On Friday, 11th Feb 2022, the IEEE PES Student Branch Chapter (SBC) at the University of Manchester held their Annual General Meeting (AGM). This meeting marked the end of an SBC committee’s tenure and the beginning of another. Therefore, for the purpose of this meeting, a detailed review of the activities organised by the out-going committee was presented and a democratic election for the different SBC roles was held.
Mr. Keyi Wang, who is the out-going Chair, highlighted the many successes recorded during his tenure, including organising periodical virtual pub-quiz shows, increasing the SBC’s social media followers and more importantly, the successful virtual hosting of a site visit to the Drax Power Station and the MEEPS conference. Based on these excellent achievements, the SBC was awarded the best IEEE PES SBC for IEEE Region 8 in the special category awards.
