IEEE Central Texas Section Special Topic for September The IEEE Future Cities Competition Presented by Joules Webb The competition is for 6 th to 8 th grade students. The Central Texas Competition will be held at Texas State University on Saturday, January 19, 2013. The competitors, working in teams, will be using computer simulation, scale modeling, writing, and presentation skills to do their work. This competition offers engineer's seeking a worthwhile means of contributing to future scientific minds an excellent opportunity to volunteer as mentors and judges. All are invited to attend this informative meeting and to consider their own personal participation.
IEEE Central Texas Section SWOT Analysis l Strengths: Monthly meetings are generally well organized and attended. This includes significant attendance by students. l Weaknesses: The core of members who show any interest in leadership is small. l Opportunities: Attract more students and professionals to attend the monthly meetings by recruiting high-quality speakers to present high-value programs. l Threats: Some members complained that the membership fee is getting very expensive. IEEE needs to address this issue. Otherwise, we may lose some volunteers in the future.
IEEE Central Texas Section Chapter Plans / Issues l We plan to host three technical meetings in the coming fall and five technical meetings in the spring of 2013. l We will evaluate how well our plan to have dinner in the St. Mary’s Cafeteria is working for our members. It will resolve our past problems with staying within our budget.
