vTools - providing tools to the volunteers and staff who support our members. vTools are developed and made possible by IEEE volunteers. The toolbox simplifies administration by offering web based software, reduces time spent managing activities, and assists in member development. vTools project portfolio is sponsored by IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities (MGA). MGA serves the needs of IEEE members by supporting IEEE Sections, Chapters, and Branches and is responsible for IEEE membership, and member development. vTools toolkit contains tools in various phases of development, from production, to pilots, to active development
