As the broadcasting industry continues to evolve at an incredible pace, it generates new challenges and opportunities, the IEEE Broadcast Technology Society (BTS) provides an ideal way to stay current, and network with colleagues around the world who share your interests. 

Currently we have virtual events scheduled for Education, Distinguished Lecturers, BTS Conferences and our newest event BTS Pulse.  We are developing new webinar content for the Young Professionals, planning future events, and continuing to expand the content library for our Resource Center and attracting industry interest to our Career Site.

All of these opportunities have created a need for more volunteers to serve on the event committees and future projects, as well as the ongoing need for committee members to serve on our Publications, Chapters, Awards, Finance, Women in Engineering (WIE) and other groups within the BT Society.

As BTS is part of the IEEE association with over 400,000 members worldwide, we would like volunteers to engage with a global perspective by:  iStock 1048592720
