IEEE Sri Lanka Section Congress is the largest gathering of IEEE members and volunteers within Sri Lanka. This year it was held at University of Sabaragamuwa from 22nd to 24th of December 2017. Student members from all student branches in Sri Lanka, Young Professionals, Women in Engineering and many IEEE volunteers gather to one place and this is the perfect opportunity to spread the word about IAS within Sri Lanka.
There are 10 main IEEE Student branch chapters in Sri Lanka. But only three of them have IAS established. In order to motivate the other student branches to join had with IAS, IAS in the University of Moratuwa organized an awareness session and distributed IAS newsletters within the student branches. This was done during the session tracks and we discussed the importance of becoming an IAS member, it’s vision, opportunities we got through IAS and we shared our experience as IAS members.
With this effort, we had a good opportunity to promote IAS within Sri Lanka.
