20th of January 2019 started with the IEEE Student body’s advent of recruiting fresh cohorts for the year’s activities in the ground floor of UB6 of BRAC University’s Mohakhali Campus. The campaign ran for three days and came to a fruitful end on the 22nd of January. The primary motive of the campaign was to sign up fresh faces for IEEE student membership and renew the membership of existing members. The secondary objective was to motivate more students to join the PES (Power and Energy Society) that was initiated by the IEEE student body last year and get new members to initiate CS (Computer Society) that is about to be initiated by the IEEE student body this year.
The EB members and volunteers from the existing IEEE student members took separate time slots attending the campaign booth and catered to the queries of the potential recruits. The curious students who dropped by were provided with a basic understanding of IEEE and the IEEE student body and its activities. They were also educated about CS and PES and encouraged to join in order to be connected to the respective communities and reap their benefits. They were also offered leaflets and brochures for an enhanced understanding .The campaign ended with immense success as a record number of 174 members signed up for IEEE membership; including 30 PES and 40 CS recruits.
The enrollment of such an unprecedented number of IEEE members surely promises an eventful and exciting year ahead for the student branch. It also ignites new pathways for the newly conceived PES and CS wings.
