Notable increases have occurred at the Student Member (+6), Graduate Student Member (+8), and Member (+4) grades, since the last reporting period.  The growth in Student and Graduate Student memberships is due to in-migration to the Orlando Section and the lingering effect of the student membership drive at UCF.

Over the 31 days, ending on December 22, 2009, 10 new IEEE members joined in the Orlando Section:  4 Members, 3 Student Members, 2 Graduate Student Members, and 1 Associate Member. See the attached list of new members in the Orlando Section.

Over the 31 days, ending on December 22, 2009, 8 active IEEE members moved into the Orlando Section:  5 Members, 2 Graduate Student Members, and 1 Student Member.  See the attached list of incoming existing members to the Orlando Section.

There was no Membership Development Conference Call in December 2009.  The next such webcast is scheduled for Saturday, January 16, 2010.

The Orlando Section is again reminded that the incentive program of Region 3 to increase higher-grade membership in all Sections will last over the 2010 recruitment year, ending August 31, 2010.  Each section will be given $5 for each new, not transferred, higher-grade member, who joins the section between September 1, 2009 and August 31, 2010.  


Current members at all grades are strongly encouraged to recruit new members at the higher grade.


AUTOTESTCON 2010 Conference Report :


Six or more volunteers from the IEEE Orlando Section are needed to participate in Registration tasks for AUTOTESTCON 2010 at the Marriott World Resort and Conference CenterSeptember 13-17, 2010.  Most importantly, these tasks include assembly of the registrants' bags on Saturday, September 11, 2010, and early registration during the afternoon of Sunday, September 12, 2010.  Volunteers must commit to serve this conference which historically has provided significant funding to the Orlando Section.  All volunteers will receive complementary access to the exhibit areas and the technical sessions.
