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.

From 21 December 2018 through 31 January 2019, the IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) is soliciting proposals to support Sustainable Development and Humanitarian Technology initiatives that align with the IEEE Board-endorsed vision of IEEE volunteers carrying out and/or supporting impactful humanitarian activities at the local level. HAC provides multiple opportunities for IEEE individuals and organizational units (OUs) to apply for and receive funding for projects, events, and conference participation support. 

When you give the gift of an IEEE membership, you’re helping someone you care about build a platform for success. 

 

That’s because IEEE delivers access to the industry's most essential technical information, provides both local and global networking opportunities, offers career development tools, and gives discounts on conference registrations and insurance programs, as well as many other exclusive member benefits.
