A Tribute to Jackie Hines, 2012-2013 President

Jacqueline Hines

I would like to thank Jackie Hines, the 2012-2013 President of the IEEE Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control Society (UFFC-S), for her contributions during her tenure as President.

Under her leadership, the society continues to thrive. In 2012, three successful symposia were held. In 2013, a joint conference to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the UFFC-S was held successfully in Prague, Czech Republic. The UFFC-S website got a major face lift.

The society continues to maintain its healthy financial status and new technologies have been used in both the symposia and the Administrative Committee (AdCom) meetings.

Jackie will continue to serve the UFFC-S in different roles as the UFFC-S Nominations Chair and Junior Past President, 2014-2015. She will also be the Finance Chair of the 2014 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium (IUS).

Jackie, well done! On behalf of UFFC Society, I wish you all the best.

Jian-yu Lu, Ph.D., Fellow of IEEE
2014-2015 President
