IEEE-USA is the eyes, ears and voice of America’s technology professionals in Washington, D.C., and the state capitals. Dedicated volunteers and experienced staff work directly with our nation’s leaders to craft technically sound solutions to the challenges facing the country and technology professionals.  Priority issues include:

  • Artificial Intelligence: How can policy-makers help advance this emerging technology and ethically integrate AI systems into society?
  • High-skill Immigration: We fight to protect American and non-American workers in the United States to ensure a strong, prosperous high-tech workforce.
  • Research: We promote basic and applied research at agencies including NASA, NIST and the NSF by fighting to protect their budgets and allow researchers to use research dollars more efficiently.
  • Intellectual Property: As the leading voice for small and independent inventors, we fight for a patent system that is accessible to all innovative people.
