Important Issues
  • Declining Membership In USA
  • One IEEE Concept
  • Infrastructure Costs

3
Infrastructure Costs
  • Rising Infrastructure costs can affect financial
    viability of individual units (p.ex.,growing
    piece of Xplore revenues being used for
    infrastructure)
  • Final budget responsibility should rest with
    volunteers
  • IEEE BoD must take a harder look at initiatives
    with big financial impact (ex, creating ieee
    domain)
  • IEEE must continue to be run as .org and not as
    .com

4
Is IEEE Strangling its Golden Geese?
  • Presidents Message
  • IEEE Communications Magazine
  • September 2001

5
Decrease of Membership in R1-R6
  • Less focus on services target at academia.
  • Increase collaboration with industry.
  • Continuing education IEEE needs to do a much
    better job.
  • For professional life learning
  • understand the needs of young professionals.
  • Revisit issue of lower cost access to information
    by members.

One IEEE Concept
  • One IEEE is a very good concept and important.
  • We should all work together to improve services
    to all our constituencies, from members, to
    community to mankind.
  • owever for One IEEE to work it is important that
    in each instance all stakeholders involved see
    some benefit in their participation. The One IEEE
    concept cannot be used to simply transfer
    resources from one unit to other or an excuse to
    transfer control of activities to corporate staff
    or to direct supervision by the BOD

One IEEE Concept
  • One IEEE is a very good concept and important.
  • We should all work together to improve services
    to all our constituencies, from members, to
    community to mankind.
  • However for OneIEEE to work it is important that
    in each instance all stakeholders involved see
    some benefit in their participation. The One IEEE
    concept should not be used to simply transfer
    resources from one unit to another or an excuse
    to transfer control of activities to corporate
    staff or to direct supervision by the BOD

14
One IEEE Concept (2)
  • We must continue to empower IEEE units so that
    they are motivated to contribute to the overall
    good.
