Officer Rosters

The IEEE Region 5 homepage has a menu on the right which has links to a) the Region 5 excom roster, and b) Section Officers. In the past, these two links took you to a simple list of contact data for either the excom or section officers. The lists were produced periodically by IEEE HQ from the vTools Officer Reporting database. That was replaced in 2016 with a new one-stop-shop for IEEE rosters at rosters.ieee.org. The old lists are no longer updated and have been removed. On the new page, you have the option of either searching for a person or organization, or browsing a list. For example, to find the officers for the Central Texas Section, a) click on the bullet next to IEEE Geographic Units, b) click on the bullet next to Region 5, c) click on the bullet next to Sections, d) click on Central Texas (not the bullet).  On the right you’ll see a list of officers and committee chairs for the Central Texas Section.

If you know a person’s name but not their office or section name you can search for that person. For example, if you recall meeting an interesting fellow by the name of Redfield but don’t recall what he does, you can enter ‘redfield’ in the search box and as you type, various matches will be displayed. Select ‘joe redfield’ and you’ll see his contact information as well as all of the offices he holds displayed. Be sure that ‘people’ is selected and not ‘organizational units’. If you know the geocode or unit name, you can search for those as well. This list of rosters even includes student branches, unlike the old lists.

Keep in mind that, like the old lists, this new roster is also produced from the officer reporting database. If you haven’t reported that new officer, they won’t show up here! Try it out. I think you’ll like it.
