Recruiting volunteers for a WIE Affinity Group

IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) has a volunteer recruitment toolkit available. It has been developed to provide IEEE Units (Regions, Sections, Societies, Chapters, or Affinity Groups) with ideas for recruiting local IEEE members who may be interested in volunteering their time to help lead IEEE activities.
