R8 Outstanding Young Professional Affinity Group Award goes to NIGERIA!!!

The Region 8 Young Professionals Subcommittee is proud to announce the winner of the Region 8 Outstanding Young Professionals Affinity Group Award for its activities during 2013: this year, the Award goes to Nigeria!

The Nigeria Young Professionals Affinity Group has been working harder every year and now they have reached an outstanding level. Their high quality activities, together with their continued efforts to motivate volunteers and inspire IEEE YP members, make them deservedly win this Award. Congratulations Nigeria!

It is always a hard decision due to the great quality of the YP Affinity Groups in Region 8. We wish this encourages not only the Nigerian AG, but also all the other AGs to keep up pursuing the amazing work, the high motivation and the valuable contributions to IEEE, since those are always the key factors to win this Award.
