IEEE CTS Life Members Austin Monthly Meeting, Tuesday, March 15, 2016: "A Report on the 2015 IEEE Life Members' Technical Tour"

 

The Life Members Group - Austin is becoming active again, and has settled on having meetings for a late lunch at 2 PM on the third Tuesday of each month. We will meet at PoK-e-Jo's Smokehouse on Parmer Lane in Austin. This allow us to reserve a meeting room with food service without a large concern about the attendance. Once we have a number of regular attendees, we can consider moving to a lunch hour meeting, if the members would rather do that.

The IEEE Life Members' Committee has sponsored a series of technical tours.  The 2015 tour went from Paris, France to Geneva, Switzerland to Munich, Germany.   These tours include visits to technology sites and more usual tourist places.

Several Central Texas Section Life Members went on the 2015 Tech Tour of Europe and will report on the experience.  The presentation will consist of a SnapFish photo album, made up of photos taken by Susanne and Tom O'Brien on the tour of France, Switzerland, and Germany.  The photo album will be shown on the large screen in the meeting room.  The tour consisted of ten days of group travel, with visits to IEEE Milestones sites and other historical sites, such as museums.  Tom Grim and Tom O’Brien will share their impressions of the tour.
