Resources For Advisors

HKN Advisors – the Key to Chapter Success

As a Chapter Advisor, you are a vital link between the Chapter, the Department, and the national IEEE-HKN Headquarters and Board of Governors—with the challenge of reflecting the best interests of all three of those parties in the guidance and counseling of the college Chapter and its officers. We thank you for your service and dedication to your students and to HKN! To help you in your role and to express our gratitude, we hope you will join us in Charlotte at this year’s SLC!

We hope you are encouraging your students to join us at the conference, but the SLC is not just for them! Advisors are encouraged to attend and participate in all parts of the conference weekend:

  • Friday workshops
  • Saturday sessions:
    • Chapter development
    • Technical Development
    • Professional Development
    • And more!
  • Sunday Region Meetings

Join us for this Advisors-only session! Share resources, brainstorm ideas, problem-solve and collaborate with others who share your experience. Find and give support while connecting with other advisors.
