IEEE Australian Capital Territory Section History
The Australia Capital Territory (ACT) region was geographically covered by the original IEEE Australia Section from 1972 to 1985, and was part of the IEEE NSW Section from 1985 through to 1988. The ACT is fully geographically bound by New South Wales.
Dr Harry Green of the ACT was first “elected” Region 10 Director for 1983-84. This coincided with the region 10 boundary adjustments. While Harry was never represented on the Australia Section committee, he was the Canberra liaison and host for many international visitors to the ACT.
The 1983 IEEE President, Dr James Owens and the IEEE General Manager, Eric Herz, visited the Canberra headquarters of the Institution of Engineers (now known as Engineers Australia), Australia in 1983 for discussions about formalising a cooperative 'Australia wide 'member agreement.
The 'ACT' Section
The Australia Capital Territory Section was officially recognised on 18 November 1988
