Squaring the IEEE Society-Chapter-Section Triangle: Meeting Member Technical Needs

IEEE Chapters serve as a bridge between the local section and the technical
societies with which the chapter is affiliated. Chapters provide the
closest link between the member and higher technical (TA) and regional/
geographical (MGA) hierarchies of IEEE and are expected to serve as the
first and most apparent source of technical knowledge, networking and
resources for its members.


They provide an outstanding opportunity to learn, network and tap into the
wealth of knowledge available in the IEEE Societies, as well as offer a great
opportunity to increase member engagement. This session will elaborate
on the position of the IEEE Chapter between its two “parents,” with special
emphasis on the benefits available to the chapter, to the section, and also
to the society/ies associated with the chapter.
