The IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence Committee shall provide oversight for the design and delivery of content materials in the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence. The committee shall:
The committee will engage with IEEE organizational units to ensure their volunteer community is properly supported in the CLE.
The MGA Finance Committee serves as an oversight and advisory body. The Committee establishes financial goals and procedures for MGA operations; develops and implements the MGA budget development process; and projects and monitors the financial performance of member and geographic activities.
The MGA Geographic Unit Operations Support Committee is responsible for design, development, and implementation of the support model for the geographic units. The committee also recommends policy for effective operation of the geographic units.
The MGA GOLD Committee serves the interests of IEEE members characterized as GOLD (Graduates of the Last Decade).
The MGA IEEE.tv Advisory Committee provides on-going strategic planning as it relates to IEEE.tv and its related activities. The primary mission of the committee is to provide IEEE.tv staff with insight from industry and from membership/volunteer perspectives regarding various aspects of Internet television production, presentation, and marketing. The committee is a crucial source of insights about business issues and concerns, production development needs, and member service requirements.
The MGA IT Coordination and Oversight Committee is responsible for collecting IT requirements for MGA and coordinating/advocating their design, development, deployment, training, and usage.
The IEEE Life Members Committee (LMC) is responsible to the IEEE Foundation for stimulating and monitoring contributions to the Life Members Fund. Projects that receive Life members funds are to be consistent with the interests of IEEE Life members. The committee is responsible to the MGA Board for promoting the interests of Life members and other older members.
The MGA Member Benefits Portfolio Advisory Committee (MBPAC) transitioned in early 2013 from the previous MGA Individual Benefits and Services Committee (IBSC). MBPAC provides advice and recommendations for the composition of IEEE's member benefits portfolio excluding technical society benefits. MBPAC coordinates with organizational units to review and assess member benefits and recommend to the MGA Board the adoption or removal of such benefits based upon a formal benefits development and assessment process. MBPAC acts as advisors to the Member Benefits and Services Assessment Team, a cross-functional team of IEEE professional staff, on the development and implementation of the member benefits development and life-cycle process. The Member Discounts Roadmap and the Career Services Roadmap will be monitored under this committee as well.
The MGA Member Engagement and Life Cycle Committee (MELCC) is responsible for establishing programs that facilitate growth and development of the member and IEEE.
The following committees report to the MGA Board through the MELCC:
The MGA Membership Recruitment and Recovery Committee inspires and coordinates volunteer activities worldwide, with the objective of increasing and improving member recruitment and arrears-recovery of IEEE memberships.
The MGA Nominations and Appointments Committee is responsible for managing the nominations and appointments process and identifying qualified candidates based on the common characteristics and skills defined for elected and appointed positions of the MGA Board and its committees.

The MGA Potentials Editorial Board provides undergraduate and graduate students who are members of IEEE with an IEEE publication to address global issues, career-development topics, and other topics, emphasizing the value of continuing IEEE membership after graduation. These are members of IEEE with an interest in the IEEE designated fields or related professions, and IEEE needs to provide them with opportunities for educational, technical, and professional development.
The MGA Sections Congress Committee is responsible for the organization of the triennial Sections Congress.
The MGA Strategic Direction and Environmental Assessment Committee is responsible for the development and continuous assessment of the strategic direction of MGA (the member and the IEEE geographic units).

The MGA Student Activities Committee provides undergraduate and graduate students who have an interest in the IEEE designated fields or related professions with opportunities for educational, technical, and professional development, emphasizing the value of continuing IEEE membership.
The MGA vTools Committee works with the MGA IT Coordination and Oversight Committee and MGA Geographic Unit Operations Support Committee to develop solutions to assist geographic unit volunteers, develop and deliver training modules for developed solutions, and migrate solutions to normal IEEE IT operations. The committee also provides technical support to all MGA committees as requested. The vTools toolbox simplifies geographic unit administration by offering Web-based software, reduces time spent managing activities, and assists in member development.
