In the quiet days of early 2019, I answered the call from Dr. Witold Kinsner to take up the vacant position of Vice-Chair of IEEE Winnipeg Section. I was happy to do so.
In October 2019 and again in February 2020, I was able to go to the Region 7 (Canada) Board Meeting, and got to see how IEEE Canada works. I thought I was well prepared for the coming year…
Then COVID hit. We’ve been trying to regain our balance since.
I formally took over the position of section chair in May 2020. As of June 2021, I have turned over the position to Dr. Philip Ferguson of the University of Manitoba. I trust he can do more in person, especially as the pandemic eases (we hope!).
