IEEE Volunteers Help when Disaster Strikes

Monday, February 12th, 2018

The IEEE-USA MOVE Community Outreach Initiative has been positively impacting the southeastern US through participation in disaster relief efforts and STEM education events. All MOVE volunteers need to go through training, and you will have that opportunity at SoutheastCon 2018 in St. Petersburg, FL. On Thursday, April 19, you can attend a special one-day Red Cross Disaster Services Technology 101 class, taught by a Red Cross instructor – this course normally takes several weeks! On Sunday, the MOVE Truck Systems Training will be held, from 12:30-6:30. This is a great opportunity to prepare now so you can help with a future disaster, or use the MOVE truck for a STEM event!

There is no cost to participate in the training, however travel expenses will not be covered by the Region or by MOVE.  If you are already planning on being at SoutheastCon on Thursday or are staying late Sunday, you should especially consider taking advantage of this opportunity to train, as it will add no additional cost.
