Why I feel I am Qualified to Serve

During my years as a volunteer supporting the IEEE, I have been privileged to serve in several different areas, these range from society conference activities, publications, local chapter and region activities, Society President and Division Director and then as a member of various TAB and IEEE oversight committees.

This diverse set of volunteer experiences has provided me with visibility into the various dimensions of the IEEE and provided me with opportunities to view our organization from a variety of volunteer perspectives. While we are ‘One IEEE’, we are varied and one size does not necessarily fit all, we must remain agile and sensitive to all our constituencies and their unique needs.

I feel my experience uniquely qualifies me to understand the challenges and opportunities that exist within IEEE today.

As I have in the past, I will continue to support the description and launch of concrete initiatives that deliver measurable improvements.  I will work to define directions that enable collaboration, support interoperability, clarify our finances, strengthen our marketing, and sustain plans for future improvement.
