IEEE-USA is the eyes, ears, and voice for technology professionals in Washington.  Join the Cleveland Section on April 29th to hear what we’ve been up to.  

IEEE-USA staff in Washington, D.C., along with dedicated IEEE volunteers, represent technology professionals before Congress, the Supreme Court, and the White House.  They fight to protect our interests and try to ensure technically sound government programs.  

Join IEEE-USA’s Director of Government Relations for a discussion on our role in the public policy process.  Led by our top representative in Washington, Russell Harrison, we’ll discuss what Congress is doing for (and to) us, and what we can do about it.  Our discussion will include:

  • Efforts to create a legal structure to regulate AI

  • Space policy and changes to NASA’s mission and purpose

  • Immigration reform, including changes to the H-1B and EB green card systems

  • Cybersecurity, block chains, on-line privacy and other things Congress doesn’t understand

  • Anything else you want to discuss from Washington or Columbus

Russell is one of IEEE’s most popular speakers, having addressed at over 270 local section meetings across the United States.  He works directly with Congress, the White House and the media, to provide us with unique insights into technology policy.
