What Is? Region 3 BBS The Region 3 Bulletin Board System makes information available to our members who have a computer and a modem, but not e-mail or internet access. It includes Institute and Region information. Awards manuals, newsletters, alerts, IEEE- USA/USAB releases, etc. The biggest draw is the employment section. In addition to downloading the USAB job postings, there are many other Region 3 employment opportunity listings. In the fourth quarter of 1995, the Region mailed 2000 letters to employers of engineers in the Southeast, inviting them to post the job openings on the BBS free of charge. Use your modem to call 1-800-555-REG3 (1-800-555-7343). At your first access you will be asked for material to verify membership then assigned a password and ID for future use. The system is menu driven and can get complicated but a (very lengthy and complete) instruction manual is available (on-line) and can be found with a little persistence and downloaded in whole or part. It runs to about 25 pages in a 10 point font. I found the system to be rather unfriendly and difficult, but Vern Powers, project Sysop, indicated I may have had some local software problems. In any case, give it a try, there is a lot of stuff available there.
