Corporate Relations Project Report
Fall 2000

Bill Harrison
IEEE Region 3 Corporate Relations Project Chair

Results and recommendations from the Region 3 Corporate Relations Pilot Project were presented at Sections Congress 99, and at a number of other IEEE entity meetings, including an Industry Plan Development meeting held in Piscataway in April 2000.

Bill Harrison and Charles Hickman submitted a grant proposal entitled "Expansion of Region 3 Corporate Relations Project to All IEEE Regions" to the IEEE Foundation. The IEEE Foundation will provide $5,000 to support the expansion of the corporate relations project. Foundation funds will help develop and distribute the training materials drafted in CD format during the Region 3 Pilot Project.

The IEEE is hiring a Corporate Relations Manager to develop and implement a corporate relations strategy for the Institute. An individual will be appointed to this position by November 2000. The Corporate Relations Manager will report to Matt Loeb, Staff Director, at IEEE headquarters.

The Corporate Relations Manager will build on the results and recommendations provided by Region 3 to develop a Corporate Relations Strategy Statement for the IEEE. A Corporate Relations advisory group will be formed early next year to provide input and to support expansion to all IEEE regions.

The Region 3 Pilot Project Report, the IEEE Foundation Grant Proposal, the IEEE Corporate Relations Strategy Statement, Implementation Plans & Schedule, and periodic status reports will be placed on a new Corporate Relations web site.
