IEEE Brand Ambassador Program
The IEEE Brand is highly valued around the world. To enhance the recognition our brand provides, IEEE has created the IEEE Brand Ambassador Program. The program targets both, staff and volunteers. The program aims to make volunteers more engaged in representing the IEEE brand appropriately, to create a consistent IEEE Brand experience, and to help educate others. While we have a high number of brand ambassadors in Regions 8 and 10, we can further grow the IEEE brand awareness in other Regions.
