Approval of Minutes of the Previous Region 10 Meeting Hidenori Nakazato Region 10 Secretary
Correction of Minutes 33. Executive Agenda, Lawrence Wong • The 2012 R10 budget was rectified at the session. • The enhancement to the OU petition procedures was also approved. • The change to R10 Bylaw for R10 to increase the number of petitioners for formation of chapter is not approved. A team was formed to improve the chances of chapter vitality after formation.
a. The 2012 R10 budget was rectified at the session. b. The IEEE Region 10 Nomination Committee recommended a revision to the Region 10 Bylaws. The revision is to dissolve the discrepancy of the number of petition signatures between the current Region 10 Bylaws and IEEE Constitution and Bylaws. Therefore, the amended bylaws governing the nomination and election of the R10 Direct-Elect read as follow: “IEEE Region 10 Bylaws 220.127.116.11 Nomination and Election of the Region 10 Director-Elect Individual members may, by petition, propose names of other eligible voting members to be added to the list of candidates for Region 10 Director-Elect. To be valid, such petition for Director-Elect must be signed by 600 eligible voting members plus 1% of the difference between 30,000 and the number of voting members eligible in Region10 as listed in the official IEEE membership records at the end of the preceding year. Such petition must also reach IEEE Headquarters no later than twelve o'clock noon, New York U.S.A. time, on the Friday preceding June 15 of the election year, accompanied by a signed statement from the petition candidate, indicating his/her willingness to serve if elected.”
c. The recommendation to increase the number of petition members for chapter formation is not supported. A team involving Deepak Mathur, James Wang, Borhan Ali, and two section chairs will be formed to continue the discussion. d. Arek Dadej, 2012 Australia Council Chair, represented the Section Chairs in Australia to present a statement of concern on a recent advice on a new reserve gain / loss process. The change is expected to negatively impact the growth and activity of geographic units in Australia and elsewhere. The change did not come with timely warning and adequate consultation with the membership. Such change should come with more communication and higher level of transparency. The management of reserves across the IEEE is an important matter that involves all units; hence if without wide involvement of members in such discussion, the outcome risked disaffection among the members.
Hence, a motion was presented and voted in favor by the section chairs: “We move that the R10 Director is given the responsibility to carry the above message to the MGA Board, with the view of reversing the current reserve sharing decision and replacing it with a decision that is adequately consulted with, and justified to, the R10 membership.” Malcolm Heron, North Australia Section Chair, in response to his and others’ experience in IEEE’s financial reporting system, raised a statement to the R10 committee: “That (a) IEEE headquarters be requested by Region 10 to withdraw and revise the new on-line financial reporting system; and (b) a revised date be set for operating units to submit financial reports for 2011 using L50 report forms.”
