Search for 2011 Section Officers
The Orlando Section elects officers for a term of one year beginning January 1st. This year's Nomination Committee formed by Mr. Jorge Medina  , Mr. George McClure  , and Dr. Michael Hassan   , will be accepting nominations for Section Officers (Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary and Treasurer). Nominations must be submitted in writing to the Nominations Committee on or before October 5th, 2010.
 
The Section membership may make a nomination for new Section Officers by submitting qualify petitions. A qualify petition shall meet the following criteria:
  • Specify the office.
  • Bear the signature of at least 15 voting Section members.
  • Contain statement of the nominee's consent to serve.
  • State nominee's qualification and biography.
  • Be delivered to the Section Nominations Committee on or before October 5th, 2010 by 5:00 PM.
Volunteer Needed for Employment Coordinator Position
Basically, the vision for the IEEE Orlando Section Employment Coordinator (EC) is that he/she is a person motivated to help local members with career development activities. As an example, the EC would be the person to attend the Region 3 Fall meeting and go to the planned “train the trainer” and career workshop sessions. That person would then return to the home Section and facilitate local Section career development meetings, using the material and experience from the Region meeting. The EC would also learn about all of the career development and employment assistance services and products that IEEE, IEEE-USA, etc have available, and be willing and able to help local Section members take advantage of the services. The exact duties and responsibilities would really be driven by what the Orlando Section members want/need – it may be holding regular local workshops/networking meetings, or providing some one-on-one help to a member. The key is for the selected EC to be enthusiastic about career development activities. For further information, send email to IEEE Orlando Section Chair: Donghui Wu
