A PES Chapter is a technical sub-unit of one or more IEEE Sections and it consists of PES members who share technical interests and geographical proximity. Chapters provide PES members with the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow IEEE members. An active chapter can be one of the most positive elements of being an IEEE PES member by offering programs, activities, professional networking, special events/conference, etc. It provides valuable opportunities to network at a local level, enabling their personal and professional growth.
A PES Chapter can also be affiliated with an IEEE Student Branch. An active Student Branch Chapter can be one of the most positive elements at a college or university. You have the opportunity to meet and learn from fellow IEEE student members and engage with professional IEEE members locally.
As of December 2016, PES had 244 Professional Chapters and 240 Student Branch Chapters. Involvement with a PES chapter is a great way to get the most of your membership at a local level.
From Seattle to Singapore, PES chapters are found across the globe. Use our Chapter Locator tool to find a PES chapter near you.
