Selection Committee Chair, joins Karen Strgacich of the Long
Beach Area Convention & Visitors Bureau, Ray Adams, Los
Angeles EMC Chapter Chair, and Carolyn Brown also of the Long
Beach CVB (from left), following their presentation on Long
Beach as the potential site of the 2011 IEEE EMC Symposium.
I am pleased to announce the selection of Long
Beach, California as the site for the 2011 IEEE International
Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility. The dates will be
2214 through August 2619, 2011. The EMC Society approved the
selection of the Long Beach site at its November 2006 Board of
Directors meeting. The Board was pleased to have two very good
sites from which to choose.
The Board of Directors heard the site presentations at the August
Board meeting. Ray Adams of Fischer Custom Communications, Inc.
and Chair of the Los Angeles EMC Chapter presented the Long Beach
site and Michael Oliver of MAJR Products Corporation and Chair
of the new Pittsburgh EMC Chapter presented the Pittsbugh site.
Both presentations were excellent and very complete. I would like
to thank Michael and his crew for their application and hope they
will apply for 2012.
The Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center will be the
venue for 2011 and the Hyatt Regency Long Beach will be the host
hotel. I hope you will join me in wishing Ray and the crew from
Los Angeles much success in their efforts to produce a world class
