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 very 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:
IEEE Central Texas Section Chapter Plans / Issues l We will hold an election this Spring for Officers to serve May 2013 to April 2014 l We will look into having a distinguished speaker. It would need to be a meeting that is joint with the section and other San Antonio Society chapters. l We will invite Bjarne Stroustrup for a special meeting (the last time he came it was the largest attendance we have ever had).
