The Vancouver Section was established on August 22, 1911. The Section encompasses the geographical area of the province of BC, except for Vancouver Island (which is part of the Victoria Section). The Section currently has about 2200 active members, including 325 students at BCIT, SFU, and UBC. It is the fourth largest Section in Canada.
The Section operates on a fiscal year that runs from May - April of each year. The Annual General Meeting and election of new officers are held on the second Monday of each May. Meetings and social events are generally held from September - April.
The Section's nine active technical chapters represent 15 of the 37 technical societies and councils of IEEE and are listed on the menu bar to the left. Each chapter holds 5-6 technical meetings or tours each year. Some chapters organize a few half or full day seminars, and a distinguished lecture or two.
The Section also has active committees responsible for:
GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade)
IEEE Continuing education courses are offered online at http://www.ieee.org/web/education/home/index.html
Local courses are also offered at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UBC, the School of Engineering Science at SFU, and at the British Columbia Institute of Technology.
The Section publishes a newsletter, "IEEE CONTACT", 9 times each year (from September - May) that is emailed to members.
