14 12-CRS /12 IEEE Standards Association Technical community within IEEE that nurtures, develops, and advances global technologies Umbrella under which technical communities can work to devise standards and standards-related activities worldwide

15 12-CRS /12 Society/Technical Council Chapters Technical community within a specific geographic area Consist of members from one or more IEEE Societies/Technical Councils who share technical interests and geographical proximity Chapter activities include: –Guest speakers –Workshops –Seminars –Conferences –Tutorials

16 12-CRS /12 Nurturing & developing a technical community

17 12-CRS /12 Goals in developing a technical community Bring people with similar interests together Disseminate knowledge via conferences, publications, and other activities Motivate volunteers within technical community Network with others within the technical community Promote diversity within the organization Foster leadership development and evolution

18 12-CRS /12 Nurturing worldwide technical communities Organize and participate in technical activities Conferences –Active participation in Society/Technical Council conferences –Paper submission –Paper reviewing –Organizing a new conference –Participating in a technical or organizing committee –Organizing special activities in conferences (competitions, tutorials, special sessions, keynote speakers)

19 12-CRS /12 Nurturing worldwide technical communities Journals –Participate as an editor, author, reviewer, or as a liaison –Organize special issues of journals Education –Organize workshops, lecture series, symposiums, webinars, tutorials, etc. Recognize contributors to community Outreach –Web site –Social media platforms –Newsletters

20 12-CRS /12 Nurturing worldwide technical communities Ensure timeliness of activities within technical community –Incubate new and evolving technical subjects Expand technical community –Foster relationships with other Society/Technical Councils, Chapters, and/or Student Branches, in interdisciplinary areas –Foster relationships with Sister Societies at a worldwide level Embrace and integrate all components of the worldwide technical community –Academy, industry, professionals, students, government employees

21 12-CRS /12 Nurturing worldwide technical communities Nurture diversity within technical community –Technological background and employment; gender; geographical origin; age Nurture future leadership –Train future leaders within technical community –Experienced leaders serve as mentors –Develop young volunteers and provide with increasing responsibilities –Emphasize that volunteer experience should be personally and professionally rewarding and enjoyable

22 12-CRS /12 Nurturing local technical communities Organize and participate in local technical activities –Conferences –Educational activities –Recognition –Outreach Incubate new and emerging technologies and application areas which are of special interest to local area

23 12-CRS /12 Nurturing local technical communities Disseminate knowledge in these special interest areas through activities for the benefit of the local community: –Participate in conferences –Identify key players in your area (distinguished speakers, volunteers, industry partnerships) –Cultivate educational opportunities (webinars, tutorials, symposia, etc.) Nurture diversity within local technical community Embrace and integrate components of local community Nurture future leaders of local community

24 12-CRS /12 Creating a technical community

25 12-CRS /12 Creating a technical community at worldwide level Technical community within a Society/Technical Council –Identify a topic –Relevant for the Society/Technical Council –Broad enough within the scope of the Society/Technical Council –Not overlapping with existing technical communities within the Society/Technical Council –Create the description of topic –Contact the Vice President-Technical Activities and propose the committee –Suggest people who may be interested in participating if technical committee will be established –Suggest possible technical activities
