The IEEE Society Chapter Coordinator Roster lists contact information for each Society's chapter coordinators.
The Chapter Chairs' Reference Guide (PDF, 311 KB) is intended to assist you in your role as a Chapter Officer. It will explain your responsibilities as a Chapter Officer and give guidelines for the conduct of business and activities. The handbook has been organized to reduce the time required to find answers. Please contact IEEE Section/Chapter Support Staff if you have suggestions on how to improve the organization and/or content of the handbook.
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.
In order to maintain viability and to ensure that all Chapters are meeting the needs of their members, each Chapter is required to submit annual reports.
