What do past attendees think about the Metro Area Workshop series?

"This was one of the best investments that I have made in my professional life. Thank you for making this opportunity available for me."

"Events like this significantly increase the value of IEEE membership."

"My interest in IEEE is rekindled. For me the IEEE has struck a note by focusing on the need for reputable and affordable resources for career and skill development and training. This is not available through our employers. And going back to school for graduate or post-grad education is not feasible in terms of money or time."

"I was very impressed with the instructors. They seemed to enjoy being there and really stressed that IEEE's goal is to serve its members. They were very approachable and seemed to be interested in speaking with you."

"Thanks for your efforts. It was a successful event to meet my needs. I hope there will be another event pretty soon."

"I was very pleased with the quality of the material and professionalism exhibited by IEEE at the workshop. Well done."

"Best thing I've ever gotten out of IEEE!"

"The topics were quite well chosen... It is all of the stuff that I see on job descriptions."

"The workshop was a rewarding opportunity to stay current, as a semi-retired R&D manager of EEs, computer scientists, and human factors engineers."
