On behalf of society members, I would like to thank Prof. Jian-yu Lu, the 2014-15 President of the Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society (UFFC-S), for the precise and orderly manner by which he steered the society over the past two years.
The society continued to thrive under Jian-yu’s leadership, with six successful symposia, important updates to our website, and advances in educational activities that include significant increases in student support funds for our symposia and a threefold increase in the number of UFFC-S Distinguished Lecturers. Thanks to advances made during Jian-yu’s tenure, we also now enjoy the use of technologies at our symposia that enable recording of presentations for subsequent dissemination on IEEE Xplore.
Jian-yu is far from finished, of course, as he will continue to serve the UFFC-S as the Nominations Chair and Junior Past President. He will also head a special committee to update the society ByLaws.
Jian-yu: Thanks for the super job! We wish you all the best.
Prof. Clark T.-C. Nguyen, Fellow IEEE
