IEEE Day commemorates that time in 1884 when a group of engineers met in New York and decided to continue to meet regularly to share information and further the profession. Join the celebration and learn about the various offers and contests IEEE has to offer.
Connie Kelly joined IEEE as an IIT student shortly after IEEE was formed in the sixties. Over the years she has had a strong relationship with IEEE serving on several Medical Standards Projects and was a founding member of the Standards Association. In addition to presenting numerous technical papers both in and out of IEEE, She has served as Chair of the Chicago Chapter of Engineering in Medicine and Biology, Chair of the Chicago Section, and was a member of the IEEE National Engineers’ Week Committee during the year it was the national lead organization. She currently serves as the Northwest Subsection Chair, Education Chair for Chicago Section, on the Humanitarian Activities Grant Review Panel, Region 4 K-12 Activity Coordinator, and the Region 4 lead for 2020 IEEE Day.
