Celebrating the first time in history when engineers worldwide and IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. IEEE Day’s theme is: “Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow”. … The celebration of IEEE Day on Tuesday, 29 October 2019 is the 10th year celebrating this historic event!

This year the IEEE Houston Section will be participating with a Chocolate tasting pairing with wine and cheeses.  We are fortunate to partner this year with XOCOLLA Artisan Chocolate.  Address and additional details will be provided to those who register.

Prior to making chocolate, Tony Najjar worked in global management consulting for over 25 years. He came across craft chocolate, which become his dream child after one of his California business trips back in 2006, where he was introduced to small-batch chocolate makers shops in the bay area. He was intrigued by the chocolate making process, its purity, simplicity and the richness of flavors that come only from 2 ingredients. He immediately fell in love and he began his journey as a hobby in 2006, then evolved to a part-time business in 2009, and finally to a full-time business working and growing XOCOLLA in 2015.

Tony’s mission is to share his passion and love for chocolate and raise awareness of craft chocolate among chocolate and clean food enthusiasts.
