VoLT Track 1 period ended 9 July 2019
2019 IEEE Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT) - The MGA Training Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2019 Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT).
Participation Criteria - VoLT targets volunteers who have a true desire to learn about the broader IEEE and are considering taking leadership positions within their local units and roles in IEEE committees. IEEE volunteers with 2+ years of volunteer experience in their local units and who have not held a Section Chair position are highly encouraged to participate. The program runs in two phases as described below. Please read the information carefully.
Track 1 - Volunteers who completed Track 1 within May 28 and July 9 can apply for consideration for Track 2.
Track 2 - After completing Track 1, volunteers will receive an email notification in July 2019 with a link to complete an application form, completion deadline, and other details of the program. Track 2 candidates need to send an endorsement note (e.g., email or word file) signed by either his/her Region Director, Section Chair, Chapter Chair, or local Committee Chair. We may consider endorsements from other IEEE volunteer leaders on a case-by-case basis. The endorsement is a short note by a volunteer leader who knows you and believes the program will be beneficial to you. Send an endorsement only if you completed Track 1 and received the email with the program application link. Please note that participation in the program requires a time commitment of 4-8 hours a month. All final participants and mentors will be notified in August 2019.
Track 2 will run from early September thru early December 2019. During these 3 months, participants will have weekly live webinars focused on leadership related topics. They will have a mentor and will work on a project assignment as part of a team.
