IEEE-USA PACE Leadership Training Presented by The IEEE-USA PACE Committee (Hamid Vakilzadian & Ted Carr) 2007 IEEE-USA Annual Meeting 31 August – 3 September Scottsdale, AZ
Credits l These slides are the product of several years of IEEE-USA PACE Committee efforts to bring an overview of the structure and function of IEEE and IEEE-USA to its volunteer leadership. l Editors for this version of the PACE slide set are members of the 2007 PACE Committee l Thanks are extended to the many PACE leaders whose ideas have been incorporated into this slide set and to those who will use these slides to further their understanding of IEEE and its organizational units.
IEEE Members Board of Directors Executive Committee Executive Director/ Staff Educational Activities Board Regional Activities Board Technical Activities Board IEEE-USA Standards Association Publication Board (PSPB) Assembly The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) is composed of the above major Boards. IEEE Major Board Structure
IEEEs Vision, Mission, and Purpose VISION: To advance global prosperity by fostering technological innovation, enabling members' careers and promoting community world-wide. MISSION: To promote the engineering process of creating, developing, integrating, sharing, and applying knowledge about electro information technologies and sciences for the benefit of humanity and the profession. Purpose: a)scientific and educational, directed toward the advancement of the theory and practice of electrical engineering, electronics, radio and the allied branches of engineering and the related arts and sciences b)professional, directed toward the advancement of the standing of the members of the professions it serves.

IEEE-USA Organization IEEE-USA is an organizational unit of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. created in 1973 to support the career and public policy interests of IEEE's members in the United States. IEEE-USAs Mission: To recommend policies and implement programs specifically intended to serve and benefit the members, the profession, and the public in the United States in appropriate professional areas of economic, ethical, legislative, social and technology policy concern.
A Worldwide Regional Structure
IEEE US Regional Structure Each Region has a Regional Director, Regional Officers, and Committees Regions may be broken into Areas and/or Councils
IEEE Area/Council Structure Each Area or Council may have a Chair, other Officers, and Committees Areas have one or more Sections and are owned by their Region Councils have several Sections and are owned by those Sections Southwest Area of Region 6
IEEE Section Structure Each Section has a Chair, other Officers and Committees Sections may have one or more: Subsections Technical Society Chapters Student Branches Affinity Groups Southwest Area of Region 6 San Diego Section of Southwest Area of Region 6
IEEE Student Branch Structure Each Student Branch has a Branch Counselor (faculty advisor), a Chair, a set of Officers, and possibly Mentors Student Branches may have one or more Technical Chapters which are called Student Branch Chapters and belong to the Branch Southwest Area of Region 6 Univ. of California at San Diego IEEE Student Branch
IEEE Affinity Groups Affinity Groups are non-technical chapters belonging to a section. Currently approved affinity groups are: -Life Members -Women In Engineering -Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) -Consultants Networks (AICN)
IEEE Division Structure l IEEEs Technical Activities are divided into 10 Technical Divisions l Each Division has a Division Director and a Division PACE Coordinator l Each Division is made up of one or more Societies l Unlike Regions, Divisions do not have Committees, nor do they receive dues allocations. Division I - Circuits and Devices Division II - Industrial Applications Division III - Communications Technology Division IV - Electromagnetics and Radiation Division V - Computer Division VI - Engineering and Human Society Division VII - Energy and Power Engineering Division VIII - Computer Division IX - Signals and Applications Division X - Systems and Control
IEEE Society & Council Structure Division VI Engineering and Human Society Education Society Engineering Management Society Product Safety Engineering Society Professional Communication Society Reliability Society Society on Social Implications of Technology l A Division is composed of one or more IEEE Societies and/or Councils having a similar technical focus l IEEE Societies have a President, other Officers, and Committees l Section Chapters are responsible for reporting to their respective Society as well as to their Section
