The MGA Training Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2020 Volunteer Leadership Training (VoLT) Program. The VoLT Program invites volunteers who have a desire to continue growing as IEEE volunteers and lead their local units to complete the program’s prerequisite courses, and apply for the program when the application opens in June.

To date, over 350 volunteers representing all ten IEEE Regions, and over 100 Sections, have graduated from the VoLT Program. As a testament to its success, graduates are taking positions of leadership with their local operational units and beyond.


Prerequisite Courses & Other Requirements

To be considered for the program, candidates are required to complete the eight prerequisite courses that cover the core organizational units of IEEE and provide foundational knowledge of the organization. Log into the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) to access the courses. For complete application requirements, see our Application Checklist.


Application & Key Dates

The application for the 2021 class will open 1 June 2021. The link to the application will be posted in the CLE and the MGA website.

The application deadline is 21 July 2021. In addition to their applications, candidates must have completed the eight prerequisite courses and submitted their endorsements by this date in order to be considered for a seat in this year’s program.

Candidates will be notified of their application status in mid- to late-August 2021. The program starts September and ends December. During the program, participants will attend weekly virtual webinars focused on leadership topics. Participants will have a mentor, and work on a project in their assigned teams.


For more information about the program, please visit us in the CLE. Please share this announcement with anyone who may be interested in the program.

Thank you,
