IEEE Western Australia Section and WA IEEE Chapters /Affinity Groups

Call For 2019 Nominations

The IEEE is the largest professional engineering organisation in the world with over 400,000 members worldwide. Western Australia has over 600 members.

Each year the term of the elected officers ends on the 31st Dec and the newly elected officers commence early in the following year. Many of the volunteers continue to support the IEEE and nominate from year to year. The IEEE Western Australia Section and it's technical society chapters is inviting nominations from existing IEEE committee members and also members at large to serve on its committees in 2019.

The main roles are: chair, vice chair, treasurer and secretary on each of the committees. There are other roles e.g. webmaster, technical activities coordinator, awards and recognition coordinator, student activities coordinator, educational activities coordinator, membership development.

There are also affinity groups Women In Engineering (WIE) and Young Professionals (YP) where the group focuses on particular of interest areas that extend beyond technical and embrace diverse lifestyle topics.

As a member of these committees you will get the opportunity to work with other IEEE volunteers and perhaps gain new skills or sharpen existing ones that can be applied in volunteer roles or help you in your employment. Some examples: organisation skills, minute taking, financial management, seminar and conference operations. The amount of time that you devote to volunteering is up to you and the role that you might enjoy, either because it suits your existing skills or you would like some challenges.

It can be a foot in the door to other IEEE volunteer activities locally and internationally plus career progression /recognition.

The IEEE is an international organisation and many volunteers get the opportunity to represent Western Australia or a particular engineering discipline overseas.

Most of the work undertaken by these committees relates to technical events including international conferences.

The main roles are:

- Chair
- Vice Chair
- Treasurer
- Secretary

You could also join as a general committee member and decide on a specific role after the AGM.

The organisational units are:

- Western Australia Section - as the oversight group for all the WA activities
- Circuits and Systems (CAS) Chapter - note: a recently formed chapter
- Joint Computational Intelligence /Robotics & Automation (CIS and RAS) Chapter
- Communications Chapter
- Computer Chapter
- Joint Electron Devices/ Solid State Circuits / Photonics (ESP) Chapter
- Joint Power & Energy and Power Electronics (PES PELS) Chapter
- Systems Man & Cybernetics (SMC) Chapter
- Signal Processing (SP) Chapter
- Oceanic Engineering Chapter (OE) (Australia wide chapter rather than a WA chapter)
- Young Professionals (YP)
- Women In Engineering (WIE)

The Annual General Meeting will commence at 6.00 pm on the 7th December 2018. (5.30pm for 6.00opm start)

The closing date for the formal nominations is COB Friday the 30th Nov 2018.

Nomination form is available by clicking on the link to the organisational unit above or contact Section Chair via harry.mcdonald@ieee.org or on 0403 329 100.
