TECHNICAL SYMPOSIA GRANTS OFFERED AGAIN IN 2002
 
Based on the success of last year's program, the IEEE Regional Activities
Board has approved limited funding a second year for Technical Symposia
grants of up to $500 for the year 2002. The purpose of the program is to
encourage IEEE geographic units to provide an opportunity for members to
participate in more intensive technical presentations than is possible in a
typical meeting, but short of a full-scale conference.
 
Guidelines are as follows:
1. The Symposium is expected to last a full day and should include at least
5 hours (300 minutes) of technical presentation.
2. The Symposium should be planned or supported by at least one IEEE
Technical Society or Chapter.
3. The proposal should include sufficient information about technical
content, possible speakers, and probable attendees to permit evaluation of
the proposal
4. The proposal must include a budget for the Symposium.
5. The grant will be provided after the IEEE RAB/TAB Section/ Chapter
Support Committee approves a proposal.
6. A report must be provided within one month after the Symposium occurs.
The report may be brief, but should include specific information about the
program and a financial summary.
 
To apply, Sections and Chapters submitting proposals must be active and in
good standing (all required reports current). For more information or to
send proposals, contact Tracy Hawkins at t.hawkins@ieee.org or via fax to
+1 732 463 9359.
 
IDENTITY STANDARDS, VERSION 2
 
IEEE Identity Standards specify how the IEEE name, Master Brand and other
organizational symbols are used in IEEE materials and communications. For
your reference, version 2 of the IEEE Identity Standards is now available
on the Web. The updated document includes IEEE letterhead standards and
examples, and information for use of the IEEE Master Brand in Web pages. In
addition, the revised identity standards have more detailed explanations on
the use of other graphics and text with the IEEE Master Brand, the location
of the Master Brand within a design and the use of color.
 
Transition to the updated IEEE Identity Standards has already begun. The
current IEEE Master Brand should be implemented:
 
· At the first change to a publication, package, Web page, etc.; or
· When a new design is developed; or
· By 31 March 2002, whichever is sooner.
 
To view the revised identity standards or to download electronic images of
the IEEE Master Brand, go to
http://www.ieee.org/about/documentation/copyright/logos.htm.
 
For more information on the use of the IEEE Master Brand, contact Bill
Hagen, Intellectual Property Rights, email w.hagen@ieee.org or phone +1 732
562 3966.
 
 
TECHNICAL EXPERTS GUIDE NOW AVAILABLE
 
Does your volunteer work include public relations responsibilities on
behalf of the IEEE? If so, you may be interested in obtaining the new IEEE
2002 Technical Experts Guide. IEEE Corporate Strategy and Communications
is distributing the Guide to journalists and other media professionals who
write about a wide range of technology topics. This year, for the first
time, the Guide also is available online at
http://www.ieee.org/newsinfo/TEG.html.
 
The 44-page guide includes an alphabetical list of entries based on the
IEEE Technical Interest Profile list and from other Society
recommendations. It provides contact information for representatives from
each IEEE Society and other selected IEEE areas that are of interest to the
media. To obtain either a printed copy or PDF file of the new IEEE
Technical Experts Guide contact Corporate Communications at
corporate-communications@ieee.org.
 
 
 
IEEE ANONYMOUS
 
Many Section volunteers communicate with members and other volunteers using
their personal or business email address. This is fine, if it does not
prove a burden in receiving many IEEE related emails in your home email
inbox or at work. If you would prefer to keep your volunteer activities
separate, or if you send messages to your whole Section and would prefer to
represent the Section leadership as a whole, rather than yourself as the
individual volunteer, consider utilizing one of the free email services
such as Yahoo (www.yahoo.com) or Hotmail (www.hotmail.com) to set up an
email address for your activity. Your address could be simply
"IEEEDelhi@hotmail.com" or "IEEEDayton@yahoo.com." The advantage is that
the email you do receive is not filling up the in-box of either your
personal or work email.
 
If you wish to reflect the name of your Section or Chapter rather than your
own, when the account is created, list the first name as IEEE and the last
name as your Section. For example, the IEEE Princeton/Central New Jersey
Section email address reads "ieeepcnj@yahoo.com" and appears to come from
"IEEE Princeton."
 
 
NEW ETHICS AND MEMBER CONDUCT COMMITTEE FORMED
 
The IEEE Ethics Committee and the IEEE Member Conduct Committee merged to
form the IEEE Ethics and Member Conduct Committee (EMCC). EMCC will
recommend policies and educational programs to promote IEEE member and
staff ethical behavior.
 
Also, it will consider instituting procedures for member and officer
discipline, and requests for support. For information contact Tamara
Walsh, IEEE Corporate Activities, telephone +1 732 465 6451,
t.walsh@ieee.org.
