The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers was officially organized in 1963 [[Formation of IEEE by the Merger of AIEE and IRE|through the merger of two prior professional organizations]]: The [[AIEE History 1884-1963|American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE)]] and the [[IRE History 1912-1963|Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE)]]. A lot of effort was expended by many individuals in forming the IEEE. A committee was established to develop the planned merger of the two organizations. [[Lloyd V. Berkner|Dr. Lloyd Berkner]], [[Presidents of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE)|president of the AIEE]], and [[Presidents of the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE)|past national president of the IRE]]; and Mr. [[Patrick E. Haggerty|Patrick E. Haggerty]], president of the IRE at the time of the merger and first [[Presidents of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE)|president of the IEEE]], were instrumental in bringing about the merger of the organization. A Dallas branch of the AIEE had existed prior to the merger since 1956.

== IEEE Dallas Section  ==
 +
 
 +
The Dallas Section of the IEEE was organized in 1963. Merging the local branches of the AIEE and the IRE was a difficult task. It was decided that elected officials should include a Vice-Chairman-Electrical to represent the previous members of the AIEE and the a Vice-Chairman-Electronics to represent the previous members of the IRE. Other elected officers were the Chairman, Executive Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. It was agreed by the early founders that the chairmanship would alternate between the electrical and electronic members. Elected officers served for twelve months beginning July 1.

== Reorganization of the Dallas Section in 1971  ==
 +
 
 +
Dr. M. B. O'Neal, Chairman of the Dallas Section in 1971, nominated a committee for reorganizing the Dallas Section. Members of the committee were R.S. Miner - Chairman, B. R. Hallford, Howard Oliver, W. D. Mitchell, H.G. Stoddard, J. R. Wilson, and R. L. Bell.<br>
 +
 
 +
The objective of the Comittee was summarized as follows:
 +
 
 +
#Improve coordination and liason among the Section Societies and Section
 +
#Re-examine, update, and recommend improvements from a managerial standpoint in the overall organization.
 +
#Propose a more realistic mechanism for continuing editorial direction and business management of <u>Direction</u> magazine.
 +
#Establish a means for effective corrdination of regional or national IEEE conferences to be held in Dallas.<br>
 +
 
 +
The Committee's report is contained in the following paragraphs:
 +
 
 +
As general changes to future Nomination Committees there was a very strong mutual feeling that the Dallas Section has become a large enough managerial operation that it is quite important that Section offices must be given only to those people with proven adminstrative capability who will have the necessary financial and secretarial support from their organizations to permit the offices to be discharged adequately. If further considerd necessary in the case of the Chairman, Executive Vice-Chairman, and the proposed new Group Vice-Chairman, that these individuals have sufficient time flexibility that will permit then the opportunity to travel to a limited number of regional or national meetings. (In most cases, it will be necessary for such travel to be paid for by the officer's employer.)<br>
 +
 
 +
Principal recommendations for reorganization involved:
 +
 
 +
#Adminstrative and financial management of the Section will be vested in a small Executive Committee, consisting only of the elected officers, which will meet at rather frequent intervals, as the Section may require.
 +
#Section activities relating to technical services to the Section Members, or having broader interest, would be handled in a larger meeting of a Board of Directors composed of all Section officers, Chairmen of each Society in the Section and Chairmen of designated principal committees. It is anticipated that the Board of Directors would meet perhaps two or three times a year.<br>
 +
 
 +
Changes in reporting responsibilities woudl be made as follows to distribute the total management workload more equitabley:
 +
 
 +
#A Groiup Vice-Chairman would be charged with co-ordinating the activities of all Section/Societies. He would be a former Chairman of one of the Section/Societies. It would be his responsibility to assist Society Chairman with the solution of their problems and serve as a two-way communications channel throughout the year between the Societies and the section, specifically including its Executive Committee.
 +
#An adminstrative Vice-Chairman would be designated to oversee the acitivities of the Industrial Liason, Student Activities, Awards, Professional Activities and Study Activity Comittees, as well as any related special assignments given to him by the Selection Chairman or Section Executive Committe (e.g. Centennial Activities Committee).
 +
#An Executive Vice-Chairman will carry full responsibility for publication of <u>Direction</u> magazine and the closely related activities of the Publicity, Entertainment and the Program Comittees. We would propose to continue the present continuity of office, wherein this officer normally moves up to the Chairman's position the following year. In recognition of this, we have also assigned to him responsibility for the Nominating and Conference Coordinating Committees.
 +
#The Section Chairman would need to be freed of supervisory responsibilities for all except the five elected officers, SWIEEECO Borad Representative, and delegate to the Dallas-Ft. Worth Council of Scientific and Engineering Societies.
 +
 
 +
Appropriate changes were made to the Bylaws of the Dallas Section and voted on by the membership. Elected officers since the reorganization are listed below:

During the 1996-97 year a simplifed version of the bylaws was adopted. These bylaws closely followed the format suggested by the National IEEE organization. Following additional instructions from the IEEE, the titles of some of the Executive Committee positions were renamed, leaving only a single Vice Chairman. The Duties of each member of the Executive Committee remains the same. <br>

AIEE Activities

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers was officially organized in 1963 through the merger of two prior professional organizations: The American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) and the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE). A lot of effort was expended by many individuals in forming the IEEE. A committee was established to develop the planned merger of the two organizations. Dr. Lloyd Berkner, president of the AIEE, and past national president of the IRE; and Mr. Patrick E. Haggerty, president of the IRE at the time of the merger and first president of the IEEE, were instrumental in bringing about the merger of the organization. A Dallas branch of the AIEE had existed prior to the merger since 1956.

