Applications will open on June 1.

The MGA Training Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2024 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.

To date, 559 volunteers representing all ten IEEE Regions, and 176 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.

If you are ready to apply, please click HERE to begin your application.

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, via the 'VoLT Program' dropdown at top right. For complete application requirements, please see our Application Checklist.

Application & Key Dates

Applications will be accepted from 1 June 2024 through 31 July 2024. In addition to their applications, candidates must have completed the eight prerequisite courses and submitted their endorsements by the application deadline in order to be considered for a seat in this year’s program.

Candidates will be notified of their application status in late August of 2024. The program starts in early September and ends in early December. During the program, participants will attend weekly - and sometimes twice-weekly - virtual webinars focused on leadership topics. Participants will have a dedicated mentor, and work on a project in their assigned teams of four to six people.

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

Thank you,
