Plan on attending our June 8 IEEE CN meeting. It should be a fascinating look at DIY and 3D printing. Thanks to our wonderful member Steve Ruzic for arranging the program. Here are the particulars:

Speaker:   Bob Pospick, Avazzia, Operations manager for product manufacturing

Topic: Lessons learned from the 3D printing newbie

Program Description:   Bob Pospick will show us his new Prusa 3D printer that he build from a kit. Kit printers are very affordable and can be satisfying for the do-it-yourself types. Bob will discuss why he chose the model, what it took to assemble and get the printer going, the software he uses, and show some of the parts that he has printed.

BIO:  Bob Pospick is an avid hobbyist that enjoys woodworking, programming micro-controllers, robotics, and now 3D printing. He was formally a mechanical engineering manager and product manager at Texas instruments for the consumer products group where he designed education products, organizers, and calculators. Now with Avazzia, he is the operations manager for product manufacturing where he oversees contract manufacturing and quality control for FDA cleared electronic pain relief products.

“See” you in June!

Speaker:      Elizabeth Lions

Topic: Jumpstart your Job Search and Maintain your Career Pursuing During this Crisis

Program: During the past few weeks the Coronavirus (Covid-19) has brought the American economy to a virtual standstill. With the economy halted there has been major job loss in a number of fields including engineering. IEEE-USA has invited Elizabeth Lions, Author, Human Resources Professional and Executive Career Coach, to discuss what people can do right now if they’ve lost their job due to this worldwide pandemic. Ms. Lions will give us tips on how to interview virtually, how to continue job searching now so you can find opportunities and still practice social distancing. Join us for this webinar on the Five Things Successful Job Seekers Need in 2020.

Stay safe!

Our March 9 program (6.15pm at Rockfish Grill at Campbell/Coit) should be very interesting. Thanks to Steve Ruzic for finding our speaker who is from NPI Technologies in Richardson Texas.

Come on March 9 and meet other IEEE members and learn more about Contract Manufacturing.
