IEEE-ETA KAPPA NU:

2019 YEAR IN REVIEW

2019 Year in Review: Members Engaged and Inspired
While 2018 was a year of steady growth and
systematic improvements, 2019 was the year
in which IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu saw tremendous
engagement and support from our students,
volunteers and contributors.
And who do we have to thank? You-our
students, alumni, volunteers, partners
and friends in this wonderful endeavor
known as IEEE-HKN. You have given of your
time, talent and treasure to ensure that Eta
Kappa Nu thrives now and well into the future
and continues to support, inspire and educate
the industry's leaders of tomorrow.
In 2019, students were inspired to dedicate 85,000
hours of service to HKN (two chapters logged 10,000
hours of service each). Records were set for the
number of chapters submitting annual reports; the
number of chapters casting votes in the Board of
Governors election; the number of individual activities
reported and attendance at the society's premier
educational and professional development event:
the Student Leadership Conference.

A total of 23 professional members were inducted into the Eta Chapter
in 2019, including this class inducted at Region3's SoutheastCon.

THE BRIDGE

Our Board of Governors worked closely with internal
partners, such as various IEEE Operational Units
and Societies, and external partners, such as the
Electrical and Computer Engineering Department
Heads Association (ECEDHA) to expand learning
and networking opportunities for our students. The
Board of Governors also embarked on a project to
make HKN easily discoverable in the IEEE Rosters
tool so that Region Directors and Sections Leaders
could identify and ultimately work with HKN Chapters
when conducting training and service programming to
better align HKN with IEEE's processes and systems so
there is improved synergy and partnership among the
groups. This project is expected to debut in Q1 2020.
Our partners and benefactors contributed to a
transformational year of giving. For the first time in
its 115-year history, Eta
Kappa Nu has an endowed
award, the Asad M. Madni
Outstanding Technical
Achievement and Excellence
Award, made possible
through a generous donation
from HKN Eminent Member
Asad M. Madni and his
Hulya Kirkici
family and a matching gift
campaign. It is the society's highest award. The first-ever
Student Paper Award, to be presented at the Region 3
SoutheastCon, was made possible through a gift from
HKN Eta Chapter member Hulya Kirkici. Both awards
will be presented for the first time in 2020.
These two endowments were the jumping off
point for a development study to build a strategy
for philanthropic support. This support is critical to
assisting our Chapters and members attain success in
their academic and community service pursuits. The
support is essential to enable more students to attend
the Student Leadership Conference. It is critical to the
strength and vibrancy of the society into the future.
