These roles are filled at the discretion of the Chair and with the affirmation of committee. These roles vary based on the goals and efforts within a given year. Other non-voting liaison roles can be added at the discretion of the chair and with the affirmation of the committee.
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. 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.
