The audience participation was strong, with over seventy people present at the meeting’s peak.
The meeting was divided into two parts, each having its own agenda. The first segment’s goal was to celebrate the past executive body panelists from 2019, 2020, and 2021 who had dedicated their time and effort to the advancement of the IEEE Brac University Student Branch. Professor A.K.M Abdul Malek Azad, Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Brac University, was present during this section as the esteemed Founder and Counselor of IEEE Brac University Student Branch. Accompanying him were chapter advisors: Md. Khalilur Rahman, IEEE Brac University Robotics and Automation Society student branch chapter; Annajiat Alim Rasel, IEEE Brac University Computer Society Student Branch Chapter; and Abdulla Hil Kafi, IEEE Brac University Aerospace and Electronic Systems Student Chapter. Respected counselor and advisors delivered their valuable words to the newcomers and encouraged them to participate actively in the IEEE Brac University Student Branch. Afterward, certificates and crests were handed out to the former executive body panelists. This was a token of appreciation from the IEEE Brac University Student Branch to the former panelists for the time and dedication they had put into this organization.
The second section’s program included inaugurating the IEEE Brac University Student Branch and its chapters to the general audience. This featured both past and future events for the branch. Highlights from each chapter were methodically presented to energize general members. Starting with the Power and Energy Society (PES) at Brac University SBC, the following societies were appended: the Computer Society (CS) at Brac University SBC, the Robotics and Automation Society (RAS) at Brac University SBC, and the Aerospace and Electronic Systems (AESS) at Brac University SBC.
This spirited gathering came to a close with the chair’s remarks. The Chair’s statements were followed by a Question-and-Answer session where the audience asked their queries and also provided their invaluable feedback. Pleasantries were exchanged between the panel and the crowd, bringing a lively general body meeting to a finale.
