Brief History of the SA Section

IEEE South Australia Section was chartered in 1986 with Dr Don Sinnott (FIEEE) the Foundation Chair. Since that time it has grown steadily in membership and activity from 154 (1987) to nearly 500 today (see Membership statistics). It is one of the smaller Sections numerically within Australia, and is larger than Nth Australia and ACT Sections.
