Chapter Logos
Chapters may use the approved Sensors Council chapter logos provided for their chapter for any local chapter activities (such as newsletters, chapter website, chapter social media, chapter meetings etc.). Chapter logos and usage guidelines can be found here.

How to Create a New IEEE Sensors Council Chapter
If you are interested in forming a Sensors Council Chapter, please follow the procedures outlined at this link: Creating a Chapter. Please contact Chair of the committee on chapters, Brent Lunceford, at brent.lunceford.us@ieee.org, in case of further queries.

Once a Chapter is approved, the new volunteers are recommended to visit the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE). It offers an easy to use Action Plan with training that a volunteer can apply in his/her new chapter officer’s role. The Action Plan has a job description and checklists of tasks to complete during your first 30 days in office, and throughout the year. Use your IEEE account to access CLE and go to the Volunteer icon on the homepage, then click the “Action Plans” icon to begin.

Request Distinguished Lecturer to give a lecture at your Chapter
Please contact the Vice President – Technical Operations, Anil Roy, at anil_roy@daiict.ac.in directly, should you need to contact a DL Speaker at your Chapter meeting. However, the complete information of DLP may be found here.

Request Funding for Chapter Events
Sensors Council gives some seed fund to the newly approved Chapters. Please fill out the following online Form, should you need funding. You may also contact the Vice President – Technical Operations, Anil Roy, at anil_roy@daiict.ac.in directly with a copy to Brooke Johnson (bjohnson@conferencecatalysts.com) if you have any query or need any support.
