Following our general strategy to organize the OpCom’s meetings in the distantly located or newly established Sections, the 2nd 2009 OpCom meeting was held in Tunisia on the 9th-12th of July. The main theme of the session was the financial condition of the IEEE as a whole and of the Region 8 in particular, as well as the related revision of our activities and plans for this and next year. Agenda of the Fall R8 Committee Meeting to be held in Lisbon, has also been prepared. The other reason for our visit to Tunisia was the 125th IEEE Anniversary and the 1st Anniversary of the Tunisia Section.

It is the youngest R8 Section (established last year), but the most dynamically developing one, currently with nearly 400 members, 12 new Chapters and 3 Student Branches. We have also held a frutiful visit to an actively operating Techno-Park. More details can be found in the article by R8 Secretary. Please click here …
Taking this opportunity, I would like to express words of satisfaction and praise for the achievements and involvement of the Tunisia Secion.
Jozef Modelski, Region 8 Director
