Dear IEEE colleagues in Latinamerica:

The IEEE in the XXI Century has a lot of challenges and opportunities, and needs a firm orientation to fulfill its valuable role.

Our Volunteers, Sections and Chapters have to be supported and reinforced in order to continue serving the Humanity through excellence in Electrical and Computer Engineering–in the broadest sense of these words.

Thinking that my contributions could be valuable in these circumstances, specially for Sections in our countries, I have decided to present myself as a candidate for Director Elect of the IEEE Latinamerica -Region 9, for 2014-15 and to serve as Director in 2016-17.

My deepest thanks to all of you who have supported my petition and made this candidacy possible.
It is VERY important now that all the Members vote to elect their authorities, and I urge you to do so.

I encourage you to read these pages, and if you feel comfortable with my views, program and qualifications, and choose to vote for me, rest assured I will employ all my time, effort and knowledge to get the best possible results for all the IEEE Members.

Your insights and questions are welcome at
