Welcome to Northern Virginia (NoVA) Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

NoVA Section coordinates closely with Washington and Baltimore Sections with whom we form the South Area of the IEEE Region 2.  We also coordinate with the Central Virginia and Richmond Sections, our neighbors in Region 3.

This web site provides information for IEEE members who are or want to be active in the IEEE Northern Virginia Section. For information about IEEE, visit the main website https://www.ieee.org/.

Select the About Us menu for a description of our geographic span and relation to other sections, who we are, and what we do.  You will also find here the various leadership positions and the lists our affinity groups, chapters, committees, and external professional relationships.

Hover over or click on the Calendar to find the description of our upcoming events for a monthly view.  To receive event notifications login to the IEEE site and verify your primary email address is correct and your communication preferences permit the local IEEE section and chapter e-mail.  You may have to be a member of a chapter to receive notice of its meetings.

The Resources page identifies different categories of resources available for volunteers involved with our Section. 

The vast majority of our activities are organized by members who donate their time. Contact any of our volunteers if you are interested in helping or contact NoVA chair at nova-chair@ieee.org.
