Continue to evaluate IEEE's potential for sustainable influence and impact on improving the quality of life for underserved populations. In 2013, the Committee's work will be focused on building local engineering capacity through workforce development, community engagement, and thought leadership and advocacy. The Committee will also continue to develop a comprehensive set of recommendations, including a long-term business model, to operationalize IEEE's future work in this area. These recommendations are slated to come before the IEEE Board of Directors in June 2014. The Committee will provide progress reports at each of the 2013 meetings of the Board.
