The 2011 legislative session is about half over, making now a good time to stop and see what the 112th Congress has been up to. Congress has been focused on dozens of issues that could affect IEEE members: everything from nuclear power and NASA to K-12 science education and funding for start-up companies.? Join IEEE-USAâ??s Senior Legislative? Representative for grassroots activities Russ Harrison in a discussion about public policy and its implications for engineers.? Weâ??ll discuss what IEEE-USA is doing in Washington, what Washington is trying to do to you, and most importantly, what you can do about it.
This will be a free-flowing discussion about policy and politics led by one of IEEEâ??s most popular speakers.? We all know how much government actions affect us and our profession.? After this session, you will know what Congress is up to and have a better idea of what you can do about it.
