Please join our Fireside chat with Mary Ellen Randall, as we learn about the MOVE (Mobile Outreach Volunteer Engagement) Initiative. We will learn how the initiative started, the amazing impacts that it has made to communities throughout the country and the international growth of the MOVE Global Initiative. Upcoming sessions and volunteer opportunities will also be discussed providing details on how you can volunteer or support this impactful initiative.
MOVE is an IEEE-USA initiative where IEEE volunteers help with both natural disaster relief and STEM educational efforts. Centered around the MOVE truck and its capabilities, MOVE volunteers learn about the truck capabilities, how to operate safely as a MOVE team member, what to expect on a deployment and what is expected. Come join the exciting MOVE team and provide comfort for people who have been impacted by a natural disaster.
