Fall Conference Fall 2012 Section Conference



Our conferences are the product of many hours of planning and preparation by our volunteer members.

As a volunteer, you get a chance to work directly with some of the best engineers in the area. Our conference volunteers include professional members, retired members and life members, and graduate and undergraduate student members.

Please note that volunteers do not obtain any discount. Everyone attending the conference pays to attend. The IEEE Section covers the registration for the speakers.

Our conferences are not "fund raiser" events. We put on these events as a benefit for IEEE members.

Skill Building

As a volunteer, you can use your skills, and learn new skills, to help produce events. You will gain first-hand experience in learning and practicing skills such as:

  • Project Management
  • Leadership
  • Planning
  • Organizing and Prioritzing
  • Communicating
  • Working as a Team
  • Finacial Management and Budgeting


Examples of some volunteer jobs include:

  • Planning Committee You will help plan the conference event, solicit technical speakers, market and advertize, or other jobs where you can use your skills.
  • On-Site Registration You will give pre-registered attendees their credentials, and help those that are not yet registered to register. Registration volunteers also help assemble meeting badges and ribbons.
  • Set Up You will help place signs at the session rooms.
  • Communications You will help coordinate activities between the volunteers in different areas.
  • Speaker, Poster, and/or Sponsor Host/Hostess You will see that speakers, posters, and sponsors find their rooms and are comfortable.

Planning Materials

The planning committee communicates using the Section IEEE Online Community. Much of the conference planning information is available there, and you can find the agendas and minutes of past planning meetings for your reference. Use your IEEE member login name to login.
