IEEE Officer Training Online

The MGA Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT) was designed to:

a) accelerate volunteers’ knowledge of the IEEE organization, products & services, and resources available to them;

b) help volunteers understand their role within their local units and within the larger IEEE and

c) create a succession tool that develops and prepares future IEEE volunteer leaders.


IEEE vTool

IEEE volunteer tools (vtools) site provides information on a wide range of tools developed by volunteers for IEEE members and IEEE volunteers. Most of these tools have been developed by IEEE volunteers. The toolbox simplifies organizational efforts and administration by offering web-based software in order to reduce time spent on managing activities and to assist in member development. The tools are sponsored by IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities (MGA), which serves the needs of IEEE members by supporting IEEE Sections, Chapters, and Branches and is responsible for IEEE membership, and member development.
