The IEEE Foundation is participating in Giving Tuesday [https://www.givingtuesday.org] - a global campaign
 to encourage philanthropy among the IEEE members and friends. This is a great opportunity to support IEEE programs [https://www.ieeefoundation.org/what-to-support].

Donations [give.ieeefoundation.org/givingtuesday] made on 3 December, Giving Tuesday, will fund vital IEEE programs and support the Realize the Full Potential of IEEE Campaign [https://www.ieeefoundation.org/campaign].

Leading technology visionaries are hosting popular panel discussions on the social impact of technology within their respective professions.  Similarly, the IEEE’s History Center is leading the way by bringing the same type of inquiry into secondary education classrooms with the IEEE REACH Program.  IEEE REACH focuses on the social impact of technology through the lens of History and provides teachers with cutting-edge lesson plans designed in an inquiry format that engage students to think like an engineer.  To learn more about the program go to reach.ieee.org, or check out this video, “To Engineer is Human

The IEEE History Center is seeking volunteers to present the IEEE REACH program to their IEEE Sections and to their local school districts and other local organizations interested in education. Kelly McKenna, the REACH Program Manager can provide a PowerPoint and further details to any interested volunteer.  In addition, an in-person presentation by a History Center staff member could be arranged should an organizational unit provide an invitation to do so.  Please contact Kelly McKenna directly with any questions, and with any interest in volunteering.  Kelly may be reached at  k.mckenna@ieee.org.

Nominations are due 15 January annually for the IEEE Technical Field Awards (TFA) and the IEEE Eric Herz Outstanding Staff Member Award.  IEEE TFAs are awarded for contributions to or leadership in a specific field of interest of the IEEE and are among the highest awards presented on behalf of the IEEE Board of Directors.  The IEEE Herz Award recognizes sustained contributions by a present or past full-time staff member of the IEEE with at least ten years of service.

All IEEE members are encouraged to submit a nomination for a worthy candidate within their technical fields.  Nomination guidelines, award-specific criteria, and components of a nomination form can be downloaded from https://www.ieee.org/about/awards/information.html and http://www.ieee.org/about/awards/recognitions/recognitions_herz.html. All nominations must be submitted through the online nomination portal.

Since 1917, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to technical professionals whose exceptional achievements and contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society, the engineering profession, and humanity.  By this means, the image and prestige of the organization, its members, and the profession are all enhanced.
