If you are the Chair or Officer of an Education Society Chapter (or any IEEE chapter for that matter) there is some 'paperwork' that must be completed.
- Planning Chapter Fund Raising events—PowerPoint presentation
- Start a Web Site for Your Chapter
- The relevant portion of the IEEE Regional Activity Board's Operating Manual that applies to chapter officers and chapter activity.
- Chapter Funding Guide. If your chapter has or will have a bank account, you must contact the Section Chair and/or Treasurer as there are IEEE requirements regarding the management and accountability of funds.
- Resources for Officers
- Annual Report, which includes the names and contact information for the chapter's officers and committee members. This Report must be revised when they is a change.
- Report for Technical Meetings, which is the electronic method of reporting technical meetings and workshops that the chapter sponsors (or co-sponsors). Note: IEEE requires that each chapter conduct 2 technical meetings per year in order to maintain its 'active' status. A copy of these reports should also be sent to the Section Chair and/or Section Treasurer.
- Chapter Chair Handbook has been produced by the IEEE Chapter Support staff. It is an excellent guide to the duties of a chapter chair.
- Useful information for New Chapter Officers
- All forms relevant to chapter operations.
New IEEE chapter chairs can request that a letter be sent to their employer.
