Innovation happens when we work together. We recently achieved an important milestone as an organization: Bringing together on one platform access to over 300 local IEEE Sections, personalized to each of our 400,000+ members globally. 

IEEE Sections are valued and vibrant communities across the IEEE global network.  Available exclusively to IEEE Members, all IEEE Sections now have a dedicated gateway on IEEE Collabratec that showcase local networks, activities, and opportunities. Linked on the Member’s profile upon log-in, gateway resources include:

           Link to the IEEE Section’s website

           New IEEE Members to the Section, as they opt into the IEEE Member Directory

           Upcoming events organized by the Section, and conferences within geographic proximity of your Section

           Listing of the IEEE Volunteer leadership who make great things happen in the Section

           Recognition of Members in the Section who have advanced in membership grade

           Recognition of Members who have received badges for their participation on Collabratec

           Collabratec communities and workspaces in which Members of the Section participate

The gateway experience is consistent for Members should they move from one Section to another -- and offers our Student Members a persistent connection with their IEEE Section during their time of study, and as they embark upon their professional careers.

Attn: Section Chairs, Section Student Activities Chairs, and Section Student Representatives

As a result of the changes in the MGA Operations Manual, Section 9.4:  

In Sections with at least one Student Branch, it is recommended that the Section ExCom select a Section Student Activities Chair (SSAC) and a Section Student Representative (SSR) as voting members of the Section ExCom. The SSAC is an active Section member of Graduate Student Member Grade or above while the SSR is an active Student Member or Graduate Student Member in a Student Branch of the Section.

As of Thursday, 16 August, anyone joining IEEE becomes a member for the 2019 membership year. This is a valuable time to promote IEEE membership because any new member that joins in September receives an additional four months of membership at no extra cost.

With help from members in Region 10, a new app to help IEEE members identify IEEE events or conferences has been released. The app will use the geolocation feature of the user's phone to identify events happening nearby.

Using the search functionality allows the user to find events by:

  •     Event/Conference title
  •     Date and event types
  •     City
  •     State/province
  •     Country/Region
  •     Regions
  •     Sections
  •     Chapters
  •     IEEE sponsoring Societies/Councils

"My assessment of the mobile app is that it is well done," states Mike Fallenstein, IEEE Region 4 Communications Committee Chair. "It is easy and intuitive to navigate. It has a very modern feel to it like the newer apps released by other companies. There will always be enhancements that will be wanted by users, but I think this is really excellent for a first release."

Download the free app from the Apple iTunes or Google Play store.
