This IEEE volunteer tools (vtools) site provides information on a wide range of tools developed by volunteers for IEEE members and IEEE volunteers. The vTools are developed and made possible by IEEE volunteers. The toolbox simplifies administration by offering web based software,  reduces time spent managing activities, and assists in member development.vTools is sponsored by IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities (MGA). MGA serves the needs of IEEE members by  supporting IEEE Sections, Chapters, and Branches and is responsible for IEEE membership, and member development.

The vTools toolkit contains tools in various phases of development, from production, to pilots, to active development. Visit Tools page for the up to date information on available tools.

About vTools

Many vTools toolboxes have been developed by IEEE volunteers and are being maintained and extended by IEEE staff. The tools and toolboxes aim to simplify the administration of sections and chapters by offering web-based software. Various vTools were sponsored by IEEE Membership and Geographic Activities (MGA). This vTools site is intended to address the current status of the array of tools specifically designed to aid IEEE volunteers with their various jobs. vTools continues to be a “work in progress” and there are many issues that are currently in-work. You can see many of the current items by clicking on the News (Blog) which allows you to sign up for an RSS feed to keep abreast of all the changes that are occurring.
