IEEE Region 3 Member Communication Information

Region 3 believes the member is IEEE and needs to be well informed about its activities so that the member can effectively fulfill the obligations to the public, the profession, and the IEEE mission.

The Member Communications Committee (MCC) shall support and facilitate the effective, seamless, and interactive sharing of information and knowledge with members of Region 3 and others. The communications to members shall support professional and technical activities as well as facilitate recruitment and retention activities. The communications strategy is to provide an active multi-modal delivery system that informs the members about IEEE activities and their impact in such a way as they are motivated and empowered to participate in their organization. This committee will also support other activities related to individual members of Region 3.
