IEEE Region 10

A Region is an enclosure that is widely divided by bodily features, human impact features, and the interaction of humanity and the ecosystem. IEEE has been split up into 10 geographical units called ‘Regions’. The United States of America has been divided into Region 1 to Region 6. Canada falls under Region 7. Europe, Middle East, and Africa have been categorized into Region 8. Again, Region 9 consists of only Latin America. On the other hand, Asia and the Pacific have been placed as Region 10. The main objective of the Region is to support the worldwide technology community to enhance the quality of living for humanity. As IEEE is the world’s largest technical organization so the needs of its members are met swiftly after proper divisions which are known as Regions. Membership recruitment, retention strategies, and implementation are better carried out consequently. The volunteers are always informed, and their activities coordinated so that their respective regions remain most vibrant and active among 10 geographical regions in IEEE.

The geographic units of IEEE (Sections, Chapters, Affinity Groups, and Student Branches) prepare distinctive opportunities for members to participate in presentations and leadership conveniences so that they can make a positive reputation in IEEE members’ jobs and careers.
