Geographic Unit Resources

IEEE local geographic organizational units - regions, sections, chapters, student branches, and affinity groups - provide unique opportunities for members to attend technical presentations, create strong peer-to-peer connections, and participate in leadership opportunities that can make a positive distinction in IEEE members' jobs and careers.

There are many different types of local units throughout IEEE

Every member is automatically assigned to a local Section, based on where the individual resides.

The Section can have many Technical Chapters or Affinity Groups which give members the opportunity to network and participate in activities within their discipline or interest.
