I am honored that IEEE Islamabad Section Executive Committee entrusted me for the responsibilities of the Chair, IEEE Islamabad Section in the ExCom meeting held in May 2017. Leading this very active and prominent IEEE section is a huge responsibility, and I hope that I will be able to contribute to the growth of our section.

IEEE Islamabad Section is one of the very vibrant sections in the Region 10 of IEEE. With 15 student branches, 08 technical society chapters, 02 affinity groups and one sub-section, IEEE Islamabad section strives hard to promote the IEEE cause. With valuable contribution through meetings, conferences, workshops and other discussion forums, the activities of the section have always focused on our mission, societal development and benefit to the community through technology. We have maintained a steady growth in membership in our section and recently received the '2017 Outstanding Section Membership Retention Performance' award. All this is possible through a very energetic team of young volunteers, who are rigorously guided and mentored by an experienced and very dedicated team of senior members. I hope that our members will continue to enhance section's activities as well as progress further to Senior Member and Fellow membership grades.

IEEE provides an excellent platform to professionals, not only to synergize efforts but also to excel in their professions. IEEE membership provides learning opportunities beyond boundaries, through various forums and interest-based networking of professionals. The society membership offers numerous benefits, valuable resources and opportunities which can help and guide a volunteer to advance the the career. IEEE specially encourages professional women through the Women in Engineering (WiE) affinity group. Industry Relations and Consultancy is another affinity group where IEEE puts lot of emphasis, in order to bridge the gap between academia and industry.

With the team of experienced as well as enthusiastic volunteers, I am confident that IEEE Islamabad Section will continue progressing with the same zeal and dedication, and will contribute positively in the society.

I look forward to your participation and cooperation.

With warm regards,

Dr. Amir Qayyum
