The 2016 Latin America Regional Chapter Chair Congress (LA-RCCC 2016) of the IEEE Communications Society was held in Medellin, Colombia on 14–15 November 2016, in conjunction with IEEE LATINCOM 2016.
The IEEE Ottawa ComSoc/CESoc/BTS Joint Chapter (http://www.ieeeottawa.ca/comsoc) is one of the most active chapters in R1-R10. This is the reason why the Chapter was selected from among all ComSoc chapters worldwide to be the winner of the 2010 ComSoc Chapter of the Year (2010 CoY), as well as the winner of the 2010 Communications Society Chapter Achievement Award (2010 CAA) in the North America Region (R1-R7).
This is the seventh article in the series started in November 2016 and published monthly in the IEEE ComSoc Global Communications Newsletter, which covers all areas of IEEE ComSoc Member and Global Activities. In this series of articles, I introduce the six MGA Directors (namely: Sister and Related Societies; Membership Services; AP, NA, LA, EMEA Regions) and the two Chairs of the Women in Communications Engineering (WICE) and Young Professionals (YP) Standing Committees. In each article, one by one they present their sector activities and plans.
