During the last decade, we have been witnessing tremendous (and perhaps disruptive) advances in science, engineering, and technology, in the face of which, I will strive to:
Contribute to the design, implementation, and deployment of new initiatives that will turn what may be considered as threats of today into opportunities.
Help IEEE develop and implement new products and services to better serve its members and the public, especially in the Far East and Africa.
Promote an IEEE-wide strategy for increasing the involvement of industrial practitioners and researchers in IEEE in the form of a “Triple Helix of IEEE, Industry, and Academia Towards Knowledge Generation.”
Be an advocate of UNESCO's sustainable development goals in the actions of the Board.
Be an advocate of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at IEEE for the promotion of "an inclusive and equitable culture that welcomes, engages, and rewards all who contribute to the field, without regard to race, religion, gender, disability, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression."
Encourage TAB Societies and Councils to promote more cooperation and foster collaboration to build future relationships and partnerships among them e.g., joint special sections of their publications.
Last but not least, listen to ideas and opinions from TAB Societies and Councils (especially from those of Div. X), and evaluate and carry them to the General Assembly.