Past Chairmen of the Dallas Branch of the AIEE are listed below:

  • 1956, Crandell
  • 1957, Chadwick
  • 1958, Tatum
  • 1959, Robuck
  • 1960, Sandlin
  • 1961, Martin
  • 1962, Fikar
  • 1963, Reynolds

IEEE Dallas Section

The Dallas Section of the IEEE was organized in 1963. Merging the local branches of the AIEE and the IRE was a difficult task. It was decided that elected officials should include a Vice-Chairman-Electrical to represent the previous members of the AIEE and the a Vice-Chairman-Electronics to represent the previous members of the IRE. Other elected officers were the Chairman, Executive Vice-Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. It was agreed by the early founders that the chairmanship would alternate between the electrical and electronic members. Elected officers served for twelve months beginning July 1.

Reorganization of the Dallas Section in 1971

Dr. M. B. O'Neal, Chairman of the Dallas Section in 1971, nominated a committee for reorganizing the Dallas Section. Members of the committee were R.S. Miner - Chairman, B. R. Hallford, Howard Oliver, W. D. Mitchell, H.G. Stoddard, J. R. Wilson, and R. L. Bell.

The objective of the Comittee was summarized as follows:

  1. Improve coordination and liason among the Section Societies and Section
  2. Re-examine, update, and recommend improvements from a managerial standpoint in the overall organization.
  3. Propose a more realistic mechanism for continuing editorial direction and business management of Direction magazine.
  4. Establish a means for effective corrdination of regional or national IEEE conferences to be held in Dallas.

The Committee's report is contained in the following paragraphs:

As general changes to future Nomination Committees there was a very strong mutual feeling that the Dallas Section has become a large enough managerial operation that it is quite important that Section offices must be given only to those people with proven adminstrative capability who will have the necessary financial and secretarial support from their organizations to permit the offices to be discharged adequately. If further considerd necessary in the case of the Chairman, Executive Vice-Chairman, and the proposed new Group Vice-Chairman, that these individuals have sufficient time flexibility that will permit then the opportunity to travel to a limited number of regional or national meetings. (In most cases, it will be necessary for such travel to be paid for by the officer's employer.)

Principal recommendations for reorganization involved:

  1. Adminstrative and financial management of the Section will be vested in a small Executive Committee, consisting only of the elected officers, which will meet at rather frequent intervals, as the Section may require.
  2. Section activities relating to technical services to the Section Members, or having broader interest, would be handled in a larger meeting of a Board of Directors composed of all Section officers, Chairmen of each Society in the Section and Chairmen of designated principal committees. It is anticipated that the Board of Directors would meet perhaps two or three times a year.

Changes in reporting responsibilities woudl be made as follows to distribute the total management workload more equitabley:

  1. A Groiup Vice-Chairman would be charged with co-ordinating the activities of all Section/Societies. He would be a former Chairman of one of the Section/Societies. It would be his responsibility to assist Society Chairman with the solution of their problems and serve as a two-way communications channel throughout the year between the Societies and the section, specifically including its Executive Committee.
  2. An adminstrative Vice-Chairman would be designated to oversee the acitivities of the Industrial Liason, Student Activities, Awards, Professional Activities and Study Activity Comittees, as well as any related special assignments given to him by the Selection Chairman or Section Executive Committe (e.g. Centennial Activities Committee).
  3. An Executive Vice-Chairman will carry full responsibility for publication of Direction magazine and the closely related activities of the Publicity, Entertainment and the Program Comittees. We would propose to continue the present continuity of office, wherein this officer normally moves up to the Chairman's position the following year. In recognition of this, we have also assigned to him responsibility for the Nominating and Conference Coordinating Committees.
  4. The Section Chairman would need to be freed of supervisory responsibilities for all except the five elected officers, SWIEEECO Borad Representative, and delegate to the Dallas-Ft. Worth Council of Scientific and Engineering Societies.

Appropriate changes were made to the Bylaws of the Dallas Section and voted on by the membership. Elected officers since the reorganization are listed below:

Section Officers that have been elected to serve since the reorganization are as follow:

IEEE Section Positions
Year
Section Chairman
Vice-Chairman-Adminstration
Vice-Chairman-Groups
Treasurer
Section Acitivities Chairman

During the 1996-97 year a simplifed version of the bylaws was adopted. These bylaws closely followed the format suggested by the National IEEE organization. Following additional instructions from the IEEE, the titles of some of the Executive Committee positions were renamed, leaving only a single Vice Chairman. The Duties of each member of the Executive Committee remains the same.

Section Officers that have been elected to serve since the reorganization are as follows:

IEEE Section Positions
Year Section Chairman Vice Chairman Adminstrative Chairman Treasurer Section Activities Chairman Secretary
1996-97 Krishna Agarwal Jan van der Ziel Ellis Rankin Larry Chasteen Dhawal Moghe Zeynep Celik Butler
