There are many ways you can get involved with the IET. A few of our volunteers share their experiences...
Volunteers are the powerhouse of the IET – leading, sharing, discussing, presenting, steering, assessing, editing and being ambassadors to deliver our vision and mission all around the world.
Achieving the IET’s goals relies on effective “one team” working between IET staff, who provide functional expertise, and volunteers, who provide the reach and technical capabilities to deliver our strategy.
We've created a series of joint working case studies to showcase how IET volunteers and staff are working together to achieve the Institution's goals.
You can also read our individual volunteer case studies below as well as find more case studies from our Members across the different membership and registration categories.
