Technical Activities Vision

Technical communities working together to be the preferred home for all professionals, worldwide


Technical Activities Mission

Inspire and engage worldwide technical communities to:

  • foster dynamic interdisciplinary collaboration
  • motivate participation and leadership
  • nurture and promote leading edge innovative ideas
  • empower professionals with relevant knowledge and life-long development
  • provide value


Technical Activities Goals


  • Grow and keep our current publications, conferences, standards, and technology communities at the forefront of quality and usefulness for engineers worldwide while expanding the value proposition for our product lines
  • Revise, modify and create new relevant content in publications and conferences to satisfy all member needs, especially the industry and government engineering community 
  • Create a transparent financial and governance organization that allocates financial accounting (gross revenues, direct and fair allocated indirect expenses) to the IP generation unit and assigns direct/clear organization governance (authority, responsibility and accountability) to S/Cs


Exchanging Resources within Technical Activities:  Review and List Your Projects  

The Projects and Ideas Exchange is intended to increase visibility and transparency of TAB-wide projects, while helping identify opportunities to improve efficiency and project effectiveness across Technical Activities. It is intended to be a living communication resource, not a project management tool. Please list and review yours and other projects on an ongoing basis.
