SoutheastCon 2017 Region 3 Committee Meeting Presentations

Presentations at SoutheastCon 2017, the IEEE Region 3 Annual Meeting held in Charlotte, NC.  This compilation was derived from the many presentation sets supplied by the speakers and assembled for the record by Chase Battaglio, Region 3 Secretary.

This page should be browsed end-to-end as a virtual meeting to give an idea of all the thought and effort behind your local IEEE organizations.  Region 3 is comprised of 41 Sections organized in 9 Areas (collections of contiguous Sections facilitating the interface with Region 3), numerous Councils (collections of contiguous Sections, not necessarily in Region 3, facilitating joint quasi-local events), Technical Chapters, Affinity Groups (presently Consultants Network, Life Members, Women-in-Engineering and Young Professionals) and Student Branches, reaching from Indiana to Jamaica.  GET INVOLVED and GET AHEAD!  Don’t miss out–this is the “Mother of All Career Networking Opportunities!”)
