The IEEE Ottawa Joint chapter of the Technology Management Council, Professional Communication Society and Society on Social Implications of Technology (TM14/SIT30/PC26) was created in 2008 to better serve members interested in engineering management, technology management, social implications of technology, and professional (written, web, etc) communications. PCS is dedicated to understanding and promoting effective communication in engineering, scientific, and other technical environments. Its interests include the study, preparation, production, delivery, use, improvement, and promotion of human communication in all media in engineering and other technical and professional environments.
SSIT focuses on environmental, economics, health, and safety implications of technology; engineering ethics and professional responsibility; engineering education in social implications of technology; history of electrotechnology; technical expertise and public policy; peace technology; as well as on social issues related to energy, information technology and telecommunications.
The Technology Management Council (TMC) was formed in 2007 as new structure for the Engineering Management Society (EMS). Chapters which were EMS Chapters in 2007, including the Ottawa EMS Chapter, are now TMC chapters. The TMC member societies are:
Broadcast Technology Society, Circuits & Systems Society, Communications Society, Computer Society, Electromagnetic Compatibility Society, Electron Devices Society, Industrial Electronics Society, Photonics Society, Professional Communication Society, Reliability Society, Signal Processing Society, Solid State Circuits Society, Systems Man and Cybernetics Society, Vehicular Technology Society
