December 2011 – President Message

Hello to all Industrial Engineers and Friends of Industrial Engineers,

Welcome to our December newsletter. Wasn’t Thanksgiving in the DC area great!

It is that time of year again. Please consider volunteering your time to our local industrial engineering organization. That would be us, we are the men and women, young and old, independent business people, government workers, retired and private sector workers who try to bring you the very best to support you in all your efforts. (Remarkably, we don’t have any academics on our board, but we would like to have some.)

Requirements to serve on our board as a director are simple. You need to be willing to serve on our board. Technically, you must also be a senior level member of IIE in good standings with your membership.

The number of volunteers serving on our board positively influences our ability to bring you value added products and services. Also, the more volunteers we have the easier is the workload for everyone. We try to utilize small teams to get most of our projects completed. We work together so no one has too great of a load or expense of their time.

If elected to your board of directors, you will have the opportunity to get involved on many efforts that you will find interesting and invigorating. The key is to volunteer an amount of time that is acceptable for your personal situation. Work and family come first, but really getting involved and helping us accomplish a meaning service for our organization is a great and fun way to charge your energy levels.

Contact information for our executive officers and board members are located on our website. Give any of us a call or email to ask us any questions you have. If you are interested in serving on our board or want to nominate someone, please send me an email. In the subject line, please put “board election”.

Our nomination period is December 1st through December 15th. Our election will be by electronic ballot and it will run from December 20th through December 30th. We will announce the results on the 31st for December. The board and our program year is the calendar year.

We have one board meeting per month. Occasionally, we will hold our board meeting by conference call. Attendance is not mandatory. However, the president is known for bring in great breakfast food.

Please consider, please volunteer. We can make 2012 our best year yet.

Until next month,
Russell Wooten
President IIE National Capital Chapter
