About Us
Bringing Together Consultants and Clients
IEEE-CNSV, the Silicon Valley chapter of the IEEE Consultants’ Network, is a network that promotes the skills of its consultants, fosters collaboration among its members, creates alliances with other IEEE chapters, and provides educational opportunities in Silicon Valley.
How are IEEE and CNSV connected?
IEEE-CNSV is organized under the auspices of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers or IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional society. The Institute’s US Activities Board, whose focus lies with issues surrounding the career engineer, began the groundwork for the Network in 1991. Since then, it has grown into a nation-wide representation named the Alliance of IEEE Consultants’ Networks (AICN), of which our Consultants’ Network of Silicon Valley is an affiliate. IEEE membership is not a requirement for CNSV membership.
IEEE-CNSV Goals
Vision
With a membership of over 200 consulting engineers, IEEE-CNSV is a premier source of high-tech consulting talent. CNSV aids in matching clients with consultants through its website and by way of networking opportunities at its monthly meetings. CNSV’s goals include promoting innovation and job growth, as well as adherence to the IEEE professional values as stated in the IEEE Code of Ethics.
