My IEEE experience as a leader within the IEEE BOD , IEEE CS BOG, and IEEE Technical Activities in many roles and responsibilities demonstrates a consistent record of leadership, integrity, ethics, collaboration, diversity and inclusion. In order to be an effective Division Director for the IEEE CS, it is very important to have a thorough and working knowledge of the CS as an organization. I have been a dedicated CS volunteer for almost 40 years working as a volunteer at all levels of the CS. I have served six terms as a member of the CS BOG. As a Division Director it is equally as important to have a working knowledge of IEEE Technical Activities (TA), its structure and associated Societies and Councils. I have this knowledge having served as a previous Council President , TA Board (TAB) and current IEEE Director, Division VIII.
It is imperative that the IEEE CS emplace experienced volunteers, volunteers who understand the IEEE policies and network during this critical time of recovery to help ensure that items of importance are socialized and expedited when required.
All of these senior leadership positions have all enriched my knowledge, understanding and network of contacts to best position me in furthering the IEEE (CS) mission and service to its members.
