From Brian’s Desk

Many thanks to Scott Holland for his excellent presentation “Function MRI of the Brain” at our March meeting.  Scott was introduced by David Pettigrew, the Chair of our new EMBS Chapter.  It was great to see many new faces at this meeting.  We hope to see you again this month, and for many meetings to come.

The Nominating Committee has been formed, and they are looking for members who wish to serve.  This fall we will be filling the following positions: Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, and Member-At-Large.  If you are interested in serving, please contact any of the current officers – their contact information is available on the Section Officers page.

The Section is interested in recognizing your contributions to the field of engineering.  If you have ten or more years of experience, we would like to recognize that fact by elevating your membership level to Senior Member.  The process is simple and costs your nothing but a little bit of time.  You receive a very nice plaque and a gift certificate from IEEE.  It has nothing to do with age, just experience.  If you are interested, please contact any of the officers.

The Executive Committee is organizing a workshop to be held October 18th that will provide six-hours of professional development.  This should be of interest to our members who are Professional Engineers.

Finally, I am looking forward to the meeting this month.   Professor Stever will be discussing the technologies employed in Homeland Security.  See you at Raffel’s on the 24th!
