IEEE Atlanta Section ComSoc Chapter is Striving to Add Value to Your Membership Experience

By Tamseel Mahmood Syed - IEEE ComSoc Atlanta Chapter Chair, IEEE Atlanta Section Vice Chair, USA

As the chair for IEEE Atlanta ComSoc chapter, it gives me great joy to write this update on the recent and upcoming activities of our chapter. Since my last update in the GCN article titled “The IEEE ComSoc Atlanta Chapter Offering Virtual Solutions to Help Its Members,” the Atlanta ComSoc chapter has offered numerous virtual events that saw good attendance and revived interest. Some of the events were attended by more than 100 participants. Some events also offered the option to obtain professional development hours (PDH)/Continuing Education (CeU) credits which was popular amongst certain attendees. I encourage all the chapter chairs to consider applying for your future events to be eligible for offering PDH/CeU.
