My principle accomplishment in the IEEE has been to build a stronger and more effective organization. I addressed and improved the vitality of organizational units, boards, committees/sub-committees within the IEEE and in the IEEE Computer Society. I brought contentious boards together, developed ways of recruiting new volunteers, and promoted the Society to practitioners and academics. I have served as your society president, technical activities and conferences vice-president, standards boards, and as your current Division XIII Director.
To the IEEE, I used my 20+ years of industry leadership experience to bring volunteers together, help them make sound judgments and plans for the future, while strengthening the IEEE structure. I have resolved contentions among different parts of the IEEE and helped operating units be successful.
I have been particularly effective in communicating with volunteers and helping them understand IEEE’s purpose and benefits. I have been successful in helping members understand the value of the Society and the Institute, its goals, policy, organizational design, project plans, budgets, measures, assessments, improvement plans, and leadership.
