Also in attendance were visitors from different parts of the world, including Region Directors, the IEEE President, the IEEE Executive Director, IEEE staff, and volunteers from Societies, committees, and boards. Each came to teach us and share opportunities. This was an intensive meeting where we tried to use our time productively and set great expectations moving forward. It was a remarkable meeting, and Panama will live in our memories.

At the end of the meeting, the Regional Life Member Individual Service Award (2022) and the Regional Life Members Affinity Group Award (2022) were given to Life Member Gustavo Adrián del Pino, by Saifur Rahman, IEEE President and Enrique Tejera, IEEE Region 9 Director.
