Message from previous Regional Student Activities Chair
The time has come for me to say Good-Bye to you as R-SAC for IEEE Canada.
As you may know all volunteer roles at IEEE are usually time limited. I cannot really believe it has been 3 year since I took on the R-SAC role for IEEE Canada, but it is a fact. It has been a great honor and privilege to work with all of you as the Regional Student Activities Committee chair for the past 3 years. You, your enthusiasm and your commitment have been a true inspiration. Thank You All Very Much!
Now it is another great honor for me to introduce your new R-SAC: Lori Hogan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I had the privilege of working with Lori when she was the Regional Student Representative for IEEE Canada in 2004. Then and now Lori is truly and totally committed to the cause of IEEE student members, IEEE Canada and “the big” IEEE.
Please help me welcome Lori Hogan!
Happy New Year 2015 - Good Health and Great Happiness to you all!
