15 IEEE launched Beta release of IEEE.TV on August 15. An internet-based broadcasting network that produce and deliver prerecorded, special-interest programming for engineers and technologists. Programs are available for members-only and general public. IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006 RAB GOLD Committee is brainstorming on the kind of TV programs that interest young professionals and recent graduates. The outcome will be reported to RAB in Nov.

16 Purpose of the GOLD program Consider the customers! To provide a choice avenue for our members to acquire skills that enhance their employability and quality of life. To provide opportunities for our members to network and develop meaningful friendship. To offer our members a safe environment to discover their talents and train themselves. IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

17 Satisfied customers will eventually retain their membership. Not only so. But, through word of mouth, more recent graduates and young professionals will get to know IEEE and GOLD, and naturally become part of this community. IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

18 Question IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006 Consider the parent organization. How relevant is GOLD to IEEE? In what ways? - Reach and Bridge -

19 There are still some challenges! It continues to be difficult to retain the recent graduates and young professionals. There isn't one clear solution but a combination of actions that will deliver results in the long run if we remain steadfast and faithful. IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

20 Identified weaknesses of GOLD at the RAB level No product or services that sufficiently attracts the majority of the recent graduates and young professional to continue their IEEE membership Poorly defined operations at the RAB GOLD Committee Lack of collaboration between GOLD and other IEEE entities 1.IEEE Mentoring Program (to be launched in July/Aug '06) 1.GOLD Online Seminars (3 times a year) 1."Expert Now" Tutorial (by Carl Selinger, first sample available in Sept '06) 1.defined mission and vision statements 1.redefined GOLD's target audience 1.proposed a new committee structure Rework the GOLD Charter 1.GOLD/Societies Pilot project 1.invited GOLD reps from the major boards to be in the GOLD RAB Committee. 1.GOLD/SAC task force IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

21 Possible weaknesses of GOLD at the Section (AG) level Operations Are there clearly defined goals and well established committee structure? Collaboration Is there close relationship with the Section, Chapters, and student branches? ? ? Publicity/Marketing? Product / Services Is there an annual event that specially meets the needs or attracts GOLD members in your section? IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

22 Two questions for you to ponder 1.What are the weaknesses in your AG that prevent it from taking flight? 2.Do you really desire your AG to soar? IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006

23 Thank you IEEE Region 8 Student & GOLD Congress, Paris, 1 September 2006
