Forming a New Local Chapter: Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS)

The IEEE Orlando Section is forming a local chapter of the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS). From the TEMS IEEE description, "TEMS provides information and services to practitioners and researchers engaged in management sciences and practices required for defining, implementing, and managing engineering and technology. The fields of interest of TEMS includes: technology policy development, assessment, and transfer; issues related to the management of research, development, design, evaluation, production, and operations; innovation and entrepreneurship; program and project management; strategic management and strategic thinking and planning; education and training related to engineering and technology management; transitioning to management; and the socioeconomic impact of engineering and technology management.”
We plan to have at least four meetings per year with local executives, distinguished lecturers, and local technology-related tours. Please consider joining TEMS ($35/year for members) and let me know so we can include your name on the petition to establish a local chapter. We need at least twelve local members of the Orlando Section to express interest and join TEMS to form a Chapter.
Thank you.
Mike Orlovsky (, 407.909.0956).
