IEEE Geographic Unit Organizing Document - New Zealand South

Background

After the formation of the orginal New Zealand Section, in 1975 Robin Harrington of Christchurch approached the executive of the NZ IEEE Section with a proposal that a South Island NZ Section of the IEEE be established. The proposal could not proceed at the time because there were fewer than 50 members in the South Island. At a subsequent election of officers Robin Harrington became Vice Chairman of the existing New Zealand Section.

In 1978 he put forward a first petition for a South Island Section. This petition was finally approved in 1979 after a boundary adjustment which divided the New Zealand membership into North and South sections.

Chapters and Affinity Groups

In March 2010, a Joint chapter of IEEE Power & Energy and IEEE Power Electronics was established.
