IEEE Computer Society Launches Corporate Initiative
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., June 11, 2009 – The IEEE Computer Society has launched an outreach campaign called Raise Your Standards to raise awareness of the global organization. Targeted at technology professionals and the corporations who hire them, the Raise Your Standards campaign communicates how the society’s products and services can help them grow.
The initiative’s message will be communicated via nine video vignettes on You Tube, MySpace, and SecondLife, as well as via http://raiseyourstandards.org and a DVD distributed at conferences and tradeshows around the world.
“Whether you’re a hardware or a software engineer, in academia or industry, or just trying to understand the gap between business and technology, we are here to make your life a little easier,” said Susan K. (Kathy) Land, the IEEE Computer Society’s 2009 president and principal software systems engineer with MITRE Corp.
The Computer Society is offering human resources and training professionals opportunities to partner and attract, develop, and retain top talent. The Computer Society also offers custom webinars, podcasts, and webinars that can be used as training vehicles in these cost-conscious times.
The Computer Society can link marketing and advertising representatives to members of the organization’s high-caliber technical community. Opportunities are available in print and online advertising and newsletter and webinar sponsorships. The organization’s Standards Activities Board operates a dozen committees whose members hammer out the latest technology guidelines, from information assurance and design automation to storage and software and systems engineering.
“The IEEE Computer Society is not just for members,” said Steve Bollweg, senior manager of the Business & Product Development Department. “It provides products and services for all technologists around the world and for corporations who employ technologists.”
