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.
The year of 2021 was very challenging due to the sanitary conditions and the severe restrictions faced by citizens from all over the world. In-person events and lectures were cancelled with the objective of providing safety conditions to everyone.
In 2017, IEEE ComSoc Thailand launched the first dinner talk tracking back on a hundred years of Thai physics history and its brother, electrical engineering. From that successful beginning, a consequent event to promote human resource development and the policy & strategy alignment was then organized (online) on November 19, 2021. It was another time to fill local wide gap between physics and electrical engineering society. This event was also a part of 40th anniversary of IEEE Thailand section.
This article continues the series of nine interviews to the Officers of the IEEE ComSoc Member and Global Activities (MGA) Council, which is published every month on the Global Communications Newsletter.
