PE CREDITS: Depending on the subject matter, attendance at IEEE Cincinnati Section Meetings now qualifies the attendee for Professional Development Hours towards renewal of Professional Engineers Licenses. Required documentation will be available following the meeting!  The Section Meetings also provide a great opportunity to network with fellow engineers in the area.

ABOUT THE MEETING:  This month’s meeting will feature a presentation by Carl Selinger of his toolbox for life – a collection of non-technical “real world” leadership skills including decision-making, setting priorities, negotiating, teamwork, running meetings, and better writing and speaking.  This presentation will be a one-hour version of his workshop. Mr. Selinger, in addition to presenting seminars on soft non-technical skills, is a contributing editor to Spectrum Magazine, an independent consultant in aviation, transportation planning and strategic business planning, and the author of the book “Stuff You Don’t Learn in Engineering School”, which is included with some workshop registrations.  The Section is encouraging everyone that attends to invite a young engineer to the meeting to help them with their career.

On October 17th, Carl will be giving a two-hour version of his “Stuff” talk in the College of Applied Science auditorium (Room 100) from noon to 2:00.  This program was arranged for the Student Branch of IEEE at the University of Cincinnati.  However, all are welcome to attend.  Please note that a decal is required to park in the UC parking lot during this event.

On October 18th, Mr. Selinger is presenting his full, six hour seminar at The College of Applied Science Auditorium, Classroom 100, which will provide six CPD credits for Ohio P.E.’s.  For details, go to the Section Web Page, https://ieeecincinnati.org/professional-development-workshop/
