History of IEEE–CNSV
Origins and Monthly Meetings

Art Rahman established the Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley (CNSV). The first organizational meeting was held in September 1993, in a large room at the University of Santa Clara. Assisting Art were Pete Lazarus and Bill Rousseau.

Bobbie Cronquist attended a Consultants’ Business Seminar in Anaheim, CA, in 1994. The Southern California IEEE sections that participated in that event were helpful in getting our chapter established. Art Rahman ran CNSV until 1995, at which time the Bylaws were established, dues were set and an officers’ election was held.
