been one of the most valuable features
of the conference. The only deficiency,
the number of undergraduates attending the program, is still relatively small
compared to the number of participating graduate students. Securing funding for such a large number of students
is also a problem, but we have been able
to provide for the program every year.
Our growing Scholarship Plus Initiative
is also beginning to expand globally
and is already well established in the
United States. This year, 549 scholarships were distributed to 390 students
from 136 universities across the nation.
PES benefits extend, of course, beyond
student members.
Our Resource Center, accessible on
the Web at www.pes-shop.org, offers
free access to over 1,300 PES technical reports, PDF tutorials, slides, and
videos. All members are entitled to the
material free of charge upon login. Over
3,850 downloads have been recorded
since 1 January, but the Resource

Center still remains one of the secrets
that PES would not like to keep! Please
visit! The assortment is growing rapidly, and it is skillfully managed by our
new Governing Board member, Nando
Ochoa of the University of Manchester,
United Kingdom.
PES presence in social media has
been reinforced by the Smart Grid Initiative, smartgrid.ieee.org, whose management and financial support have
become the responsibility of PES under the inspired leadership of Massoud
Amin of the University of Minnesota.
Its various communities are rapidly
growing, and total membership now
exceeds the number of PES members
worldwide (over 5,500 technical community members, 11,000+ newsletter
subscribers, 23,500+ LinkedIn Group
members, and over 8,000 followers on
Twitter). The PES Facebook page has
had 11,243 members as of June 2014!
PES volunteer Juan Carlos Montero
has greatly contributed to its success,

and he continues to frequently refresh
its content with late-breaking news and
other information of relevance.
At the members meeting, we also reviewed the report created by the IEEE
Joint Task Force for Quadrennial Energy
Review (QER) in response to the request from U.S. Department of Energy, which is tasked with evaluating
QER accomplishments. The report
is now available on the PES Web site.
Several PES and IEEE-USA members have contributed to the report,
coordinated under the leadership of
PES President-Elect Damir Novosel.
With information on so many activities
in cyberspace, organization of conferences, publications, and educational
activities, our time at the Members
Meeting was quickly consumed. It
was my intent to provide the attendees
with information about the benefits of
which at least some of them may not
have been aware and get them excited
to try them. I hope that at least a few
