The Region 8 YP Committee is proud to announce the winner of the Region 8 Outstanding GOLD Affinity Group Award for its activities during 2012: the award goes to Finland! The Finland YP Affinity Group is acknowledged for their many successful and divers activities, as well as their continued efforts to motivate volunteers and inspire IEEE YP members.
The Region 8 YP Committee received many excellent nominations for the award. Since Tunisia had the pleasure of recently receiving an MGA Hall of Fame Award and our regional award can only be given to a YP Affinity Group that has not received another IEEE award in the same year, the Tunisian YP AG was excluded from the nominations. Although it was a very hard decision due to the strong competition and the great quality of nominations, the Region 8 YP Committee decided that the Finnish YP Affinity Group will win this year’s award.
R8 YP would like to congratulate the Finland YP Affinity Group and would also like to thank all Region 8 YP Affinity Groups for the great work they are doing. This year we received more nominations than ever before and we hope the number will keep on rising next year!
Keep up the good work!
IEEE Region 8 YP Committee
