Call for Volunteers
Signal processing is the science behind our digital life – a message we’ve been working to spread as part of our IEEE SPS visibility campaign. In phase one, we completed a new website to serve as a comprehensive resource for professionals, educators, students and the general public. Now that it’s officially launched at www.signalprocessingsociety.org, we’re turning our attention toward the next phase – aiming to broaden public awareness of, increase interest in, and begin generating demand for IEEE SPS expertise – and we want our robust group of members to be part of our journey. Drawing on your unique skills and areas of expertise, would you be interested in supporting SPS’ visibility initiative in one or both of the following ways?
- Content creation – drafting a blog post about an interesting, timely application of signal processing showcasing how signal processing is “The Science Behind Our Digital Life.” Blogs will then be used as fodder for media opportunities with trade and mainstream publications. Blogs should be educational, written for a general, non-technical audience, and 500-800 words.
- Social media support – amplifying our message via your social media platforms. This includes proactively sharing campaign content on social platforms, driving conversation within appropriate LinkedIn groups, and more.
To be involved, please note that we ask all visibility volunteers to:
- Be responsive and accessible (Note: volunteers should be able to commit 2-4 hours per month. Responses for requests for interviews and content/article draft approval, particularly with external media, may be required within 48 hours)
- Show interest in and enthusiasm for communication efforts
- Draft articles and contribute to content upon request with support from our public relations partner Stern Strategy Group
If interested in participating, please email SPS Membership and Content Administrator Jessica Perry at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and next steps.
On behalf of IEEE SPS, we hope to work together with you on this visibility initiative!
