Greetings to all - At the end of my committee term
(Tokyo Section Chair Yasuhiko Yasuda)
We have been working as a committee for the Tokyo Section since January 2003, and our term will end at the end of this December and a new committee will take over starting next year. At this time, I would like to look back on this two year term.
First of all, at the end of 2002, the number of members was 7,299. This increased to 7,318 at the end of 2003 and slightly increased to 7,361 at the end of October 2004. We think this was acceptable, considering the condition of not being able to stop the decrease in the number of members for entire IEEE and for various institutes inside the country.
Next, we had happy events such as member Sekimoto receiving the Medal of Honor, member Suematsu receiving the James H. Mulligan, Jr. Education Medal, and member Iga receiving the IEEE Daniel E. Noble award, and for many of us to receive the title of Fellow. Also, in November, the worldfs first commercial quartz watch developed by the Seiko group was recognized as the fourth IEEE milestone in our country and the award ceremony was performed in Tokyo.
Furthermore, each standing committee worked actively and we should pay special attention to one of our collaborative relationships, one with the Boston branch which we signed in the first half, and where we sent student representatives to Boston to deepen our relationship.
Next, we planned to promote IT by establishing our own server and were able to accomplish this. On the other hand, our secretary and treasurer struggled with unusual operations resulting from issues such as processing after the bankruptcy of the building owner where our office was located, and the changing of the secretaries who had worked for many years.
Now, I would like to thank the Murakami branch vice president, the Matsushima secretary, the Sezaki treasurer and all members of the committee. Also, I would like to extend a special thank you to Administrative agent of KDDI and Ms Chizuko Mochizuki of KDDI for their cooperation. I also would like to thank the secretariat for undertaking an unusually heavy workload. Finally, I would like to extend my very best wishes for the health of each member.
