I am grateful to the IEEE Islamabad Section Executive Committee members for reposing their confidence in entrusting responsibilities of the Chairman IEEE Islamabad Section in the Ex Com Meet held in April 2014.
IEEE Islamabad Section is one of the prominent small sections not only in Pakistan but also in the Region. IEEE Islamabad Section with 12 Student Chapters and 08 Technical Societies have contributed in promoting IEEE cause with valuable progress in organizing meetings, discussions and seminars. I personally invite the attention of all the members to organize activities related to societal missions, rural development and uplift of the poor through technology, ubiquitous health care, disaster management and sustainability.
IEEE membership provides learning endeavor beyond the institution boundaries to become a lifelong learner with various forums and networking of professional interest besides other numerous benefits. It provides new resources, valuable opportunities and many discounts that help a volunteer advancing career in the right direction. We have to continuously remain in progress both in terms of membership in numbers and its quality by way of Senior & Fellow membership. Our membership is comparatively low, further it has been seen that membership is not renewed by many members. I request all these members to take the help of online renewal of the membership through internet.
IEEE specially encourages women in engineer through affinity group-Women in Engineer (WIE). WIE is promoting women engineers and scientists to empower women worldwide so that can contribute in the society in an effective way. I invite women engineers to become a part of WIE for the better world of tomorrow.
It is very heartening to mentioning that IEEE Islamabad Section has been declared a distinguished Small Section in Region 10. This is because of the efforts carried out by the volunteers of Section and their contribution in respective domain – Congratulation to all the members.
I am confident that IEEE Islamabad Section will continue marching forward with the same zeal and dedication to contribute in the uplift of the society.
Looking forward to your cooperation and encouragement.
With warm regards,
Prof. Dr. Aftab Maroof
