Region 6 Central Area Spring Meeting


Student competitions -- including MicroMouse & Pitch Project/Poster-- will be held.

The Region 6 Central Area Spring 2018 meeting will be held on campus on SJSU on Saturday April 21st from 8:30AM to 4PM.  There are two major programs in the 1-day meeting: one for the section officers and another for the students.  The IEEE Region 6 Central Area consists of the central and northern California, northern Nevada and Hawaii sections, subsection, and student branches.  

Each section and subsection should send at least one delegate to the Central Area Meeting.  This is usually the chair.  While there is only 1 delegate whose travel may be covered, you are encouraged to send as many volunteer leaders who your section might benefit from sending.

Each student branch in the area should send 2 student branch officers and their branch counselor (faculty advisor) would also be supported to attend.  While travel support is limited to this number and to those with more than 50 miles to travel, additional students are welcome and encouraged. This event does include student competitions -  Micro-mouse and Pitch - are also planned. 

No hotel block is arranged. The Four Points by Sheraton San Jose Downtown is near the meeting and has rooms available at $109 (as of 3/19) for the night of April 10.
