Chapters

Purpose

SMC Chapters, the local branch of the SMC Society, consist of members from the SMC Society who share geographical proximity. SMC Chapters may include members from other IEEE Societies sharing the technical interests of the SMC Society. In this case, they are called joint chapters. Chapters provide members with valuable opportunities to network at a local level enabling their personal and professional growth. Members of SMC chapters conduct events such as meetings, workshops, seminars and conferences within the Field of Interest of the SMC Society as well as social functions. A complete list of the SMC Chapters can be found below.

How to create a new SMC Chapter

12 or more higher-grade SMC members within a Section are eligible to form a new SMC Chapter. If an SMC Chapter already exists in the Section, a new SMC Chapter may be formed if membership in that area is greater than one chapter can accommodate.

To form a new SMC Chapter, the organizer will need:

  • 12 SMC members to sign the New Chapter petition
  • Approval of the Petition by your local Section Executive Committee
  • Approval from your Regional Activities Board which is granted if the SMC Society President and your Regional Director have no objections.

Complete instructions for creating a new SMC chapter can be found here

Subsidy for new chapters

A subsidy of $500 is available for the newly formed SMC chapters.

Required reporting of chapter and student branch chapter activities

After each meeting, the IEEE L31 form must be submitted to ensure that your activity is recorded and that your chapter remains on the active list of IEEE.

Additional guidelines for chapters are available here
