The 2010 IEEE-USA Annual Meeting provided an unparalleled training opportunity for IEEE’s U.S. volunteers and members. Industry leaders will explore one of the most important engineering challenges facing the world:  STEM education and continuing career development.

Keynoters Norm Augustine (retired CEO, Lockheed Martin), William Wulf (past President, National Academy of Engineers) and Ed Gordon (author of "Winning the Global Talent Showdown") highlighted the challenges facing the United States and the profession as it comes to gripes with globalization of the high tech sector.

Attendees were briefed on pressing social, economic and political issues surrounding STEM education, as well as training in how to take outreach programs and ideas home.

In addition to the STEM education, the program provided sessions on basic volunteer training, interactive workshops honing leadership skills, exhibits on the latest IEEE products and services, opportunities for networking and exchange of best practices, and the IEEE-USA awards ceremony recognizing the best of our U.S. engineers.
