IEEE Boston 

Consultants network

    Our Mission

    The Boston Section of the IEEE Consultants’ Network serves three constituencies:  consulting members of the IEEE, business and industry, and the greater public.

    We work for the public good by

    • Accelerating the pace of product and service innovation
    • In consequence, supporting the creation of jobs, revenues and public funds
    • Enhancing the quality of high-impact regulatory and policy decisions
    • Providing public and private education in areas that affect society


    We work for the benefit of business and industry by

    • Providing a user-friendly on-line database and active personal networks, supplying top expertise in diverse fields spanning electrotechnology, IT, project management, business operations and regulatory affairs
    • Making innovation and problem-solving help available cost-effectively and without commitment to long-term overhead growth or distraction from core activities
    • Providing strategic guidance in business development and internal operations based on experience and knowledge that is deep, diverse in industry and geography, and objective.


    We support our members by helping these independent consultants to be more effective by

    • Developing and maintaining top expertise in specific or general areas of practice
    • Discerning strategic trends and reorienting their practices appropriately
    • Facilitating industry's understanding of certain key technologies
    • Contributing to improving the state of consulting practice and content areas
    • Providing coaching and seminars in how to run a productive consulting business for new consultants


    The Boston Section of the IEEE Consultants Network holds regular forums that are open to the public, exploring specialist and general-interest topics ranging from specific advances in hardware, software, systems integration and protocols to relational skills, intellectual property law, technical writing, emerging regulations and policy. These meetings (sometimes co-sponsored with other societies) provide an excellent opportunity for long-term and new members and unaffiliated guests to coach and learn from each other, share professional and educational opportunities, and develop new alliances.
