Last year, the IEEE Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VOLT) was successfully implemented with volunteers across all the Regions of IEEE and targeted volunteers with a true desire to learn about the broader IEEE, participate in IEEE committees, and consider taking leadership positions within their units.
For 2015, the program will consist of two tracks.
Track 1: All IEEE volunteers are invited to participate in Track 1, which will cover key organizational units of IEEE and focus on the foundational knowledge of the organization. These prerequisite courses are available to all IEEE volunteers through the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) site.
Access Track 1 courses (Log in with your IEEE Account and choose the “Volunteer Leadership Training Pre-Requisite” category to begin)
Volunteers who complete these foundational courses in the CLE by 24 August can apply for consideration for Track 2 of the VOLT Program, scheduled to start in mid-September and end early December 2015.
The VOLT team is looking for 50 volunteers to participate in this year’s program.
Track 2 will focus on leadership related topics, and provide practical leadership experience volunteers can apply in their professional and personal environments. It is geared towards volunteers who have not been a Section Chair within their units, have at least two years of experience as IEEE volunteers, and meet the specified criteria.
Application forms must be submitted by 4 September 2015. The final selection will be completed and announced prior to the start of the program in early September 2015.
