Section officers can spread the word that IEEE offers a FREE online course especially designed for entrepreneurs and independent consultants. The course, called IEEE Risk Management for Engineers, examines the risk-management process including defining and measuring risk, exposure identification and risk analysis, risk responses, risk mitigation, and the value of contracts and professional liability insurance.

Marketing your conference, global hotel partnership program

The IEEE Meetings, Conferences & Events (MCE) Conference Education Program is offering the following upcoming webinars:

Marketing Your Conference: Better Event E-mail Invites in 7 Easy Steps

Here are three facts to tell members about the IEEE Member Discounts Program:

  1. Discounted products and services and insurance are not just in the US anymore.
  2. IEEE members can buy at better rates than the public any day, not just when there is a sale.
  3. When you get benefits from Member Discounts, they are yours even when you change jobs.

In addition, when IEEE members participate in Member Discounts, IEEE earns royalties. So the greater the participation, the more Member Discounts contributes to IEEE revenue to help defer other costs.

As a special benefit to IEEE members for the month of May, IEEE-USA will offer "Doing Innovation – Book 4: What It Takes To Be an Innovator" -- by Gerard H. “Gus” Gaynor. This e-book focuses on a critical element of innovation -- the Innovator. What do innovators bring to an organization? What characteristics and attitudes do they display? Available 1 May through 15 June.

Get your free e-book (log in to your IEEE Account, add book to your cart, and use promo code MAYFREE at checkout)

Now IEEE SPS has built a streamlined mechanism for employers to add a job announcement by simply filling in a simple job opportunity submission Web form at the related TC section pages.

To submit job announcements for a particular Technical Committee, the submission form can be found by visiting the page below and clicking on a particular TC. A link for the form can be found in the sidebar menu of the TC pages. Jobs can also be viewed from its individual TC pages or a combined listing that includes all TC jobs.

In order to protect endangered rhinos, the Kenya Wildlife Service has recently teamed up with the US-based Stimson Center and Linköping University in Sweden in a project called Ngulia, named after the Kenyan rhino sanctuary where the technology is to be implemented. The aim is to investigate how new technology and signal processing algorithms can be combined to create a smart savannah and to help stamp out poaching.
