The IEEE is “the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology.”

However, the IEEE is only as good as its members’ participation. You can help our Denver Chapter IEEE Computer and Information Theory Society.


The Denver IEEE Computer Society is looking officers to support the following leadership roles:

  1. We are looking for an “Educational Activities Officer”
    1. This Computer Society officer will work with our IEEE USA, Computer Society USA, and IEEE R5 Section educational activities officers, and our members, to help elementary to college age students realize their potential.
    2. This position will focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) but generally inform and lead our members toward helping people that want to become engineers and computer scientists.
    3. General qualifications are membership and a desire to help.
  2. We are looking for a “Journalist/Writer/Photographer
    1. This Officer will help to write for our Computer Society and photograph our events.
    2. Developed information will be published in the IEEE and Computer Societies USA, but mostly for our IEEE R5 Section “newsletter” and for our website.
    3. General qualifications are being able to write well, having a camera, and a desire to help.
    4. Reference “Mile High Spark” at
    5. A page here and a paragraph there, with a few good photos, could make you a hero!
  3. We are allowing student liaison members, or “Student Chairs.”
    1. These people should be students. Their job is to inform their general student body of their school and teachers of IEEE and Computer Society meetings and events, and to make sure that all students know they are invited.
    2. There are no additional responsibilities besides following along with our officer development emails and direction.
    3. If the student has time and is willing, they are welcome to help in areas as long as it does not interfere with their studies.
    4. Student officers are invited to officer meetings.



We are always in need of society member, student, and guest speakers to share their thought provoking ideas
