At IEEE, we believe engineering-driven entrepreneurs are key drivers of tomorrow’s innovations and are integral to advancing technology for humanity. As an association with over 400,000 members worldwide, we seek to foster the entrepreneurship spirit by:
- Providing an inspirational medium in which individuals are able to discuss and develop their ideas,
- Accessing resources to help bring concepts to life,
- Facilitating connections that lead to successful partnerships.
IEEE Entrepreneurship is calling for nominations for Steering Committee Officers in 2021.
The deadline to submit nominations for steering committee member positions is 30 October 2020.
Eligibility: IEEE Entrepreneurship encourages and welcomes members to participate in liaison roles.
Anyone may submit a nomination; you do not need to be an IEEE member to submit a nomination, but this may be a factor in final selections.
Self-nominations are permitted and encouraged.
IEEE Organizational units may submit recommendations if the governing body or its designee has endorsed the candidate.
All applicants should have some experience with entrepreneurship and be able to perform the expected duties of that role.
The determination of Steering Committee voting roles is on the basis of a promote-from-within philosophy, which allows IEEE Entrepreneurship Volunteers to start in a liaison role and develop the necessary skills and know-how to progress into more advance roles.
Volunteers who have served in a role in the past are eligible for further liaison roles; however, they must complete a new nomination form.
Term: The new committee would serve for one year from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2021.
Duties: The duties of the officers can be found on the Volunteer Role Descriptions Page.
Nominations should be submitted no later than 30 October 2020.
The IEEE Entrepreneurship Committee Chair will post the results newly appointed committee on the IEEE Entrepreneurship Portal on 30 November 2020.
IEEE greatly values the contributions of the volunteers and we hope you will consider volunteering for a committee position next year.
