Induction Materials

To continue the ongoing traditions of IEEE-HKN, chapters should follow the induction ritual script each induction. The script should be practiced in person by the chapter officers at least once before the induction. Note: Other than the president and vice president, all indicated officer titles are optional, and the chapter may assign roles as deemed appropriate to other members of the induction panel. It is strongly encouraged that female officers or members of the chapter present material associated with Drs. Hopper and Clarke.

Remote Inductions

Should you have any questions or concerns about the remote induction process, please contact the chair of the society’s Chapters & Ritual Committee, Michael Benson
