Welcome to the Northeastern U.S. Region of IISE
Our mission is to provide highly valued services to IE students, people with IE degrees regardless of their current profession and people within the IE profession regardless of college degree.
The Northeast Region includes New England, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. One of seven U.S. regions for IISE, the Northeast is home to 25 percent of the U.S. professional chapters and 16 percent of the U.S. student chapters. But the Northeast is not just about quantity - we also focus on quality. This past year the Northeast was home to four of the seven Gold professional chapters and 3 of the 22 Gold student chapters.
We realize that not everyone lives within the service area of a chapter. To allow you to benefit from your membership regardless of your location and schedule, the region also provides webcasts of some of the outstanding programs put on by our chapters.
Please let us know how we can serve you better by contacting any of the region leaders listed below.
For updates and additional information on Northeast IISE events, go to our Northeast IISE LinkedIn group.

Jobs, jobs, jobs!
I noted in the last several month's newsletter that the IISE website has an extensive job board, which is updated daily with IE specific positions throughout the Northeast. These positions range from entry level to CEO, and are located in just about every state (from Delaware to New Hampshire, Maine to Pennsylvania).
Visit the IISE Career Center. Take advantage of this opportunity, or let your peers know. Also make sure you stay in touch with your local chapter, as they may have additional postings.
