Help Desk for ExCom Meeting

It is hoped that most problems associated with e-conferencing can be worked out ahead of time by members trying out their software and connections, reading the guidelines, and participating in one or more of the planned meetings prior to the 3 November / 5 November ExCom Meeting. A "cheat sheet" for configuring the clients: mIRC32 from our SPC.

During the meetings, members of the e-conference team will be available to assist EXCOM members who are experiencing problems. Depending on the severity of your problem, use the following schemes to contact someone for help:

  1. Query/Whisper to one of the team members for help
  2. Ask a question in the #ieee3-hallway room
  3. Ask a question on the backup server channel/room: #ieee3.
  4. E-mail your question to the e-conference team at
  5. Help contacts:


Meals, etc.

Be sure to network with other Region 3 volunteers during these times.

Region 3 volunteers have all meals (Friday dinner through Sunday lunch) as part of program.

Spouses are invited to Friday and Saturday dinners and to a separate lunch on Sunday.

The Chattanooga Boardroom is available as a Spouses' Hospitality Room on Saturday and Sunday during the meetings.
