Cleveland GiveCamp

The IEEE Cleveland Section Sponsored Cleveland GiveCamp and many members joined the event to help code. Description of event - http://clevelandgivecamp.org/Home/About

Article writeup from Cleveland Plain Dealer with mention of IEEE -http://blog.cleveland.com/metro/2010/06/cleveland_software_firm_holdin.html

The Cleveland Section worked closely with all of the people mentioned in the article to help pull the event off.

Another GiveCamp is already being planned for 2011.

Other Values for Members

The IEEE Cleveland Section obtained "Preferred Partner" status with Quicken Loans Arena, which allows us to provide exclusive ticket deals to our members for sporting events and concerts (great response from members during Cavaliers playoff run last year).

Some of our societies co-organized a golf event on September 16, 2010 (it rained too).

ieee columbus section1
IEEE Columbus Section

IEEE Graduate Student Branch GOALs

Provide an informal setting to:

Encourage participation in IEEE

Build Networks / Connections to the EE profession

Share, Exchange, Develop Ideas

Grow Technically and Professionally

Mentor and provide tutorials to Undergraduate Students

14

IEEE Graduate Student Branch

Three Areas of Focus:

First Year Graduate Students

Research and work with IEEE Society Chapters

Industry Experience and Networking (especially for the non-thesis Masters Degree Students)

15

ieee columbus section3
IEEE Columbus Section

IEEE Graduate Student Branch

Greater than 50 % of Graduate Students are International Students

Need Region 2 and Region 2 Director Support with Petition to form the Ohio State University IEEE Graduate Student Branch and their activities

Are there any other IEEE Graduate Student Branches ?

16

IEEE Online Virtual Student Branch Formation

There are 3000 online students in Engineering at DeVry University

Hosted by IEEE Region 2 and the DeVry University Columbus Campus

Advisor: Professor John Golzy, P.E.

Is IEEE HQ and IEEE Region 2 looking into how the Online Virtual Student Branch can be Formed ?

ieee columbus section7
IEEE Columbus Section

Planning a Student Research Conference for Spring 2011 at The Ohio State University

Students in the IEEE Columbus Section can present their Research or Senior Project

ieee columbus section8
IEEE Columbus Section

ISSUES:

E-Notice Usage Limitation

IEEE HQ now limits the Section and its Society Chapters to 1 E-Notice per Week

Members prefer 1 message per activity for brevity and so they see it (versus being buried in a large E-Notice Message)

Events happen at different times and difficult to coordinate everything ahead of time into 1 E-Notice Message

Section Officers and Society Chairs could send out 1 E-Notice for their respective activity and use up the E-Notice availability for 1 week without the others being aware of this

21

Sep 26, 2010

ieee columbus section9
IEEE Columbus Section

ISSUES:

E-Notice Usage Limitation (Cont'd)

Also, some members aren't reading their IEEE E-Notices now so a better heading to attract their attention is needed

What are our Options ?

Does vTools Support Sending out Meeting Notices (without requiring a meeting to be set up formally in vtools) ? Does vTools support Section members E-mail List ?

The IEEE Columbus Section web hosting services supports 3 options but there is a cost. Users can manage the Section and Society notices that they would receive.

22

Sep 26, 2010

ieee columbus section10
IEEE Columbus Section

ISSUES:

2. vTools Meeting Activity System Database Issues

If one makes a mistake on a Meeting Form you can't go back and correct it.

What are our Options ?

If you query 2010 IEEE Columbus Meetings you find 83 Meeting Records but only 3 of 8 PES Meetings are listed. Are records lost or not being selected for some reason ?

However, if you query PE31 (for PES) and IEEE Columbus Section it shows all 8 PES Meetings.

If IEEE (or someone) would query 2010 IEEE Columbus Meetings they would not pick up all of the activity. Would this affect the Section Rebate Amount ?
