The Bridge - February 2018 - 4

Letter from the President and Director

Dear Eta Kappa Nu (HKN) Members and Friends
HKN and IEEE-HKN has a distinguished history and membership. It has done
much to promote excellence in the profession and in education through its
emphasis on scholarship, character, and service. The Wheatstone bridge emblem
represents the "balanced life" as described in the induction ritual is represented
aptly. When you use this emblem, you are showing your connection to more
than 200,000 members worldwide.

The organization is healthy with nearly 3,000 new members inducted, 11
chapters chartered or reinstated, and a new website launched last year. The
217 active chapters continue to provide thousands of service hours to their
institutions and communities. We thank 2017 President Tim Kurzweg and his
leadership team for outstanding work. During the beginning of 2018, we are
already seeing notable activity among the chapters, committees, and leadership.
In particular, the current Board of Governors is giving special emphasis to our
financial resources, faculty advisor support, the student conference, branding, and
the chapter experience.
The broad impact of IEEE-HKN is evident from the chapter reports. Departments
benefit through tutoring and mentoring activities; communities benefit from
service and STEM outreach, and new chapters benefit from mentoring by
established chapters. The positive influence of HKN experiences are obvious as
we talk with both students, faculty, and working engineers. This quote from a
student is one of our favorites:

"HKN has fundamentally changed the way I lead as a
leader (for the better) and challenged me, persistently,
to be a better engineer, friend, and person."
As we nurture the next generation of engineers who will change our world, thank
you for joining us on the journey. To our alumni and supporters, Faculty Advisors
and Department Heads, chapter officers and members, thank you for all you do
on behalf of Eta Kappa Nu.

We welcome the 2018 leadership team especially our new members of the
Board of Governors and our new Editors-in Chief - Drs. Sahra Sedigh and
Stephen Williams. In addition, we think you will enjoy this issue of THE BRIDGE
which was coordinated by guest editor and new board member Dr. Sean Bentley.
Regards,

Steve E. Watkins				Nancy Ostin
