Ed Donahue

Cecelia Jankowski

An IEEE senior member, Cecelia Jankowski has been the Managing Director of IEEE MGA since 1995. She is responsible for
implementing membership engagement and leadership development strategies for MGA and IEEE geographic units around
the world. When IEEE Regional Activities was renamed IEEE
Member and Geographic Activities in 2008, Ms. Jankowski was a
member of the leadership team spearheading the transition. She
also helped expand the scope of the IEEE Asia Pacific Operations
Centre in Singapore to assist IEEE members in the Asia-Pacific
Region. In 2010, Ms. Jankowski helped to develop the MGA
regional geographic strategies for gaining new members and enhancing the value of IEEE membership.
Ms. Jankowski holds an M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering
from Polytechnic University, New York, the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering with honors from SUNY at Stony Brook, and
an MBA degree from the Rutgers University Executive MBA

Ed Donahue has loyally served the IEEE for 39 years in various
positions in the Facilities services area. Ed advanced from working in
the warehouse to group leader to supervisor to his current position
as Maintenance Manager. Throughout his daily responsibilities, Ed
deals with all levels of employees and is on call 24x7x365. Regardless
of whom he is helping, Ed treats all employees with equal respect
and does everything in his power to accommodate their concerns.
Ed puts himself in the employees' shoes, listening to all details about
a situation in order to arrive at a reasonable solution while still maintaining IEEE standards. Among Ed's many accomplishments are the
new cafeteria seating area and the new front lobby at 445 Hoes Lane.
Endorsers for Ed's nomination consistently recognized his positive
demeanor and the dedication he has brought to all levels of his job
over the years. One endorser writes, "Ed is always willing to undertake new projects and responsibilities, relishing them as opportunities rather than extra work. ... It is a pleasure to work with an
individual who exemplifies the qualities that Joyce Farrell possessed."
