Chapter Chairs and Treasurers: Please take note!

A primary goal is to approve the Central Texas budgets for all Central Texas Chapters and Affinity groups in the Treasurer’s Report. To do this we need to meet our 50% ExCom quorum, in person or on Zoom.  All CTS Chapters and  Affinity Groups chairs are members of ExCom – if the Chair cannot attend, another officer can attend in the Chair’s place! 

Please forward to your other officers to attend as well.

Student Branch and Branch Chapter Chairs are invited to discuss their activities and request funding

We have 29 members of the Executive Committee, so we need a quorum of 15 to pass the chapter and section budgets.

Last January – On Saturday, January 21st, IEEE Central Texas Section held its 2023 Winter Planning Meeting for the Executive and Section Committees 

The meeting was held In-Person in San Marcos as well as Virtual by Zoom, and those in-person benefited with breakfast Tacos and a full Barbecue lunch. 

EEE CTS held its biannual planning meeting on January 22nd. This was done in both on-site and virtual modes. About half the attendees came to TXState and half attended remotely. It was good to see folks in-person again and it was also good that we had such strong attendance by using in-person and remote participation. We had a quorum of the Executive Committee (which includes all the Chapter Chairs, so we accomplished approval the CTS Section budget for next year. The remote option is working well, there is planning in place to continue to be actively meeting in person.  CTS Officers, other volunteers, Chapter and Affinity Group Chairs, and student groups presented their statuses for 2022 as well as easy plans for next year any support needed. The presentations will beposted here on the CTS website, under CTS Documents – Planning Meeting Presentations.


We also had an active discussion on the new IEEE Concur expense reporting system. Concur is a system used by many US corporations, and greatly eases the auditing process. A key item is that if you are expense reporting for activities withing the Section, you can continue to do that with emailed receipts. If you are reporting expenses outside the section (to Society meetings for instance, you will need to use Concur. Contact James Mercier, Treasurer, if you need help.

Vice Chair Andrew Bluiett held a Secretary training session on March 2, 2023 – an audio file will be posted here soon.  

The 2023 Summer Planning Meeting is Saturday, August 26th, at Texas State, San Marcos and online.  Register here – all IEEE members at all levels are welcome.  https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/367092
