Call for IEEE Day Ambassadors

Dear IEEE Canada Colleagues,

As you may know, IEEE Day is celebrated worldwide to commemorate the first time in 1884 when engineers gathered to share their technical and scientific ideas. This year's celebrations will be held on October 3, with "Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow" as a theme.

IEEE has opened a Call for IEEE Day Ambassadors, ending July 15, 2017.

So far, we have three IEEE Day Ambassadors in R7: two individuals from the Montreal Section (Mohammad Taufiquzzamtn and Akashdeep Chauhann) and one from the Winnipeg Section (Dario Schor). We should have more.

It is a great opportunity to bring more awareness about IEEE to our universities, colleges, high schools, companies, organizations, military, government, and the general public.

You can get the details about IEEE Day on the IEEE Day website (IEEE Day website), and apply to be Ambassadors for their section by filling the Ambassadors form (
