IIE Puget Sound Chapter Facts:
The IIE Puget Sound Chapter has about 1,100 members of the Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE) from about 20 different companies all
around the Puget Sound area.
About 1,000 of our Chapter members are “Corporate” IIE members from the Boeing Co., the remainder are from 20 other local companies.
We are part of IIE’s Western Region #7, that covers the western third of the U.S.
Our main focus as a Chapter is providing networking opportunities for our Chapter members.
We partner with the Student Chapter of IIE at the University of Washington on several annual activities (Mock interviews, Resume Writing
workshop, and General Career coaching). Our Chapter’s Liaison Officer coordinates with U.W.’s Student IIE Chapter on all these activities.
Our IIE Chapter also provides cash support, guest speakers, and we have some joint social events with the Student IIE Chapter.
We have an IIE Chapter representative on the U.W. Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISE) Department’s Visiting Committee (along with 20
other representatives from local industries, which advise the ISE Dept. Chair).
Our Chapter meetings and activities are open to visitors and guests.
We participate in IIE’s Chapter Activity Report (CAR) program and use this to help plan and focus our Chapter's activities.
We have written Job Duties for all Chapter Officer positions.
We usually have Chapter representatives at IIE’s Annual Conferences, as well as the pre-Conference Leadership Training sessions, and at
IIE Student Regional Conferences.
Our Chapter is an active member of the Puget Sound Engineering Council (PSEC), which has 22 local engineering Societies. We have a
PSEC representative that attends their monthly Council meetings to help coordinate joint activities, such as PSEC “Mentor” Nights with
Community College pre-Engineering students.
We participate in PSEC's annual K-12 Engineering Fair at the Seattle Museum of Flight, display booths from member Societies. The
Engineering Fair targets middle school & high school students and is done in conjunction with National Engineer's Week.
We participate at PSEC's annual Engineers Awards Banquet.
If you have an interest in assisting the local Chapter with your support in one of our activities, please let us know.
