IEEE Day 2020: Celebrating Our Potential!

Dear IEEE Region 10 Sections, Subsections, Councils, Affinity Groups and Student Branches,

IEEE Day is celebrating the first time in history when engineers worldwide and IEEE members gathered to share their technical ideas in 1884. IEEE Day’s theme is Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow -while the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s next. IEEE Day is celebrated on the first Tuesday of October. This year, for 11th consecutive year, IEEE Day will be celebrated on Tuesday 6 October 2020 and worldwide celebrations will be held throughout the first two weeks of October.

IEEE Day Team has created a helpful IEEE Day-in-a-Box kit – located under the Resources tab on the IEEE Day website.

The Toolkit section ( of the website includes posters, banners, and other promotional materials that can be downloaded. Event submission platform is now live at

As IEEE Day events will be organized virtually due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I would encourage IEEE Organizational Units in Region 10 to collaborate and promote IEEE Day events as well as encourage members and non-members to participate in all the activities. 

All active IEEE members can take advantage of IEEE Learning Network special offer – 10 courses for USD10 each, using code ILNIEEE2020 from now until 31 October 2020:

Additionally, the IEEE Day Team has partnered with the IEEE Foundation to honor the vast possibilities presented when IEEE members work together.  An individual or IEEE group may choose to celebrate IEEE Day by collecting donations through Crowdfunding.

New higher grade/professional members can join IEEE between 4th October and 10th October 2020 and receive USD30 of their first year memberships using code IEEEDAY20 in the Promotion Code Field.

For inspiration, great resources and future updates, please check IEEE Day website (, follow IEEE Day Facebook ( and IEEE Day Twitter (

Please do not hesitate to contact me at if you require further information and support. Together we will make IEEE Day 2020 another global celebration!

Best Regards,

Mohd Hafiz Ismail
