The History Committee researches, collects, and documents past history of IEEE Region 5. Theodore A. Bickart is the current chairman. The primary location of Region 5 history is at the IEEE Global History Network (GHN). The purpose of this page is not to duplicate that content, but rather to list a few of the major milestones in our history. You are encouraged to visit the GHN site where you are free to add your own words of recollection to our history or to that of your own local entity history. Suggestions for items to include here are more than welcome. Enjoy!

Many thanks to Jim Leonard and John Meredith for their lists of pre-2000 former directors! Note that prior to 1963, IEEE didn’t exist as such. AIEE and IRE both had regions but the organization was a bit different from now. For that history, you are referred to the GHN.
