Region 6 (Western United States) was established in 1963 when AIEE and IRE merged to form IEEE.

Predecessor to Region 6 existed in AIEE; AIEE lists Districts 8, 9 and 15 containing Sections that are currently in Region 6.

Like other Regions, an annual expo, called WESCON, was formed and existed over 50 years - from 1951-2005 when it was dissolved. WESON alternated between the Los Angeles area and the Bay area. At its peak in the 1980's it drew approximately 50,000 attendees.

Areas

The Region is divided into five areas: Central (CA), Northeast (NEA), Northwest (NWA), Southern SA), Southwest (SWA).There are two Councils: Los Angeles (LAC) and San Francisco Bay Area (SFBAC).
