Updated call for participation: 2015 Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VOLT): Deadlines 24 August and 4 September

In early July, the Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VOLT) for 2015 was announced, and includes two tracks.

Track 1 covers the foundational knowledge of the IEEE organization. These materials were made available to all IEEE volunteers through the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) website.

Access Track 1 courses (Log in with your IEEE Account and choose the “Volunteer Leadership Training Pre-Requisite” category to begin)

Volunteers who complete these foundational courses in the CLE by 24 August can apply for consideration for Track 2 of the VOLT Program, scheduled to start in mid-September and end early December 2015.

The VOLT team is looking for 50 volunteers to participate in this year’s program. Track 2 will focus on leadership related topics, and provide practical leadership experience volunteers can apply in their professional and personal environments. It is geared towards volunteers who have not been a Section Chair within their units, have at least two years of experience as IEEE volunteers, and meet the specified criteria.

Complete the Candidate Application Form

Application forms must be submitted by 4 September 2015.  The final selection will be completed and announced prior to the start of the program in early September 2015.

Email questions to Maria Schneider, MGA Program Manager at m.t.schneider@ieee.org

Please share this information with all volunteers who you think may be interested or would benefit from this training experience.
