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 indicated that he is arranging a Secretary training session this year – All Chapter Secretaries, and proposed Secretaries are encouraged to attend. More to come!
The next Planning Meeting will tentatively be Saturday, August 19th, at Texas State, San Marcos and online.
