As the world’s largest technical professional organization, IEEE offers a number of ways to get involved with technical and local communities.

These communities are active participants in research and authorship, conferences, and important conversations about today’s most relevant technical topics locally and globally.

IEEE Society :

Members stay technically current, network with colleagues locally and abroad, and collaborate on research and projects with leading experts — all while taking advantage of specialized opportunities. Discover which Society, or Societies, best match your technical interests by joining today to take advantage of membership benefits ranging from access to cutting-edge technical periodicals and conference discounts to educational resources and worldwide networking opportunities. In addition, IEEE members enjoy deep discounts on Society memberships.

Chapters are:

  • The technical sub-unit of one or more IEEE Sections
  • Society/Technical Council Chapters consist of members from one or more IEEE Societies/Technical Councils who share technical interests and geographical proximity
  • Chapter activities may include guest speakers, workshops, and seminars as well as social functions
  • Chapters provide Society members with valuable opportunities to network at a local level, enabling their personal and professional growth
  • Established by petition to the parent geographical and technical organizational units concerned to fulfill the mission of IEEE
  • Formed to serve IEEE members by holding meetings at the local level
