2. IEEE Governing Documents MGA Operations Manual Section 9 Geographic Organizational Units The basis of governance by which Geographic Units should be managed is through the Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Operations Manual. If required by local law, Sections and Geographic Councils may also create their own addendum/bylaws, using the MGA Operations Manual as a guideline. Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Operations Manual
Addendum or document in conflict with MGA Operations manual - submit a request for exception to the Region Director who will present the item to the MGA Board for action. Addendum or document NOT in conflict with MGA Operations manual - submit a request for approval to the Region Director. Any questions?
Changes to the Geographic Unit Formation Petition Process – Effective 1 Jan 2012 Affects petitions for Sections, Subsections, Chapters, or Affinity Groups. The petition organizer is responsible for communicating their intent to begin the petition process with the geographic parent’s executive committee, prior to gathering signatures on a petition. Prior to submission of the completed petition to MGA staff, the organizer must obtain the signed endorsement on the new geographic unit petition form from a member of the geographic parent’s executive committee. This step ensures awareness of the organizer’s intent and their willingness to coordinate efforts with the geographic parent. The organizer shall complete a business plan summary sheet to indicate the planned meetings and activities for the initial six months of the proposed geographic unit. The business plan summary sheet is included on the revised petition form. The business plan form shall include the signature of a member of the geographic parent executive committee, which will indicate the geographic parent’s endorsement of the business plan. Petition signers must have been IEEE members for a minimum of six months.
