New Program: SPS Chapter Certifications

The goal and overall intent of the SPS Chapter Certification Program is to diagnose and improve the state of Chapters within the Signal Processing Society to address the actual condition in interest, activity level, membership, rate of recruiting, and general activities of the Society Chapters. The Chapter certificate is valid for 4 years.

Benefits: Chapters which are granted with the Certification will receive in the following year:

  • A certificate of merit plaque to the Chair
  • An appreciation certificate to each officer of the Chapter
  • Once they have their Certificate, the Chair (or his representative) can apply for a travel support grant (up to $500 per Chapter) to attend the next Chapter Chairs Meeting.

Chapters which are granted with the Certification will receive in the following four years during which the Certificate is valid:

  • Visibility at the SPS Webpage
  • More weight for IEEE SPS conferences offering a travel grant.
  • Membership growth reward: Ability to request $50 per new member (up to $500) in additional funding for things such as networking events, poster awards, and food for seminars. The more new members they have the more likely it is that they can get the maximum amount. (Item subject to budget approval)
