Updated Program: SPS Chapter Certifications

Updated Program: SPS Chapter Certifications

The SPS Chapter Certification Program has been reviewed and updated during ICASSP 2018. Certified Chapters will now receive expanded benefits during the 4-year period the certification is valid.

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

  • A certificate of merit to the Chair.
  • An appreciation certificate to each officer of the Chapter.
  • Once they have their Certification, the Chair (or his/her representative) can apply for a travel support grant (up to $1,000 per Chapter) annually to attend the Chapter Chairs Meeting during the four year certification period.  There will be an annual cap of $20K. If limit exceeded, the Regional Directors-at-Large will decide the support.

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

  • Visibility on the SPS Webpage via a rotating banner during the month of certification and a listing of the Certified Chapters.
  • Support and visibility via social media, but excluding conference related events.
  • Visibility in the Chapter News section of the Inside Signal Processing Newsletter.
  • Ability for Certified Chapters to apply for limited travel support to send one Student member from their Chapter to attend ICASSP and/or ICIP to support membership development. There will be an annual cap of $20K.  If limit exceeded, the Regional Directors-at-Large will decide the support.
  • 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).
