On Friday, January 25, 2019 the Houston Section Life Members Group (LMG) met for the first time with an overflow of attendees. We’re still unsure if it was because of this inaugural meeting presided by Dr. Cajetan M. Akujuobi, P.E. LMG HOU Sec. Chair or the Distinguish keynote speaker Mr. Joe Redfield, P.E., of Redfield Consulting Services.
T.Scott Atkinson, R5 Life Members Chair opened the meeting and shared some of the challenges and opportunities that await the newly formed LMG HOU Sec. Additional remarks were share by Christopher Sanderson, HOU Sec. Vice-Chair and R5 South Area Chair about the importance of leadership, policy and procedures, and mentorship. Key to this groups success will be defining goals and value proposition to its members.
Mr. Redfield presentation on “Electric transportation and the Grid – What will it take to deliver the promise?” was so well received that attendees added potential solutions to this challenging technology. The spirit of IEEE “Advancing Technology for Humanity” filled the discussion.
Special thanks to Scott Atkinson, Dr. Akujuobi, Christopher Sanderson, and Alice Wang, HOU Sec. Chair in supporting the newly formed HOU Sec. Life Members Group. Check the HOU Sec Events page for area meeting and information.
