Event: Annual General Body Meeting

The Annual General Body Meeting (AGM) is an annual event that is conducted with much pomp and circumstance, but due to unforeseen circumstances we were forced to delay it and the time constraints pushed us to conduct it over Google Meet in a restricted fashion. This gave way for the first ever virtual Annual General Body Meeting of IEEE SB GECBH on May 27, 2020. The meeting commenced by the IEEE members reciting the Code of ethics.


Dr. K. Suresh (Principal, GEC Barton Hill) was the Chief Guest for the meeting, which was presided over by our Branch Counselor, Dr. Birenjith P S. During the presidential address, he shared his happiness of being the Branch Counselor and an active IEEE volunteer. He congratulated the previous ExCom for making the year a vibrant one & assured his full support in the coming activities.

The Inaugural address started with our chief guest who is also the Chair, IEEE Signal Processing Society Kerala Section, sharing his experience of being a volunteer at IEEE for the past years. He mentioned the importance and benefits of being a member of this world’s largest technical society dedicated to advancing technologies for the benefit of humanity. He also reminded us how networking can make us work and think for the global good of the society as an engineer, for which we are meant for.


This was followed by presentation of the Annual Report 2019 by the Secretary Ms. Rohini Krishna P. The Chairman of our SB Mr. Ajay Wilson addressed the gathering with his four-year journey as an IEEE active volunteer and shared his batten was handed over to new Chairman Mr. Adhithyaa G, who then introduced the new ExCom for 2020-21.
The occasion was also graced by the felicitations from Dr. Deepthi Sashidharan (Secretary IEEE CS Kerala Section), Mr. Anu Muhammed (Advisor for IEEE APS and MTTS) and Mrs. Josna VR (Advisor for IEEE CS SBC)


During the AGM, we also launched two of our new initiatives. “Tech Spiel”, a web video series was launched by Dr. Deepthi Sashidharan. Through TechSpiel we aim at arranging sessions by our seniors who will be sharing their experience of working in a firm or doing an internship in a reputed institution. It’ll be a great eye-opener for all the SB members as well as the students of our college.


The KEYNOTE, a new initiative by IEEE CS SBC GECBH is monthly newsletter featuring the latest happenings in the tech world, articles by our students, IEEE opportunities, the activities of our SB and includes a fun puzzle as well. This Newsletter was launched by Mrs Josna V R.
