Continuing its successful multi-year year implementation, the MGA 2019 Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT) is set to launch on 5 September 2019, with a class of 66 volunteers, 63 mentors, 15 sessions and 12+ speakers.

The Members & Geographic Activities (MGA) Board agreed to pilot the program in 2013, with 19 graduates, and later approved its implementation. Since then, the VoLT program continues to thrive, boasting over 250 graduates by end of 2018. VoLT graduates represent all IEEE Regions and over 100 Sections.

“From the start, the purpose of the VoLT program has been to empower volunteers to become more engaged, take positions of leadership within their units and later within the larger IEEE,” said Loretta J Arellano, a senior IEEE Volunteer from Region 6 and the program founder.
