The All Ohio Annual Meeting on October 24, 2012 brought 80-plus students and professionals from Wright State, Ohio University, The Ohio State University, Youngstown University, Columbus Chapter and Dayton Chapter. As part of the event all new chapter officers participated in the installation ceremony led by Don Greene, IIE's chief executive officer. A special addition to the event was a panel discussion with the Council on Industrial Engineering (CIE), a group of highly recognized Industrial Engineers around the world. A reoccurring theme throughout the discussion was that skills of Industrial Engineers can be applied in any industry and that today's global problems go beyond applying lean thinking, they require a strong operations research background.
