Mounira Maazaoui, The IEEE ENIT SB's Chair has just been selected for the Larry K. Wilson Regional Student Activities Award for the year 2008, and that's for the whole Region 8. Results have been announced during the IEEE Region 8 Student Branch and GOLD Congress in London, UK (August 28th to October 1st 2008)
The news in the IEEE Region 8 Student Activities Committee (SAC) website: link.
Following is an excerpt of Mounria IEEE-related biography:
2006: Communication Committee
2007: Branch’s Vice-Chair
2008: Branch’s Chair
Mounira is known as the IEEE first personality in the School. She is one of the first student members of the branch, and since that time, “Mounira has been a driving force behind the Branch” Professor Jelel Ezzine, Artificial Intelligence lecturer and the Branch’s Counselor confirms, “She has been motivating her executive team while trying to enhance membership in numbers and activities”.

One of the first activities of our outstanding member was organizing visits to the second phase of the “World Summit of the Information Society” held in Tunis, late 2005 to an IEEE International Conference in Gammarth – Tunisia.
Mounira is a proactive leader, participating to events as a watcher was just a first step to introduce members to the world of Research and Technology, She immediately organized with other executives a “Robot contest”, I haven’t pictures, but productions were very creative and the impact on students was unforgettable.
Mounira is leading executives with an inexhaustible
Energy and Dynamism (even faster than my Digital Camera sensors!)
Smart and diplomatic, Mounira is always finding arrangements for the branch’s issues (Like the kind access to the U2S-lab reading room for meetings thanks to Professor Meriem Jaïdane, himself author and co-author of multiple IEEE papers – Signal Processing).
Late 2007, after a year without any official registered member from the branch due to lack of possibilities regarding fees transfer (fees were collected but non transferred), former executives are trying to hide themselves to avoid incomprehensive members and to avoid also board’s responsibilities, she was the only person who didn’t gave-up: first of all, he built a small team from old executives to solve old problems (Registration fees transfer, Old funds accounts, Convincing members that the membership problem was out of our reach,…). Then, she concentrated on the new board, who will introduce IEEE to the new students and who will arrange their memberships and their activities through the year 2008.
Therefore, is also important to note that Mounira took over the executive committee during difficult times and while membership was falling. With her social skills and team work capabilities she was able to rekindle the interest of the members and give our branch a second chance.
Currently, the Branch is “on rails” thanks to the efforts of the new board but also to all motivation brought to them by our lovely Chair:
