Sep 26, IEEE Cleveland Section Cleveland GiveCamp The IEEE Cleveland Section Sponsored Cleveland GiveCamp and many members joined the event to help code. Description of event - Article writeup from Cleveland Plain Dealer with mention of IEEE - The Cleveland Section worked closely with all of the people mentioned in the article to help pull the event off. Another GiveCamp is already being planned for 2011.
Sep 26, IEEE Cleveland Section Other Values for Members The IEEE Cleveland Section obtained "Preferred Partner" status with Quicken Loans Arena, which allows us to provide exclusive ticket deals to our members for sporting events and concerts (great response from members during Cavaliers playoff run last year). Some of our societies co-organized a golf event on September 16, 2010 (it rained too).
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section IEEE Graduate Student Branch Formation – At Ohio State University – Advisor: Dr. Paul Berger – 150 Graduate Student Members – Core Group of 15 – 30 – 40 Grad Students interested in forming a Graduate Student Branch

Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section IEEE Graduate Student Branch – Three Areas of Focus: First Year Graduate Students Research and work with IEEE Society Chapters Industry Experience and Networking (especially for the non-thesis Masters Degree Students)
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section IEEE Graduate Student Branch – Greater than 50 % of Graduate Students are International Students – Need Region 2 and Region 2 Director Support with Petition to form the Ohio State University IEEE Graduate Student Branch and their activities – Are there any other IEEE Graduate Student Branches ?
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section IEEE Online Virtual Student Branch Formation – There are 3000 online students in Engineering at DeVry University – Hosted by IEEE Region 2 and the DeVry University Columbus Campus – Advisor: Professor John Golzy, P.E. – Is IEEE HQ and IEEE Region 2 looking into how the Online Virtual Student Branch can be Formed ?
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section 20 MAY 2010 IEEE Columbus Section Spring Banquet – Dr. Ralph Ford was the keynote Speaker and presented IEEE Membership and Benefits: Rocket Fuel for your Career – Murty Polavarapu and Parviz Famouri attended – Recognized 3 new IEEE Fellows – Recognized 2 students each from the 4 IEEE Student Branches for Academic Achievement and Contributions to the Profession
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section 23 SEP 2010 IEEE Columbus Section Meeting held at Zane State College in Zanesville, OH to meet with 2 Faculty Advisors and Student Branch Officers and Students. Also, a tour of their Laboratories was provided. 15 OCT 2010 Joint IEEE GOLD and OSU IEEE Student Branch Fall Picnic – Networking and Rejuvenate the IEEE GOLD Affinity Group.

Senior Member Drive being planned 31 OCT 2010 IEEE Columbus Section Picnic to encourage Membership and to Thank Past Conference Volunteers Section Elections (NOV – DEC 2010)
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section Planning a Student Research Conference for Spring 2011 at The Ohio State University – Students in the IEEE Columbus Section can present their Research or Senior Project Planning the 2011 IEEE Columbus Section Spring Banquet – Location being determined (Franklin Park Conservatory or The River Club Restaurant) – Any Speaker Ideas ?
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section ISSUES: 1.E-Notice Usage Limitation a)IEEE HQ now limits the Section and its Society Chapters to 1 E-Notice per Week b)Members prefer 1 message per activity for brevity and so they see it (versus being buried in a large E-Notice Message) c)Events happen at different times and difficult to coordinate everything ahead of time into 1 E-Notice Message d)Section Officers and Society Chairs could send out 1 E-Notice for their respective activity and use up the E-Notice availability for 1 week without the others being aware of this
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section ISSUES: 1.E-Notice Usage Limitation (Cont'd) a)Also, some members aren't reading their IEEE E-Notices now so a better heading to attract their attention is needed b)What are our Options ? c)Does vTools Support Sending out Meeting Notices (without requiring a meeting to be set up formally in vtools) ? Does vTools support Section members List ? d)The IEEE Columbus Section web hosting services supports 3 options but there is a cost. Users can manage the Section and Society notices that they would receive.
Sep 26, IEEE Columbus Section ISSUES: 2. vTools Meeting Activity System Database Issues a)If one makes a mistake on a Meeting Form you can't go back and correct it. b)What are our Options ? c)If you query 2010 IEEE Columbus Meetings you find 83 Meeting Records but only 3 of 8 PES Meetings are listed. Are records lost or not being selected for some reason ? d)However, if you query PE31 (for PES) and IEEE Columbus Section it shows all 8 PES Meetings. e)If IEEE (or someone) would query 2010 IEEE Columbus Meetings they would not pick up all of the activity. Would this affect the Section Rebate Amount ?
