The new team of office bearers has assumed the office of IEEE Kerala Section on 13th January 2018. It is a challenging responsibility entrusted upon the new team to lead one of the most vibrant IEEE sections across the globe, having 2 subsections, 4 affinity groups and 11 society chapters.

At the outset I am delighted to inform you that Kerala Section has won bidding to host two flagship events of IEEE; The International Leadership Summit of Women in Engineering (WIE-ILS) on September 2018 and the Region-10 International Conference TENCON in 2019. The 4th edition of the flagship conference of IEEE Kerala Section, RAICS will also be held on December 2018. You will be receiving the details soon from the respective organizing teams. Our student branch count has reached 91 in 2018. It is heartening to note that student branch chapters of many IEEE societies are actively formed in many of the SBs.

The section level officer bearers of society chapters have started their activities to serve the respective communities. The Section website is being revamped to reflect the recent updates on activities happening across the state. Please feel free to write to me and my team your suggestions for improving the activities, reach, membership retention and growth rate of the Section, as well as the Section website. Your active participation is asking for Section and Subsection programs. Altogether, we hope to have an exciting time with many avenues for professional enrichments.
