Professional Member Induction Ceremony
IEEE-HKN wants to congratulate our new professional members on their induction into the Eta Chapter of the IEEE-HKN Board of Governors.
On June 23, we held a Professional Member Induction Ceremony at the Hyatt Regency New Brunswick to welcome three new professional members.
Steve E. Watkins, 2018 IEEE-HKN President, gave the induction ceremony. In the ceremony, inductees took the IEEE-HKN pledge, signed the member induction book for the IEEE-HKN Eta Chapter, and received their certificate and pin.
Professional membership aims to recognize professional accomplishments and outstanding contributions to engineering.
Professional members are not students. They are practicing engineers with 10 years of experience in the technical fields of interest of the IEEE, or they are faculty members of an active IEEE-HKN Chapter. They have demonstrated significant leadership and service through volunteer activities throughout their professional career.
To become a professional member, candidates must be nominated by a member of IEEE and IEEE-HKN. They must also be endorsed by two current members of IEEE-HKN. A review committee then evaluates the candidate, who decides if they are qualified to be a professional member.
We are extremely proud of our professional members and are thankful for their outstanding accomplishments and contributions to the field. We would also like to thank all of our IEEE-HKN members who came to celebrate at the induction ceremony. To any alumni who have lost touch with HKN, we encourage you to reconnect. If you were ever inducted into HKN, you are always a part of HKN.
