The Executive Committee of the Cincinnati Section met on Oct 18. During that meeting, we voted to authorize the creation of an EMBS (Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society) Chapter. There are about 25 EMBS members in our Section, and soon they will be holding their own special interest meetings. We plan to occassionally have a joint meeting of the Chapter and the Section so that all members can share in this exciting area.

A big “Thank You” to FKI Logistex. The tour of their new Technology and Education Center on Oct 25 was fantastic! About 15 members, as well as 8 students from the College of Applied Science, took part in the tour and saw demonstrations of storage and retrieval systems, conveyors, sorters and merges.

Our next Section Meeting will be held at Raffle’s on Dec 6. The dinner meeting includes a presentation by The Cincinnati Linux User’s Group (CLUG). More details to follow.
