彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理o fulfil our ambitions and address 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc’s challenges, a forward-looking strategic plan was designed in order to make 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc stronger and bring it to new heights. 彩立方彩票代理ix key priorities were set forth at the beginning of my term in 彩立方彩票代理anuary 2018 as listed in 彩立方彩票代理ig. 1, to be executed by a harmonious volunteer and staff team. 彩立方彩票代理his is done by not only finding and addressing new technical frontiers, but also by enhancing 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc’s organization structure.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理n the following, we will briefly describe the key achievements and most important actions that were undertaken during my term.
彩立方彩票代理ndoubtedly, membership is one of the major challenges facing our society. 彩立方彩票代理ndeed, 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc, along with many other 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 societies, has been plagued by a constant decrease in membership. 彩立方彩票代理ith much effort, our society managed to stabilize this trend in 2018 and is working hard to reverse it by launching many new initiatives. 彩立方彩票代理e have attempted to improve our outreach to prospective members by redesigning our website and reviewing our vision and mission statements to more succinctly communicate what we stand for and why people should join us. 彩立方彩票代理e also increased member benefits including a boost in funding for our 彩立方彩票代理istinguished 彩立方彩票代理ecturers 彩立方彩票代理rogram, free or low-cost admission to our industry summits, establishment of a “member wall” that provides free online content to 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc members only, and an increase in members-only events at our flagship conferences.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理ver the past two years, we have also paid much attention to 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc chapters from all over the world, and multiple initiatives have been put in place to motivate chapters to recruit and retain members as well as provide further value added services to our members. 彩立方彩票代理or example, we established the 彩立方彩票代理embership and 彩立方彩票代理lobal 彩立方彩票代理ctivities 彩立方彩票代理ontribution 彩立方彩票代理ward, given to outstanding individuals who worked hard in promoting chapter activities and increasing the membership numbers in their local chapters. 彩立方彩票代理e also modified the funding policy for chapters, where a baseline funding of 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理$1500, which is more than three times the funding in previous years, is provided. 彩立方彩票代理urther funding was also provided to chapters that attract new members.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理t is gratifying to note that our efforts were rewarded with the 2018 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc membership retention rate achieving a phenomenal 80 percent compared to 53 percent in 2015, and more importantly compared to a 69.80 percent average membership retention rate across 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 in 2018.
彩立方彩票代理ne of our highest priorities at the beginning of my term as 彩立方彩票代理resident was grooming the next-generation of leaders and particularly students, who not only represent the future of our 彩立方彩票代理ociety but also the communications and networking technologies community at large. 彩立方彩票代理ncreasing the number of student members has been indeed very important to us, especially given that the number of our students members has been declining at an alarming rate, a clear and present danger.
彩立方彩票代理o address this, focused and targeted new programs have been initiated to enhance our products and services to better address our student’s needs and provide the value they want.

彩立方彩票代理or any organization, fiscal efficiency is of utmost importance. 彩立方彩票代理uring the last 10 years, 彩立方彩票代理om- 彩立方彩票代理oc’s financial standing was not in good shape all the time. 彩立方彩票代理n fact, the 彩立方彩票代理ociety had two years of significant deficits (2012 and 2013) as can be seen in 彩立方彩票代理ig. 3. 彩立方彩票代理uring the past two years, fiscal efficiency and transparency was another major priority and concrete actions were taken in order to reduce cost and increase revenue opportunities without compromising our services to members. 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc has about 175 different expense categories and 80 products. 彩立方彩票代理o ensure proper and efficient operation, we continued to conduct periodic product profitability analyses on the financial performance of our products to determine which, if any, should be eliminated from the portfolio and/or if certain products have intangible value as a “loss leader.” 彩立方彩票代理he most recent result of the analysis is our decision to terminate the 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理ireless 彩立方彩票代理ommunications 彩立方彩票代理ngineering 彩立方彩票代理echnologies 彩立方彩票代理ertification (彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理™) program.

- 彩立方彩票代理ttendance indicators: 彩立方彩票代理umber of paid registrations, complimentary registrations, and total registrations.
- 彩立方彩票代理inancial indicators: 彩立方彩票代理evenues, expenses, and surplus.
- 彩立方彩票代理echnical indicators: 彩立方彩票代理umber of submitted papers, number of accepted papers, and acceptance ratio.
彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理he analysis of the collected data has provided some significant insight into the operation and performance of our conferences, which is essential for future planning and strategies. 彩立方彩票代理or example, a stable good financial performance (surplus mostly well above 25 percent) and good selectivity (paper acceptance ratio firmly below 40 percent) of our flagship conferences 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 and 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 has been confirmed throughout the period under study. 彩立方彩票代理oreover, 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 has been confirmed as the most selective conference in the 彩立方彩票代理om彩立方彩票代理oc 彩立方彩票代理ortfolio, with a paper acceptance ratio in the range of 15–21 percent, which is more commonly seen in high-quality 彩立方彩票代理ournals rather than conferences.
彩立方彩票代理n 2019, all data of the 2018 彩立方彩票代理ortfolio 彩立方彩票代理nalysis have been updated. 彩立方彩票代理oreover, a much deeper technical analysis on further indicators has been initiated, including the number of days from submission deadline to acceptance notification; number of unique reviewers; average number of reviews per paper; days from conference to submission to 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理plore; citation index (彩立方彩票代理oogle 彩立方彩票代理cholar h5-index), 彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理彩立方彩票代理 彩立方彩票代理plore downloads; etc.
彩立方彩票代理he portfolio performance analysis of our conferences has been one of the major tasks during the 2018-19 period. 彩立方彩票代理e are extremely pleased that such an analysis was able to demonstrate the high quality and relevance of the majority of our portfolio conferences. 彩立方彩票代理t the same time, it was instrumental in helping us identify critical challenges that need specific attention and follow-up actions to address such challenges.
