IEEE Policies - Section 10 Revisions
The IEEE Board of Directors approved the following revisions to IEEE Policies - Section 10 at its 2018 October meeting. These revisions reflect the best practices and current operations of IEEE Meetings, Conferences & Events (MCE), particularly where policy may have fallen out of sync with current practices. Aligning these operations with practice will lay the groundwork to focus on areas of risk rather than administrative rules and start the process for shifting resources to create better support of our control environment.

OU Analytics User Group
The OU Analytics tool provides IEEE volunteer access to member data. It replaces SAMIEEE which was sunset in May. The OU Analytics User Group was formed to facilitate discussions among users, identify the top issues affecting user productivity, and provide a communication path between users and IEEE staff working to improve OU Analytics. The user group is currently meeting twice a month via WebEx. Meeting notes are published in the “IEEE OU Analytics” group in IEEE Collabratec. If you are interested in participating, contact Chris Gunning (email@example.com) or Larry Hamerman (firstname.lastname@example.org).More information about OU Analytics is available at https://mga.ieee.org/resources-operations/volunteer-tools/samieee
