My experience and knowledge of the Region enable me to represent the interests of R-10 to the IEEE board, and to IEEE at large. R-10 is fast growing and dynamic. The needs of our “giants” China and India need to be effectively presented to IEEE. We have many other countries that have their own specific needs, which also need to be supported. Over the years I built solid networks amongst the IEEE volunteer leaders and IEEE staff to effectively represent our region to all IEEE members and leadership.
I will work to promote inclusiveness of R-10 with all IEEE Societies and ensure MGA and TAB combine their efforts to improve services to members. I will engage with all members in R-10, from Students to Life members. In R-10 we need to reach out and get more women involved in our activities. I will work on providing more opportunities for career and personal development to our members, as well as training and professional-development opportunities to our members at large, and opportunities to volunteer.

IEEE is the world-leading technical institute formed by members and run by members. IEEE serves the community through advancing technology for humanity. Geographically, R10 covers the world’s majority population with a young demographic profile. Countries in this region are undergoing economic, social, and technological advancement, with new and exciting opportunities for members and numerous potential for IEEE.
I pledge to serve the region through 3R’s: Recruitment, Retention, and Rejuvenation. I will represent R10 and work with the IEEE Boards and Committees, Region Executive Committee and Sub-committees, Sections, Chapters, and affinity groups to maximize benefits and services for our members, opportunities for volunteers, prudent decisions on the operation, and efficient management of the Region finance.
If I earned your trust, I will devote my time and energy to the roles and responsibilities, with active participation and communication with members and volunteers. My 20 years' experience and dedication to IEEE have prepared me for the job as someone from R10, for R10, and at members’ service, for the advancement and benefits of IEEE Asia Pacific Region.
