VoLT is targeted to volunteers who have a true desire to learn about the broader IEEE and are considering taking leadership positions within their local units and future IEEE committee roles. Those who have 2+ years of experience volunteering in their local units and have not held a Section Chair position are highly encouraged to participate.

The MGA Volunteer Leadership Training Program (VoLT) has three main goals:

  1. a) accelerate volunteers’ knowledge of the IEEE organization, products & services, and resources available to them;
  2. b) help volunteers understand their role within their local units and within the larger IEEE and
  3. c) create a succession tool that develops and prepares future IEEE volunteer leaders.

The program has two tracks:

  • Track 1 covers an introduction to each organizational unit of the IEEE and is available to all IEEE volunteers. Track 1 runs each year around May and June. Volunteers who complete Track 1 within the pre-defined period and by the deadline provided each year may apply for consideration for Track 2.
  • Track 2 starts around September each year and lasts three months. It consists of live weekly webinars on leadership related topics. During Track 2 participants work on a project assignment. Volunteers who have at least 2 years of volunteer experience within their local units and have not been a Section Chair are highly encouraged to participate in the VoLT Program.
