The IEEE Shreveport Section, a section member of IEEE Region 5, was formed in 1947. It had served engineers in Southwestern Arkansas, Northeast Texas, and North Louisiana down to Natchitoches County and is ideally defined as a small section. Geographically, it is at a disadvantage since its members are spread out throughout the section. Since its founding, the IEEE Shreveport Section struggled to exist due to its geographical disadvantage. This presentation covers the history of the IEEE Shreveport Section, its struggles and recent revival due to new initiates that are being undertaken that suits our unique situation.
