Chairperson’s Report  two major functions of the Board. Once again, we won a Pinnacle Silver Award.

ORLANDO WORLD CENTER MARRIOTT RESORT & CONVENTION CENTER It is time for ANTEC 2010 and also time for the “changing of the guard”. Pierre Moulinie will take over as chairman of the Board of Directors at our ANTEC meeting on Sunday, May 16. Hopefully, this will give me an opportunity to reinforce our membership committee and help the division in other responsibilities. The past year has been very rewarding for me. The dedication and ownership of our board members made my task much easier than what I perceived at …the outset. I especially thank Steve Driscoll and Murali Rajagopalan for their continuous involvement in

We have elected seven new board members. It is expected that they will bring in new ideas and healthy enthusiasm. The Division made two nominations for election of 2010 Society Fellows. Hung Ju Sue from Texas A&M University was elected a Fellow and will be recognized at the Continued on Page 2

Welcome to New  and Returning  Board Members  Thank you all for participating in the recent election of new members of the Board. We originally planned to elect 5 members from 8 candidates. However, since we will be losing a Board Member after May 2010 and received a tie for 6th place, we decided to elect 7 Board Members from among 8 candidates to serve for the next three years: Ashish Batra, Kevin Kit, Daniel Liu, Jason Lyons, Daniel Schmidt, Ashish Sukhadia, and Dave Zumbrunnen I thank the returning members and welcome the new members to the Board. — Sadhan Jana

Councilor’s Report 

As members of the scientific community, our efforts to generate ideas, develop technology and manage information have helped to produce “next generation” materials and processes. Unfortunately, these efforts have not been as effective at producing the “next generation” of members, and more importantly contributors to SPE. We will have to move beyond the science to personal interactions and networking to have the greatest impact on SPE member development. The advantages of membership in SPE are certainly significant: Career Development, Technical Information, Training and Education, Peer Advice, and Networking Opportunities. These are fantastic benefits to make new members aware of – but how does expanding our membership benefit you as an existing member? When you exchange knowledge and develop professional contacts your knowledge, network and influence grow.

The result? Your access to information, capability, knowledge and expertise advances rapidly. These enhance your productivity, efficiency, and broaden your base of impact! All of this is built into SPE. At ANTEC 2010 in Orlando, we will be discussing and defining new ways to improve the impact of SPE for your network, your community. I look forward to the discussion, and welcome any suggestions that you may have to help us succeed as an organization. Contact me. You would be a great partner to have in my network. I want to be the same for you! - Brian Landes

awards banquet on May 16. Two of our current Board members will also be recognized at the awards banquet. Murali Rajagopalan will receive the 2010 SPE Research Award and I will receive the 2010 SPE Education Award. We both would enjoy your company at the awards banquet - please attend. Our new chair, Pierre Moulinie will write this column for the next year. Please extend as much help as you can to Pierre so that our Board can maintain its quality technical programs at ANTEC and TOPCON and continue to serve our profession better. — Sadhan Jana
