Message from the IEEE President and the Executive Director

Howard E. Michel, 2015 IEEE President and E. James Prendergast , IEEE Executive Director and COO headshots

2015 was a year of advances, both for IEEE as an organization, and for our global community of technical professionals. It was a year hallmarked by the expansion of IEEE’s existing relationships with the international business and governmental communities, as well as the broadening of IEEE’s influence, impact, and reach in countries and regions around the world as diverse as Africa, China, India, and the European Union.

We began the year with a commitment to shaping the IEEE of the future – and demonstrated this by focusing the Board on a vision for IEEE in 2030 and examining ways in which IEEE can evolve today in order to best meet the needs of technical professionals in the years ahead.

INSPIRING ENGINEERING

Engineers and technologists are, fundamentally, problem solvers. Presented with a challenge, they work to solve it by reimagining and repurposing existing technologies or by creating entirely new solutions. At IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity, it’s our job to empower this “can do” spirit, which engineers and technologists carry in their DNA.

Essential to accomplishing this goal is the recognition that, at its heart, technology is not about hardware and software—it’s about people. People create new technologies from which others, in turn, benefit. IEEE members know this and dedicate themselves to creating technologies that make the world a safer, healthier, and more prosperous place for everyone.
