IEEE leadership should continuously grow IEEE as the premiere organization for our scientific and professional community and as the reference for academy, industry, government, and the general public, for the benefit of humanity.
The global perspective allows for sharing knowledge as well as for creating networking opportunities around the world to sustain the global growth of the humanity. None should be ever left behind since everybody is an essential part of our scientific and professional community and everybody can actually contribute to advance technology, innovate, and – ultimately – to the social and economic development.
IEEE should always be a scientific and professional association by people for people. I firmly believe that volunteers, especially the most senior, and the organizational units should always be involved in the decision processes since the inception. They should be integral part of the creation of the solutions, especially for fundamental problems.
All groups of our scientific and professional community should be equally nurtured. While maintaining and reinforcing the services and the products which are valuable to academia, we should expand and create more products and services addressing the needs of professionals, industry and entrepreneurs as well as people in government agencies.
