Donor Profile

Your Support is Making an Impact

John McWilliams
Nu
Senior Member

Did you know that donors, like you, have enabled IEEE programs
such as IEEE Eta Kappa Nu, to transform countless lives?

Connecting with Future Leaders
through IEEE-HKN

See how donations to the IEEE Foundation help
to illuminate the possibilities of technology by
using it to address global challenges, educate
the next generation of innovators and engineers,
engage a wider audience in appreciating the
value and importance of engineering and
technology, and energize innovation by celebrating
technological excellence. See how philanthropy
drives new levels of technological access,
innovation and engagement through global
initiatives in the 2018 IEEE Foundation Annual
Report: http://bit.ly/2018IEEEFoundationReport


John McWilliams' active relationship with IEEE has delivered both
professional and personal benefits. Working largely on international
projects during the first half of his 40-year engineering career, John
enjoyed exposure to a diverse range of colleagues and ideas as well
as the opportunity to better understand standards and the organizations,
like IEEE, working to develop them.

You can choose to directly support IEEE-HKN or any of the strategically identified IEEE initiatives that help
meet the world's most pressing challenges and help us to realize the full potential of IEEE.

Now working domestically and serving as an ABET program evaluator
for electrical engineering programs, "my primary involvement with IEEE
is with the Engineering Accreditation Commission for the Accreditation
Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)," said John, "but I'm also
a member of several societies and IEEE Eta Kappa Nu (HKN), where I
participate on two committees."
Upon reconnecting with HKN, John learned that the Student Leadership
Conference was being held at Iowa State University (ISU) in Ames,
IA, US, which stirred poignant memories. "I was initiated into the Nu
Chapter of HKN at ISU in 1976 and I remember that the $30 initiation
fee wasn't in my budget," he shared. "My donation to the IEEE-HKN
Student Leadership Fund was my way of helping another student with
a limited budget."

ENGAGE

ENERGIZE

The IEEE Foundation is leading a special campaign to raise awareness,
create partnerships, and generate financial resources needed to combat
these global challenges. Our goal is to raise $30 million by 2020.

My work with
IEEE-HKN and ABET
keeps me connected
to current and
future leaders in
electrical engineering.
The future engineers will
bring entrepreneurial
talents and engineering
skills to jobs that
may not currently exist.
John McWilliams

According to John, "my work with IEEE-HKN and ABET keeps me
connected to current and future leaders in electrical engineering. The
future engineers will bring entrepreneurial talents and engineering skills
to jobs that may not currently exist," he said. "Donating is my way of
giving back to a profession that's helped me lead an interesting life and
encouraging those who will follow after me."
John concluded: "I strongly recommend that IEEE members support
IEEE and its programs, including HKN, as a way to support our
profession's future leaders."

You can choose to directly support IEEE-HKN or any of the strategically
identified IEEE initiatives that help meet the world's most pressing challenges
and help us to realize the full potential of IEEE.
