A Note from the IEEE-HKN Board of Governors and Staff

As the news pours in from around the world of Coronavirus-related closures and quarantines and as universities move courses online, we are sending our thoughts to our members and your families.

We have launched and continue to develop a number of resources for our Chapters so that those who earned membership into HKN can still take part in the rituals and events even though they may not be able to hold in-person inductions, meetings and community service events. Please see below a list of these resources.

Your health and safety, and that of all our members, is our priority. Please contact us at info@hkn.org if you have any questions or concerns.

Remote Inductions

The Induction of new members is a critical component in the life and sustainability of our chapters. The society is pleased to present new resources to ensure that each chapter can continue to operate and induct members during the pandemic. Should you have any questions or concerns about the remote induction process, please contact the chair of the society’s Membership & Chapters Committee, Michael Benson
