February 2017 Newsletter

A word from our newly-elected 2017 Chair, Robert Berry


Welcome to 2017 everyone! I know it’s already the end of February, but here at the Young Professionals of IEEE Dallas, we’re just getting started to what is sure to be an exciting year of events.

I am proud to be serving as your Chair, and we have a new Vice Chair and leadership team of Officers in place as of a few weeks ago.We’ll be introducing our new Vice Chair and team in March, so look for that in next month’s newsletter.

As your Chair, one main goal I want for our Affinity Group to focus on is to “become the next generation of technology leaders”.

To become leaders, we need to stay engaged socially and technically with our engineering peers, and here at YP, we will provide lots of opportunities for that. I look forward to seeing you at our events.”
