MGA Operations Manual
Both technical and SB chapters may provide reports in vTools about
- chapter activity
- status of chapter officers
- changes in the status of chapter officers, especially in electing a new chapter chair
If you are not familiar in vTools reporting, please
- collect web information by search word "vtools reporting"
- watch the self explanatory video Technical Chapter and SB Chapter Reporting via vTools

- read more about "Chapter Events and Officer Reorting" in http://campaign.r20.constantcontact.com/render?m=1119785494724&ca=04e58611-1dd8-462d-8adc-963d0cbdf08f. You may find the PDF copy here.
How to Check the Correctness of Status of the Chapter Roster?
1. The chapter officer status i.e. name and email address of the chair and of other chapter officers are listed in IEEE Organization Roster. This roster corresponds to the latest vTools report.
2. Since vTools doesn´t report about the chapter roster the Societies, we should set-up an own chapter roster. This is the basis of the mailing roster of CMD. The CMD chapter roster is available in https://ias.ieee.org/chapters-membership/chapters-by-region.html >> Table: IAS Chapters by Region. This list corresponds to the latest report to IAS CMD.
3. Changes in chapter officer status shuld be reported concurrently via vTools to IEEE MGA and via email to IAS CMD.
