R10 Large Section of the Month
IEEE Bombay Section was formed on 13th July 1976 from the erstwhile India Section, with Mr. T.V. Balan as its first Chairperson. The initial territory of the Section included the states of Maharashtra, Goa and Gujarat. While Gujarat and Pune city (in Maharashtra) became separate Sections in 1990 and 2010 respectively, the states of Madhya Pradesh (MP) and Chhattisgarh as well as the union territory of Diu and Daman were subsequently added to the Bombay Section’s footprint. Nagpur in Maharashtra and MP are the two subsections under Bombay Section . . .
R10 Personality of the Month- SURESH NAIR
Dr. K. R. Suresh Nair has been an IEEE Member for the last 29 years. He is not just an exemplary leader, but also a vibrant volunteer. Suresh Nair was a major influencer in the founding of Kochi Subsection and raising it to become one of the best subsections in the region, with more than 150 events every year, over the past few years consistently. Due to his true leadership, and his dedication to volunteering for the IEEE community, he continued to be the Chair of Kochi Subsection for a record third term, on insistence of the members. While the usual path to being elected the Chair of a Section is via initially serving the supporting roles of either Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, etc., due to his excelling performance as the Chair for Kochi Subsection, he was unanimously elected the Chair of Kerala Section in 2016-17 . . .
