IEEE Sections Congress is a triennial gathering of Section leadership sponsored by the Member and Geographic Activities Board. An event which includes four days of working sessions and networking, Sections Congress involves hundreds of delegates from all ten Regions. At Congress they learn how to utilize the resources of the IEEE to maximize their effectiveness as IEEE volunteer leaders. Workshop, panel and tutorial sessions are held on topics of interest to the Sections.
Sections Congress is the one major meeting sponsored by the IEEE which brings together the Institute's grassroots leadership so that they can share ideas, concerns and solutions.
The Congress is also a forum where the Section Chairs speak as the collective voice of IEEE membership, expressing ideas about how the Institute can better serve its members, both now and going forward. The issues generated at Sections Congress have had a major impact on the plans made by the IEEE Leadership for the future of the Institute.
