IEEE Student Branch online activity reporting
Student Branch activity reporting is available online. To be an active IEEE Student Branch, submit the online activity report once a year. Organize activities and maintain good membership levels in your Student Branch.

This online Web form is simple and easy to use. In 2010, this online form replaced both the annual report of activities and the annual plan of activities PDF files and are no longer accepted. Activity reports are due 1 May or two months after your academic year ends (whichever is more convenient in your location).

IEEE Student Branch new student officer reporting
IEEE Student Branches must also report new student officers as elections are held. The Student Branch Counselor (faculty) should be reported at least annually.

If officers are not reported, the position will be listed as vacant until reporting of an eligible officer is received and confirmed.
