Chair’s Message, September 2023

Greetings and welcome back, Section Members, from the summer hiatus. I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer, spending time with family and friends. We’ve begun planning a full slate of upcoming events, such as the LICN Electronic Navigation Systems Before the GPS lecture on September 7th and our Annual Barbecue Picnic at Sunken Meadow State Park on September 9th. For more information and to register, please search for the keywords (LICN and picnic) in vTools.

Planning is already underway for the 2023 Power Electronics Symposium, which will be held on November 2nd. For more information, go to

Another significant action for the Section is electing the 2024 slate of Executive Committee officers. Our Junior Past Chair, Arnie Stillman, will chair the nominating committee and start the procedure. Self-nominations are acceptable, and there is no particular experience required for the offices. Please keep an eye out for the election process directives from Arnie.

We are very fortunate for all who volunteer to serve the Section, and I trust that everyone is ready to continue the mission of getting connected and involved.

Warm Regards,
Rhonda Green
2023 IEEE Long Island Section Chair
