The Chapter Chair Training Session provides a forum for focused training to the Chapter Chairs, the opportunity to discuss chapter issues and get group feedback. Additionally, the session gives the Chapter Chairs the opportunity to meet other Chapter Chairs from around the world and for the Chapter Coordinator to disseminate important information from IEEE headquarters and the EMC Society Board of Directors.
A Social Session will precede the Dinner to give the Chapter Chairs the opportunity to socialize with the other Chapter Chairs and their Angels.
The Dinner will be served at the end of the Social Session. Besides a great meal, each Chapter Chair or their representatives will have the opportunity to share what their chapter has been doing for the past year.
After the Dinner, an interactive brainstorming session will conclude the meeting. This session is intended to allow participants to exchange information and new ideas for effective chapter management, as well as to discuss best practices and suggestions for future development and growth of the EMC chapters.
This is a free event open to Chapter Chairs or their representatives. Please check with your Chapter Chair, as you can be that representative for your chapter if your Chapter Chair cannot attend this event.

Abstract: We are at an inflection point as the value of women is truly recognized. It can be easily seen in the roles of women in recent movies, the actions taken by the courts, and the actions of companies big and small. Attitudes are changing, and opportunities are available. The presentation makes these points, gives a historical perspective, and provides tools to navigate through the quickly changing relationships of men and women at work.

Interested in exploring some of Long Beach, California on bike with your fellow EMCS members? Join us for the 7th annual Team EMC bike ride and experience the area in a refreshing way. We will host two levels of escorted riding: Leisure and Performance. This year’s route includes several options: paved bike path along the beach, surface streets along the Alamitos Peninsula to a turnaround at Alamitos Park, Rainbow Harbor and the Los Angeles River Bike Path. The Performance ride is approximately 20 – 30 miles or about 1.5 to 2.0 hours. Portions of the ride are easily shortened since much of this is an out and back type route, so the Leisure riders will turn around and head back at an agreed upon location.
A Team EMC jersey will be included for 1st-time participants on a first come first serve basis, while quantities last. Rental bikes are available from Cloud of Goods with delivery to the Hyatt on Wednesday night (rental includes a hybrid bike, helmet and lock). Synaptic Cycles offers rentals of higher grade road bikes with delivery and pick-up, but a 4-day minimum rental is required.

Friday, August 3 • BUS DEPARTS FROM LONG BEACH CONVENTION CENTER AT 12:00 PM
TOUR THE FAMOUS JET PROPULSION LAB (JPL)!
California Institute of Technology • Pasadena, CA
The JPL technical tour begins in the von Karman auditorium where attendees will get an overview / history of JPL and watch the movie Journey to the Planets and Beyond. From there, visitors will enjoy the von Karman museum, which exhibits models of spacecraft, touch-screen monitors, and items such as meteorites from the comet Vesta and a moon rock. Two facilities that are often visited on a tour of JPL are the Spacecraft Assembly Facility and the Space Flight Operations Facility. The Spacecraft Assembly Facility is where the JPL technicians and engineers are currently assembling the Mars 2020 spacecraft. The Spacecraft Assembly Facility is a clean room facility. It is a class 10,000 room, which means per cubic foot there are 10,000 or fewer dust particles. Technicians and engineers wear “bunny suits” to keep the spacecraft from coming in contact with hair and skin. The Space Flight Operations Facility is where JPL has the Deep Space Network. Developed and managed by JPL, the Deep Space Network monitors radio transmissions to determine the health and precise location of each spacecraft, as well as data from the instruments aboard. Also on the tour is the Mars Yard where the Mars Rover test bed is located. The test bed is used to test drive a Mars Rover test vehicle to simulate conditions on Mars.
The JPL tour is scheduled for 2 PM on Friday, August 3, 2018. The tour is limited to 50 people at a cost of $40.00 per person. The tour length is estimated to be 2.5 hours. Buses will depart from the Long Beach Convention Center promptly at 12:00 PM for JPL, so be there on time. Snacks will be provided on the return trip. For more information on JPL, visit www.jpl.nasa.gov.
