April 9, 20058 Conclusions and Recommendations (1) Sections should provide assessments of areas needing most support from directors (2) Sections should be able to coordinate more closely with Region level counterparts (3) Sections should provide a strategic 5 year plan for each area of operation (4) Section should improve chapter officers succession plan and not wait until officers disappear (5) The south area sections are well managed
April 9, 20059 Summary of Area Chairman’s Duties (1) Help authoritatively documenting and posting those responsibilities -- developing products like the IEEE job descriptions for selected Section and Chapter positions (2) Nominally, an Area Chair will communicate, coordinate, and guide leaders of those Sections within his or her assigned geographic area. (3) Area Chairs would also periodically provide state of the health inputs to the Region’s Executive Committee (EXCOM), somewhat redundantly, working with the Regional Chapter Representative to support and monitor the activity and health of Technical Society Chapters, who separately report that information to the Region EXCOM and Regional Committee. (4) The RAB Operations Manual states "The Area Chair acts on behalf of and at the direction of the Regional Director on specific assignments related to the management and administration of the Region." Bottom line... Area Chairs support the Section Chairmen in there area.
