The Institute - March 2022 - 52

services to members, industries, and
the public at large.
Over the years, I have volunteered
my time and effort to make IEEE a
better place for all of us. I started as a
student member more than 36 years
ago. I started volunteering with the
IEEE Signal Processing Society.
Eventually I went on to oversee all of
IEEE's societies and councils as vice
president, Technical Activities, and I
served on the IEEE Board of Directors.
However, I am also still a member, just
like all of you. I continue to read IEEE
journals, participate in conferences,
and use IEEE standards, and I enjoy
engaging with my local chapter.
I understand the issues many of you,
IEEE Is Your
Professional Home
DID YOU KNOW that IEEE is not just an
organization of electrical and electronics
engineers? We welcome all those who
are interested in and want to contribute
to our technological mission.
As the world's largest technical
professional organization, IEEE has
long been composed of engineers,
scientists, technologists, practitioners,
and entrepreneurs. Members are experts
from the highest echelons of academia,
industry, and government, and they work
in every vital area of technology. For this
reason, the organization is now referred to
simply as IEEE-your professional home.
As your professional home, within
IEEE one can find computer scientists
as well as electrical, mechanical, and
electronics engineers. One can also
find physicists and biologists who use
our technical literature in their daily
work; entrepreneurs and marketers
who build their businesses on our
members' technologies; technicians who
demonstrate their proficiency through
their technical advances published
in our journals; and teachers who
share their knowledge of science and
technology with their students through
our educational offerings.
Although IEEE still honors its
electrical engineering roots, during the
past few decades, its fields of interest
have expanded well beyond electrical and
electronics engineering and computing
into just about any area one can imagine.
As technologies and the industries
that developed them have increasingly
transcended national boundaries,
IEEE has kept pace. It has continued to
expand its global presence to enhance
its excellence in delivering products and

my fellow members, are facing in your
professional lives, whether it's getting
your career started after graduation,
excelling or struggling in your position in
academia or industry, or leveraging the
" gig economy " as an entrepreneur.
And though the days when a
technologist could count on lifetime
employment with a single company
are long gone, IEEE can be your
professional home base from the
time you first join as a student
member until retirement. IEEE offers
the products, services, networking
opportunities, and educational and
professional development programs
required for every stage of your career.
IEEE spans our members' entire
professional life cycle-catering to
those just thinking about engineering
or science as a career, as well as those
already studying, teaching, practicing,
inventing, or advocating for technology.
IEEE also provides members with
a strong sense of community and
a worldwide network of personal
connections that can help mentor and
nurture your professional journey.
The future
Together with the IEEE Board of
Directors, I began this year with a
commitment to shaping the IEEE
of the future and examining ways in
which the organization can evolve
