Leadership is the ability to visualize a better future, then organize a group of individuals to achieve that vision.
As Chair of the redefined MGA - Member Benefits Portfolio Advisory Committee (MBPAC), I guided the development of the committee's operating philosophy, policies and procedures. With input from committee members, IEEE staff and outside experts, we converted an MGA charter statement into a functioning committee with processes to evaluate and rate all IEEE member benefit programs on the characteristics of member satisfaction, financial impact on IEEE and alignment of the benefit with IEEE core values.
For the period that I was Chair, the Denver Section was awarded the Region 5 Outstanding Large Section. During that time frame, I was able to organize and facilitate a wide range of activities which supported IEEE-USA initiatives, grew membership, engaged students, increased Chapter participation and left the Section with a strong leadership team.
