Congratulations to the following winners of 2016 IEEE Communications Society Chapter Awards!
Chapter-of-the-Year Award Winner
The winner is ... the Malaysia Chapter! This is no small achievement and we applaud the accomplishments that led to their being chosen from among all our ComSoc chapters worldwide. The Malaysia Chapter will receive a plaque/honorarium of $2000, and its chair will attend IEEE GLOBECOM in Washington, DC to be honored during the Awards Luncheon ceremony.
Chapter Achievement Award (CAA) Winners
For years the CAA has been and continues to be awarded to chapters that provide their members with high-level programs and activities. This year’s winning Chapter Achievement Award recipients are:
Asia/Pacific - Malaysia
EMEA - Romania
Latin America - Panama
North America - Ottawa
Each chapter recipient of the CAA receives a plaque and honorarium of $1000. Additionally, those chairs or representatives already planning to attend IEEE GLOBECOM will receive complimentary tickets to the Awards Luncheon and be recognized publicly for their chapter’s achievements.
How to become a winner?
To be considered for these awards, chapter chairs complete the yearly questionnaire which is e-mailed during the first quarter of each year--and which includes a section that provides the Council with information that is the basis for selecting our winners.
Please join us in congratulating these chapters for a “job well done” for the good of their local membership.
