The IEEE Ad Hoc Committee on Corporate Engagement was formed in 2013. Information related to the scope, membership, activity reports, and other information is provided here.
Access to Committee reports and related activity information is limited to members of the Committee, the IEEE Board of Directors, IEEE Directors-Elect (IEEE Account required), and select IEEE staff (IEEE email address and domain password required).
Charge: The IEEE Ad Hoc Committee on Corporate Engagement shall explore, evaluate, and bring forward models that engage industry as a strategic partner of IEEE through a Corporate Membership mechanism. Engagement plans may include bundled individual membership, access to select content, active participation in thought-leader events and social innovation programs, special activities in IEEE conferences, development of connections to student branches and IEEE-HKN chapters, and other activities that can stimulate corporate support of IEEE and participation in IEEE activities. The Committee will review current and previous experiments undertaken by IEEE and other peer organizations to serve this constituency and assess how these experiments can inform the design of new engagement models. The Committee should interact with target customers to develop requirements. It should consider the impact of geographic and cultural differences in key markets on potential offerings and pricing. In 2013 the committee is expected to develop a Corporate membership pilot with the participation of four to ten companies.
