Mid-year Updates


Hello IEEE Dallas Young Professionals,

The IEEE Dallas Young Professionals Executive Committee is launching our new vision and logo! Check it out here:

We re-branded to capture who are as IEEE Dallas Young Professionals. We are “A Community of Young, Innovative Professionals becoming Future Technology Leaders” and we fulfill this vision through our mission, “Inspiring and equipping our members to become stronger leaders, more successful professionals, and more conscientious citizens”. The vision and mission form the foundation for our event planning. Events vary from professionals to networking to outreach with most events overlapping in one way or another. IEEE Dallas Young Professionals strives to inspire and equip our members to become the future leaders of IEEE by helping recent graduates grow as individuals, professionals, and members of the IEEE community. It is our goal to provide members with leadership, networking, and community service opportunities. Events are designed to allow our members to expand their professional network, to connect with local industry and academia, and to volunteer within and without the IEEE community. We hope to inspire and equip our members to become stronger leaders, more successful professionals, and more conscientious citizens in all aspects of their lives.

So with that we have some great events coming up. Here is a tentative list. Stay posted for updates as our events, especially the outreach events, are still somewhat in flux.

It was a Fun Run!

The May/June Social Event: Fun Run at the Ice House was a Success


Thanks to everyone who came out for the Fun Run at Katy Trail and the Katy Trail Ice House. The weather turned out to be great and we had some good networking conversations. We will definitely consider doing this in the future.
