Volunteer Portal

Welcome to the IEEE Southeastern Michigan Section “Volunteer Portal”.   Volunteer activities provide opportunities for skill development in those critical ‘non-technical’ areas that can make or break an engineering career.  In addition, they can expand your network, help with team building skills and enhance engagement with other engineers.

  • One Time Tasks     (<<<LINK)
    • These tasks will only need to be done once. Each task is described in detail, along with an estimate of how long it will take to accomplish, there will be a target time for completion and a contact person for further information, and notification when you complete the task.
  • Periodic Reoccurring Tasks     (<<<LINK)
    • These tasks need to be done on a regular basis. Consistency and the ability to commit to a repeating completion target date and time are necessary.  Each is also described in detail, will include time estimates and the information contact.

From here, you may engage with IEEE Officers, Standing Committees and Geo-units in volunteer tasks of three types; ‘Micro-Volunteer’ Single (one time only) small jobs, Reoccurring (tasks that happen on a repeating basis) and Officer Appointments on the staff of committees and Geo-units (Affinity Groups and Chapters).  Each opportunity type is expanded in the sections below, and specific task or appointment details are given in the write up in the portal sub-pages.

We encourage you to review all the opportunities listed in each type, and try ones that suit your volunteer time availability and interest.

Note: If you begin a task and circumstances prevent your fulfilling the requirements, simply notify the contact person so other arrangements may be made.

 

Officer Postings are not yet activated in the system.  Please check back in a few months.  

  • Officer Postings 
    • Officer postings with our Standing Committees & Geo-units (Affinity Groups and Chapters).  These are long term assignments with links to the associated job descriptions.
    • Appointments to Standing Committees may be re-appointed, based on the Committee Chair’s assessment of performance.  
    • Appointments to fill vacancies in Geo-units may require standing for election at the regular election period for all Geo-units in the Section (Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary or Treasurer). Other positions may only require re-appointment by the Geo-unit Chair.
    • Note: Appointments to Geo-units require the appointee be an active IEEE member, as well as a member of the Geo-unit (Affinity Group or Technical Chapter) of the supporting Society, or one of the supporting Societies in the case of a ‘joint’ Chapter.
