Life Members Meetings

To IEEE Canada Life Members,

You are invited to a Life Members meeting. It is virtual so safe social distancing is maintained ;-)

IEEE Canada has 21 Sections, 12 of them have Life Member Affinity Groups (LMAG).
The Canada Life Members Committee should "take an active role in ensuring that Life Members in Sections where Life Member Affinity Groups do not exist maintain an active role in IEEE activities."
Up until now, the service to Life Members (LM) in the nine Sections without an Affinity Group has been limited to informing Section Chairs about LM and encouraging them to have appropriate activities.

Now, during the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face meetings can not happen. Virtual meetings are the thing, and many applications, like Google Meet, Webex and Zoom, have loosened the rules and limitations.

Here are nine open meetings that anyone can join. Pick a date and time that is convenient. Members can attend any or all of the sessions for teleconference experience and practice, but attending the one designated for their section might be the most useful.
