  • Dear IEEE CPMT members,

    Our current chapter chair Hamit Duran moves to Dallas/Texas for a new assignment at Texas Instruments. With this relocation he will resign as CPMT chapter chair by end of February 2014.

    I'd like to take the opportunity to thank Hamit for his exceptional contribution within IEEE CPMT. With his enthusiastic personality and high commitment he acted as chair since June 2009. Under his leadership eight successful workshops and company visits with many interesting technical presentations have been organized at various locations.

    The election of the new IEEE CPMT Switzerland management team member is planned for the next general assembly. We will inform you timely about the schedule and procedure.

           Kind Regards,

           Daniel Thommen
