Welcome to the Northeastern U.S. Region of IIE
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 IIE, 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 IIE events, go to our Northeast IIE LinkedIn group.

Message from Region Vice President - Kevin Drevik
Time to Vote!
No, I don't mean the national election, I mean for the new Regional Vice President of the Northeast Region of IIE!
Region Vice Presidents are part of the Regional Operations Board or International Council. RVPs serve three-year terms and represent the needs of the members in their region by supporting chapters and the regional communities. They are responsible for providing support for chapter and region leaders and working closely with them to foster strong relationships between the chapters, regions, members and IIE as a whole. Region vice presidents report directly to the senior vice president, regional operations. More from the region vice president

One of the latest features offered by IIE is the library of webinars, available to members to review. Simply log onto the website, go to the Training tab, and scroll down to Webinars. Or you can click here.
The webinars page holds more than 80 webinars to date on such topics as careers, health systems, lean, Six Sigma and process improvement. Just click and go! It’s an especially useful tool for IIE professionals outside the boundaries of the 10 professional chapters. It’s also useful for students seeking further guidance on careers and potential duties in IIE.
Take advantage of the efforts of IEs, as we all try to improve ourselves, our companies, and the world in general.
Jobs, jobs, jobs!
I noted in the last several month's newsletter that the IIE 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 IIE 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.
