R5 Business Meeting

IEEE Region 5 Annual Business Meeting

Welcome to the 2013 Region 5 annual meeting being held in Denver.  Each year the region holds an annual meeting to conduct region business such as approving the Executive Committee roster, annual budget, and other required business.  All 26 sections in the region are invited to send a voting representative and participate in information and training activities.  The Region 5 annual awards are also presented and the meeting is held in conjunction with the Region 5 annual student competitions.

The Region exists to make sections more successful, provide resources beyond basic section funding, link to IEEE and IEEE-USA support, share best practices, provide training, and open channels to new ideas that provide increased value to members.

The annual meeting is structured to accomplish this and to provide a feedback forum for sections to express their highest priority needs.

In 2013, we have also added an additional training session on Sunday morning to provide sections with information on ways to be more effective and to create more member value opportunities.

General regional information can be found on the region website and more detailed information can be found by registering at the region community site

Our goal is 100% participation by the sections and expectation that each section representative will take away at least 2 new ideas to implement, each R5 Executive Committee member will identify at least 3 new section contacts to work with, and each section will nominate at least 1 new member to become more active in the region.

Look forward to seeing you in Denver.

Region 5 Director
