Requesting a Speaker

The Systems Council DL program is primarily for Chapters and Sections, however any IEEE entity may make a request. 

To request a speaker:

  • Contact the speaker for their availability and establish a tentative date for the talk. Speaker information may be found here.

  • At least six weeks before the tentative talk date, complete and submit a speaker request form, which will be sent to to the Systems Council DL Program Chair for authorization.

Note: Financial reimbursements will not be provided without prior authorization.

The requestor is responsible for providing the speaker with details regarding the presentation site, expected attendance, and other arrangements. The speaker provides the chapter with travel arrangements and presentation needs (audiovisual, helpers, materials, etc.).

During the presentation, the chapter officer should keep a record of the topic, total attendance, and notes on technical content, oral, and overall presentation. Afterwards, the chapter officer should fill out the Evaluation Form, and send it to DL Program Chair as soon as possible, but no later than one month after the event.

A chapter may arrange up to three DL visits per calendar year. Approvals must be obtained in advance. Additional visits can be requested subject to the availability of funds, with preference given to those chapters who have not requested a speaker during the program year.

If you have questions, please contact the DL Program Chair.
