Announcing the 2021 Volunteer Leadership Training Program

The MGA Training Committee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Volunteer Leadership Training (VoLT) Program and will begin accepting applications for the program on 1 June 2021.

The VoLT Program prepares IEEE volunteers for leadership roles in their local units and beyond. The program’s key goals are to:

  • Accelerate volunteer’s knowledge of the IEEE’s organization, products, services, and resources
  • Help volunteers understand their roles within their local units and within the entire organization
  • Create a succession tool that develops and prepares future IEEE volunteer leaders

Since the program’s launch in 2013, over 350 volunteers graduated from the program. Our VoLT graduates represent all 10 IEEE Regions and over 100 Sections.
The volunteers who graduated from the program took the time to undergo the training, knowing the commitment involved.

We hope the result will be a more energized, well-informed, and engaged volunteer for your Section and Region.


In the coming days, announcements of the 2021 VoLT Program will be made through enotice, MGA Scoop, social media, and other channels, inviting eligible candidates to apply for the program.


Applications will be accepted from 1 June 2021 through 21 July 2021.

Applicants will be notified of their application status mid-to late-August.


We kindly ask you to share the news with your fellow IEEE members and volunteers and encourage those who may be interested to learn more about the program and apply this year.

More information about the VoLT Program, including application requirements, can be found in the IEEE Center for Leadership Excellence (CLE) (you may be prompted to log in to the CLE with your IEEE account).
