IEEE is organized into:
The voting membership of IEEE elects a new president each year, who serves for three years - first as President-elect, then as President and CEO, and finally as Past President. IEEE presidents also serve on the two top-tier IEEE governing bodies.
Six subordinate boards govern major areas of IEEE interest. Each has an elected volunteer leader.
IEEE has approximately 1,000 employees who support various IEEE activities. The Executive Director is the full-time chief operating officer.
The Management Council is comprised of the Executive Director and the senior executives who collectively manage all aspects of IEEE staff operations.
