Become a Volunteer

MGAB volunteersWant to make the IEEE Computer Society better not just for you, but everyone? Consider volunteering with the IEEE Computer Society Membership & Geographic Activities Board (CS MGA Board). The CS MGA Board provides member development and member-related activities including:

  •   Member services;
  •   Programs to support our global network of chapters (including regional meetings);
  •   Student activities (e.g. scholarship program);
  •   And, initiatives for early career professionals, industry engagement, and diversity and inclusion.

As a volunteer, you’ll steer activities and programs for our 375,000+ engaged professionals and students from across the wide depth and breadth of fields in computer science and engineering.

Five reasons you should volunteer with us:

  •   Advance Your Field: Drive the evolution and growth of your technical area of expertise and interest.
  •   Make Connections: Network with and advise your peers from across the globe.
  •   Propel Your Career: Use your volunteer experience to enhance your entire professional skill set.
  •   Gratitude: Give back to the Computer Society and the greater computing community by volunteering your time, knowledge, and experience.
  •   Make an Impact: By volunteering, you make an everlasting impact on our goal of advancing technology for humanity.

Volunteering with the IEEE Computer Society is a doorway to new connections, opportunities, and skills. After retiring from my role as the Victorian Computer Society Chapter Chair, I joined the CS MGA Board taking on two roles, one involved supporting a handful of chapters, and the other was judging student awards. I moved across a range of positions within the CS MGA Board and today I serve as the Computer Society’s Vice President for Member Geographic Activities. In my role, I get to meet and support hundreds of enthusiastic volunteers from around the world; student leaders, young professionals, established academics, senior university administrators, and professionals in the industry, government, and civil society. I participate in strategic and governance work and have enjoyed and continue to enjoy serving alongside some of the best leaders and minds in the field.
