My Vision

I have spoken at over 200 IEEE events in all ten IEEE regions. My close association with members and volunteers at grassroots level gives me insights. I can easily empathize with academics, young professionals, mid-career industry engineers, and women and under-represented minorities, in particular. This helps me to address your needs by developing appropriate programs to advance your professional development. I pledge to:

Powerfully demonstrate IEEE’s relevance to current and prospective members

  • Proactive outreach demonstrating benefits of IEEE membership especially to women and minorities
  • Highlight the networking opportunities at IEEE conferences held globally
  • Provide access to massive resources for up-skilling and collaboration facilities worldwide that IEEE makes available

Recognize the contributions our volunteers make for our publications and standards

  • Reviewers of IEEE journal papers will earn points which they can redeem to download published papers
  • Volunteers who contribute to guides and standards development can have access to these documents for their own use

Make IEEE broader, stronger, more relevant, more global and more assertive

  • Encourage technology professionals with or without a college degree to join IEEE
  • Provide broader member benefits and ensure financial transparency and stability
  • Deliver closer ties with industry and grow industry membership
  • Ascend geographical and political barriers to allow equal volunteer participation in IEEE
  • Better recognize contributions of female and under-represented minority members
  • Advance IEEE as a leader for addressing global challenges like Sustainable Development by working closely with other global technical professional societies


Together we will make IEEE a more successful and
resilient global technical organization
