IEEE Society/Technical Council Chapters—the local branch of your Society or Technical Council.

 

Definition

Chapters are:

  • the technical sub-unit of one or more IEEE Sections;
  • Society/Technical Council Chapters consist of members from one or more IEEE Societies/Technical Councils who share technical interests and geographical proximity;
  • Chapter activities may include guest speakers, workshops, and seminars as well as social functions;
  • Chapters provide Society members with valuable opportunities to network at a local level, enabling their personal and professional growth;
  • established by petition to the parent geographical and technical organizational units concerned to fulfill the mission of IEEE;
  • formed to serve IEEE members by holding meetings at the local level.

How to create a new IEEE Chapter

There are three different paths one can take to develop an IEEE Chapter: form a new Chapter, form a new joint Chapter, or expand an existing Chapter. Start by researching your area, then decide which route will best suit your needs and support a healthy, active Society/Technical Council Chapter environment.
