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.
