Candidate for 2013 IEEE-USA President-Elect
IEEE-USA is an organizational unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. created in 1973 to support the career and public policy interests of IEEE's U.S. members. IEEE-USA is primarily supported by an annual assessment paid by U.S. IEEE members.
IEEE-USA's mission, as outlined in the IEEE Bylaws, is to recommend policies and implement programs specifically intended to serve and benefit the members, the profession, and the public in the United States in appropriate professional areas of economic, ethical, legislative, social and technology policy concern.
Our vision is to serve the IEEE U.S. member by being the technical professional's best resource for achieving life long career vitality and by providing an effective voice on policies that promote U.S. prosperity.
Since 1973, IEEE-USA has been in the forefront of initiatives that have represented our profession in Washington and provided support for the careers of electrical engineers like you and me. I'm proud to have been a part of these activities in meetings with members of Congress on the Hill in Washington and with IEEE members as I taught important career skills that have made a difference in the lives of my fellow engineers. There is no other function of the IEEE or outside organization that has the responsibility to provide this important support.
Today, IEEE-USA is at risk because of declining membership in Regions 1-6. We need a growing base of membership and the associated assessments to provide the financial foundation for a strong and responsive organization.
If elected, my goals are
We have challenges here in IEEE-USA. Global competition has never been stronger. The economy still has not recovered from the Recession. But if we can work together as a team and set our goals, we can build new levels of achievement that can benefit our careers and our country.
I’m looking forward to the opportunity to help build the new IEEE-USA. I would like to ask for your support and vote.

My qualifications for the position of President Elect, IEEE-USA include
I have a long background in developing Professional Activities. Through the Professional Activity programs that I developed for Region 3 and IEEE-USA, many IEEE Members have the soft skills that help distinguish and expand their careers.
I have also been active in developing Employment Assistance programs. Two of my projects have been the development of the Region 3 Employment Assistance web site and the Metro Area Workshops that provide direct assistance to members.
Membership Development is important to the future of the IEEE. My grassroots effort has developed new resources and is building the team that will help engineers better understand the value of IEEE membership and promote the overall growth of the IEEE. Today’s record overall membership level is the result of this foundation work that was done by volunteers and staff in recent years. We must continue this effort and grow the membership in IEEE-USA.
Today I am active in the Smart Grid Initiative and the Transportation Electrification Initiative. Both Initiatives as they develop will create new career opportunities for electrical and computer engineers in Regions 1-6.
