Minnesota Meets Hawaii at First Joint Region Opcom – January 23-25
In January, leaders across two regions worked together on a variety of issues of interest to members. The first-ever joint meeting brought out new President-Elect Barry Shoop and both 2016 IEEE president-elect candidates, both IEEE-USA president-elect candidates, along with leadership from across 17 states. Outcomes and presentations are available at http://www.ieee-region6.org/category/region-meetings/.
Thanks to the creativity and showmanship of Region 6 Director Tom Coughlin, leaders of both regions are now sporting one of two IEEE Region 6 Hawaiian shirts — In the picture below, everyone is wearing an IEEE shirt: Region 6 Past Director Mike Andrews is seen sporting one IEEE R6 Hawaiian shirt and San Diego Section Chair Upkar Dhaliwal is wearing the other in this picture showing the UCSD student branch award.
