12 New to SC11 – poster sessions We are soliciting ideas for posters to be of topics of interest to the membership in the theme of SC11 and other potential themes/examples: –Effective collaboration between section, society and Chapters –Humanitarian projects –Effective collaboration project between IEEE OUs. Call for poster abstract due 15 January 2011 Decisions on which posters (limited to 32) by 15 March 2011 12

13 Funding 1- The Region will fund 80% of reasonable expenses for Sections Congress 2011 attendance for a single section or subsection representative provided the SC-2011 attendee registers with IEEE for the Congress by the deadline and participates in the Region meetings at SC-2011. 2- The Region will pay an additional 10% of reasonable expenses as a bonus if the section or subsection participates in the Saturday, January 22, 2011 Region 4 web based meeting. 3- The Region will pay an additional 10% of reasonable expenses as a bonus if the section or subsection meets all IEEE reporting requirements by the IEEE bonus deadline of Friday, February 18, 2011. 13

14 Funding - Thus it is possible (and easy) for a section to fund 100% of their primary delegate expense for SC-2011 (IEEE pays for the registration fee for a section and the region for a subsection). Reasonable Expense is defined in the Region 4 travel policy on the Region 4 web site. 14
