Region, Area & Geographic Council
  • Region (10)
    • All parts of the world are in a Region.
    • Established to help manage the activities of the IEEE Sections.
  • Areas
    • Established as parts of a Region – management and administrative organizational unit of the Region
  • Geographic Councils (18)
    • Formed by two or more Sections to help achieve common goals (i.e. produce newsletter, conduct joint meetings).
    • Report to the Sections that formed it.

    • Need at least 50 members to form a Section
  • Subsection (34)
    • Subunit of a Section
    • Need at least 20 member to form a subsection

geographic unit relationships
Geographic Unit Relationships
  • Regions oversee Sections
  • Sections oversee Subsections, Chapters, Student Branches and Affinity Groups
  • Councils are comprised of Sections, and exist at the pleasure of the member Sections
  • Some Councils (but not all) have Chapters and Affinity Groups, and therefore oversee them

Geographic Unit Relationships
  • Affinity Group Parents also oversee Affinity Groups
    • Women In Engineering (WIE)
    • Consultants’ Networks
    • Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD)
    • Life Members Committee
  • Student Branches oversee Student Branch Chapters
  • Societies also oversee Chapters and Student Branch Chapters
ieee sections
IEEE Sections
  • Sections provide a community of colleagues
  • Members build a network through local Section, Chapter, Student Branch activities
  • Develop new skills by taking an active role
    • Gain management, teamwork and leadership experience
  • Gain recognition for accomplishments and recognize the achievements of others
