Section Ideas Required Goal – to receive Region 10 ideas on how to help generate Public Visibility for IEEE by working with National Societies
Section Ideas Required In early 2008 – IEEE launched a five year plan to expand IEEE visibility to the global public This is not just an IEEE staff activity – it is the responsibility of each IEEE volunteer throughout the world
Section Ideas Required It is the responsibility of the Section and Council chairs of IEEE Region 10 – to get to know, and to work cooperatively with the National Societies of their Country.
Section Ideas required One excellent way to enhance the IEEE Public Visibility in IEEE Region 10 – and in all of the countries outside of North America – is by working cooperatively With National Societies using NSAs (National Society Agreements) as a starting point
Section Ideas required --- but following through with real joint cooperative activities, such as Joint Award projects Technical Seminars Training courses – both technical and non-technical Others – see andwww.ieee.org/nsa click Ideas for cooperation
Section Ideas Required As previously noted, it is the responsibility of the Section and Council chairs of IEEE Region 10 – to get to know, and to work cooperatively with the National Societies of their country. This activity should help upgrade the personal and professional lives of the IEEE – and NS – members, and also of the technical community – while expanding the Public Visibilty of both organizations
Section Ideas Required In IEEE Region 10 – 26 National Society Agreements (NSA) 24 Sister Society Agreements (SSA) Thus, we have a great opportunity to generate all types of cooperation with the National Societies – and achieve the desired exposure / visibility to the public
Section Ideas Required The more effort that we put into the cooperation with the National Societies, the more IEEE – and the NS – will get out of the liason – as well as achieving more Public Visibility for both organizations
Section Ideas required Some examples of IEEE Sections and Councils working together successfully with outside organizations include – The IEEE Italian Section has worked with AEIT for publishing a limited number of Spectrum articles per year. They also have organized a Joint Award for young researchers
Section Ideas required The IEEE Chile Section has initiated a Joint Award with AIE – an industry association with 40 member companies The IEEE Singapore Section has worked with local universities in Pre - College education – to develop and run a Computer Camp for young people – approximate ages 12 – 15 years
Section Ideas Required In each case – the Energy, Enthusiasm, Spirit – And Public Visibility – of each IEEE Section involved was greatly enhanced. These are just a few of many Successes!!! TRY IT!!! – YOU MIGHT LIKE IT!!!
-and the creation of joint cooperative activities The IEEE Section is the key to the success of IEEE- National Society cooperation
