October 2012 – President Message

Industrial Engineers and Friends of Industrial Engineers,

Welcome to our October, 2012 Newsletter. In this month’s newsletter you find an article by Deborah Walker, Certified Career Management Coach. The article is titled, “Ten Signs of Job Dissatisfaction—Don’t Ignore Them!” Also, you will see a reprinting of a notice that goes out annually as the college school season starts up. The notice goes to all colleges within our greater National Capital area. The notices states the various ways that our board has agreed to assist IE student programs. Let us know if you are interested in being part of our volunteer group to work with these student chapters.

Speaking of volunteering, it is time to consider your interest in running for one of our Chapter Board positions. We can have a maximum of 15 board directors and of course, an unlimited number of volunteers. Board Members try to attend all of our monthly board meetings, which are held in Tysons Corner. It is ok to miss some of the meetings. The directors are responsible for the various activities that we do during the program year. These activities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Membership Activities
  • Evening Technical Programs
  • Social & Networking Programs
  • National Engineers Week Activities
  • IE & Boy Scouts at the National Boy Scout Events
  • High School & Middle School Science Fairs
  • Outreach to:
  • Washington DC Council of Engineers and Architects Society (DCCEAS)
  • Washington Academy of Science (WAS)
  • Washington DC Chapter of the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (WINFORMS)

If you are interested in running for a board director, as our Treasurer or Secretary, or to learn more about these positions on our board, please send an email to me or any of the current board. Our contact information can be found on our website.

The requirements for running for any of these positions are a willingness to volunteer and being a member in good standings of IIE and the National Capital Chapter. The requirement to run for president or vice president also includes already having served on the board of directors.

Until next month,
Russell Wooten
