The Society's Distinguished Industry Speaker (DIS) Program provides means for chapters to have access to individuals who are recognized experts with a background in industrial applications in the signal processing area and are well versed in the ongoing issues/activities in industry, to lecture at Chapter meetings. Distinguished Industry Speakers will supplement the regular Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Program and will closely mirror the DL Program. The main difference and goal of the Distinguished Industry Speakers Program is to educate and interact with Society members about topics that are of primary importance to industry and the signal processing community-at-large. The speakers will focus their presentations on industrial applications of interest to practicing engineers and stress practical issues. The Distinguished Industry Speakers will be available to all SPS Chapters, as are DLs, but lectures will be focused on current and future issues, applications and/or activities in industry.

The Society provides an allotment up to $3,500 per SPS Chapter annually to use towards scheduling Society appointed Distinguished Industry Speakers, provided they are pre-approved by the Chapters Coordinator. The allotment is to help defray speaker travel expenses. Any unused balance from one year does not carry over to the next.
The Society also provides support for coffee breaks and other small social gathering in conjunction with meetings up to $500 per SPS Chapter annually. Please note that funding will be done on a reimbursement basis and funds must be pre-approved by the Senior Manager, Operations, Theresa Argiropoulos.
