IEEE will soon be extending Concur, the new Volunteer Expense Reimbursement Platform, to IEEE Regions!  Concur is already in use by IEEE Major Boards, Committees, Societies and Technical Councils and the feedback has been very positive.

Concur is a cloud-based expense reporting and reimbursement platform, and is designed to create a fast and efficient electronic expense reimbursement experience for IEEE volunteers.  IEEE's implementation of Concur already delivers volunteers a broad range of benefits, including faster reimbursement and the ability to track real-time status of expense reports. This affects you if you submit expense reports to a Region.

Concur has been introduced in a multi-phased rollout that began in Q4 2018 and is anticipated to extend to Regions in late September.  More information is coming soon, so stay tuned! 

Effective 30 July, Membership Development chairs (or the Section Chair if no one is in that position) will have updated access to order membership development materials. In the case of a student branch, the Branch Chair or Branch Counselor will have access. Eligible officers have already received their sign in credentials to place an order. Please coordinate with these leaders for MD materials. No exceptions will be made.

IEEE Learning Network Article

THE INSTITUTE Finding all the continuing-education programs IEEE offers used to require searching more than 40 websites, platforms, and portals. That’s no longer the case. The new IEEE Learning Network (ILN) is a centralized website that provides access to more than 700 courses, webinars, and eLearning programs.


More than a dozen IEEE groups have provided content so far, including the Computer SocietyFuture Directions, Humanitarian Activities, the Power & Energy Society, and the Standards Association.


 “We are all committed to providing the best possible learning experience to IEEE members and others in the engineering and technical community,” says Witold Kinser, vice president, IEEE Educational Activities. “We are pleased to offer this easy-to-use portal to help people find the IEEE educational content they need to advance in their career.”
