LI Section January 2021 Newsletter



January 2021 Newsletter

Welcome to the IEEE Long Island Section January 2021 e-Newsletter.

We will be publishing this e-newsletter periodically to try to keep our membership informed on a wide variety of technical topics.  If you have any comments and/or suggestions, please reply to us.  Thanks. 

In these unusual times it would be nice if we could all indulge in some learning as we deal with reduced or missing work hours.  

Below are some links to free Webinars and lectures on a very wide range of highly interesting topics.  Enjoy!

  • The IEEE-PES is co-sponsoring the International Energy and Sustainability Conference (IESC2021) in March of 2021. The conference theme is "climate resiliency". We have an IEEE distinguished lecturer and IEEE Fellow, Dr. Damir Novosel, as the Technical Keynote speaker.

We expect the topics will include “Finding a job in these COVID Times”, a workshop on ”Tell Me About Yourself in 5 minutes”, hints on “How to write a winning Resume”, etc.   For updates watch the LI Section Website at:
