The purpose of the IEEE Public Visibility Initiative is to increase public understanding of how engineering, computing, and technology benefit humanity and position IEEE as the world’s trusted source for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.

An integral part of the program is globally positioning IEEE members to the media as technical experts (TEs), where they serve as spokespeople and can share their technical expertise and insight on technology topics.

Below is some information about becoming a technical expert and participating in the IEEE Public Visibility Initiative.
How do I apply to be a technical expert?

If you are interested in becoming a technical expert and participating in the program, fill out a Technical Expert submission form. You will then be contacted to discuss your background and expertise to determine how you might help contribute to the program.

What does a technical expert do?

TEs help support numerous campaigns and initiatives:

•    Provide commentary on breaking news to share with media
•    Draft thought-leadership byline articles
•    Participate in Hot Topic–related media interviews (phone, in-person)
•    Feature thought leadership in videos
•    Join in Google Hangouts and social media Ask Me Anythings (AMAs)
•    Attend industry events including CES, Mobile World Congress, and Web Summit
