News & Announcements

As a special benefit to IEEE members for the month of April, IEEE-USA will offer “Starting Your Start-up – Book 3: Competitive Analysis,” by Tanya Candia. This e-book is for engineers or entrepreneurs who have a great product or service idea, but no real marketing expertise. It gives advice on how to map out the competitive landscape, discern the product’s compelling value, and sell against any and all competitors. Available 1 April through 15 May.

The IEEE MGA vTools team is happy to announce successful new releases for the following vTools applications:

The 2015 IEEE Panel of Conference Organizers (POCO) will take place 16-18 July, in Glasgow, Scotland. IEEE POCO convenes organizers, volunteer leaders, and decision makers to address conference leadership practices, changes in policies, challenges in the conference landscape, and new conference initiatives. IEEE volunteers involved in conferences can apply to attend as a hosted attendee and receive complimentary registration. Many IEEE organizational units will cover the cost of travel and lodging. Check with your unit as soon as possible for this unique event.

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 part of the January 2015 Board Retreat, IEEE President and CEO Howard Michel convened a diverse group of participants including the IEEE Board of Directors, the executive staff team, and select volunteers to engage in a candid and productive dialogue around IEEE’s future direction and strategy. A three-day retreat resulted in 12 strategic topics, each with recommendations and perceived importance of the recommendations.

One of the trends in publishing is to make research articles publicly available through a process called “open access” (OA). To help ensure that your conference authors can meet open access guidelines from their funding agencies, reviewing the IEEE Author Posting policy may address their concerns and make them comfortable submitting papers to your conference.

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.

Learn more and/or take the risk-management course

MGA would like to thank everyone for submitting their officer, meeting, and financial reports to IEEE in a timely manner. Following review of the reports, the rebates will be completed and distributed to eligible geographic units whose officer, financial, and meeting activity reporting was received complete and subsequently approved.

The Board of Governors of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) has allocated $40,000 for Member-Driven Initiatives for the 2015 calendar year. The funding is open to all Signal Processing Society members, Chapters and Committees. However, all proposals must include the involvement of the local Chapter. Allocation of funds will be competitive.
