that provides a unique, state-of-the-art space for students to try their hand designing, fabricating, testing, and demonstrating ideas for everything from culinary to lunar to digital gaming to vehicles. The facility includes exhibit space, metal and wood shops, 3D printing space, print and supplies shops, and office space for student organizations.  The Center opened in fall 2020.  Our tour will be led by student volunteers.

Future and Other Meetings:

A very preliminary plan for springtime could be (by one of our members): Building and flying my plane, we could possibly use a meeting room at the airport then go to my hangar to see it. More about this later if we can get this put together.

Do you have meeting ideas ?
