IEEE Washington Section - Overview and Information
This website provides information for IEEE members who are (or want to be) active in the Washington Section of the IEEE. The Washington Section includes the District of Columbia (DC), and parts of Maryland and West Virginia. This page describes approximate geographic extent of the section, based on counties. If you reside in one of these counties, you are in this Section.
Please contact us if you’d like to get involved or want to discuss how you can make the most of your IEEE membership. We are here to help. The fastest way to get in touch with us is by joining our Slack channels. Anyone with an ieee.org email account can use this link to sign up for the IEEE Washington Section’s Slack.
For more information about IEEE, please visit the main IEEE website. At that site, the IEEE societies and communities page provides information about societies, technical councils and committees, working groups, sections, chapters, and student branches, from an overarching IEEE perspective. All of these groups are relevant to the National Capital Area (NCA – comprised of the Washington Section and the Northern Virginia Section), as our sections include local divisions of almost each one.
To find upcoming events from your mobile device, please install the IEEE Event Finder app. You can search for IEEE events and conferences by name, city, state, or province; by IEEE Region, Section, or Chapter; or by the IEEE Society or Council sponsoring it. The app is available for Android and iPhone platforms. If not using the app, log in to ieee.org and then visit this vTools link to find upcoming Section events.
For information about the Washington Section’s various groups, click the Groups link in the menu. Our affiliate organizations, affinity groups, chapters, and student branches are enumerated there, including relevant contact information. For information about the Northern Virginia Section, which has much in common with the Washington Section, please visit the NoVA site.
