Activity highlights from this year's award recipients

The IEEE Santa Clara Valley Section (R6) is engaged with over 30 companies as part of their Corporate Liaison Program that promotes the IEEE initiative to engage the industrial community within which members work. Also, the Member Development Committee Chair held a New Members Welcome event, IEEE Day October 2015, and also led a phone campaign to contact members in arrears.

The IEEE Argentina Section (R9) is actively involved in many community service projects, such as SIGHT activities involving a number of people of non-IEEE organizations worldwide working on three projects: BIOTECH (autism diagnose and treatment), ARA (augmented reality for autism) and HOLOTECH (visual extension for blind people). The Section also interacted with various Argentinean government instances and has a number of signed ‘cooperation agreements’ (MOUs) with universities and other organizations, as a starting point to work together.
