Description of 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 expand your network, help with team building skills and enhance engagement with other engineers.

This access point provides opportunities to engage with IEEE Officers, Standing Committees and Geo-units in volunteer tasks of two types; ‘Micro-Volunteer’ Single (one time only) and Officer Appointments on the staff of committees and Geo-units (Affinity Groups and Chapters and Student Branches).

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.

  • Single Tasks
    • These tasks will only need to be done once. Each task title includes an estimate of how long it will take to accomplish, a target time for completion and a contact person for further information, and notification when the task has been accomplished.
  • Officer Postings

Postings are of two types:  Standing Committees and Geo-units (Affinity Groups, Chapters and Student Branches).  These are long term assignments with links to the associated job descriptions (where one currently exists).

  • 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: Membership in a specific Geo-unit Technical Society may be required, if the appointment is to a Senior Officer position; i.e. Chair, Vice-Chair, Secretary or Treasurer.
