IEEE Region 6 Recognizes CNSV as Outstanding Chapter
Posted Friday, Apr 17, 2015 by Sean Murphy
In 2015 CNSV was recognized by IEEE Region 6 as outstanding in promoting members’ skills and providing educational opportunities for Silicon Valley. The award reads:
Consultants Network of Silicon Valley
For creating a network to promote the skills of its consultants, fostering collaboration among its members, creating alliances with other IEEE chapters, and providing educational opportunities for Silicon Valley.
The CNSV Board produced a short video to explain the award:
The following CNSV members contributed to the video:
- Dennis Falkenstein: overview and introductions.
- Brian Berg: commentary.
- Kip Brown: commentary.
- Perry West: photography and editing.
My thanks for the hard work put into this effort by Perry West (for the filming and editing work) and Dennis Falkenstein (for organizing the effort, and working with Perry). It is great to see CNSV recognized in such a high-profile manner.
A very big thank you also to Awards Chair Jeffrey Pawlan for his steadfastness in ensuring that there were multiple award nominations from our Santa Clara Valley Section. His efforts resulted in our Section receiving a number of awards from Region 6.
I would also like to congratulate Dennis Falkenstein and Perry West for an exceptional effort. Dennis did a great job putting the whole project together and Perry’s editing resulted in a smooth final cut. Kudos!
IEEE-CNSV is one of the most outstanding chapters in the Santa Clara Valley Section of IEEE. Varied and dynamic programs are the norm and also focused, professional development workshops. CNSV would probably become a dynasty for winning the Best Chapter award if only the rules did not prohibit consecutive wins!!
Great job by Dennis Falkenstein and Perry West for putting together the video to highlight this accomplishment. I also want to thank Larry Nagel for the very significant effort that he put into the IEEE-CNSV application for Best Chapter. This award all started with Larry!
