We need several volunteers to set up, maintain, and manage our global face.

I want to develop an IEEE CIR, Facebook, linked-In, twitter, meet up, and other… society mangers. You do not have to be an expert at all of the media examples. I would like to make a team of media experts that develop each individual outlet. Most of our data is developed by scheduling and posting out events, you could use developed data and help to make us famous.

These positions are wide open; you have full creativity, management, and autonomy. Just so long as we work in the positive interests of the IEEE and each of our societies.

Work is what you want to put in to it – make us look good!
