There are several levels of IEEE PES SPDC participation. Besides visiting the related Web sites there are increasing levels of involvement as listed below.
Subscribed Broadcast Email and Really Simple Syndication (RSS)
This is a broadcast e-mail list. By subscribing, you will receive SPDC news updates on meetings, projects, ballots and publications. The server will only distribute messages from the List Owner, so you will not be receiving discussion e-mails from List members. There is a tool for discussion and questions on an SPDC Web site.
Where available, clicking on the RSS symbol provides a link to enable the latest Web site changes to be sent to you. RSS feeds can be read using either your browser or an RSS reader/aggregator or set up to come in as an email.
Having an IEEE Web Account is a prerequisite for the participation in many activities. The IEEE Web Account is free and is obtained by completing the Web-based application form. You will then have an IEEE Web Account User Name and Password. IEEE members, who pay their dues via the Internet, will already have an IEEE Web Account linked to their IEEE membership number.
IEEE PES Surge Protective Devices Forum (needs a Web Account)
The IEEE PES Surge Protective Devices Forum is one of the IEEE Online Communities. Using your IEEE Web Account User Name and Password you can join Surge Protective Devices Forum. The password-protected Forum is a companion tool to the STDS-SPD Listserv Broadcast Mailer and the open IEEE-SA SPDC Grouper site. The Forum provides user interaction and the ability to post content.
This site is used for document development; reporting Working Group process, discussions and archiving. There are two levels of access; public and private. The private areas are only visible to authorised SPDC members. These private areas contain sensitive information like full draft standards.
myProjectTM and myBallotTM (needs a Web Account and IEEE-SA membership to vote in ballots)
myBallot™ is an electronic balloting system for standards review within myProjectTM.. Using your IEEE Web Account User Name and Password for login, you register with myBallot™ by setting your interest profile. When a standard matching your profile comes to ballot you will be informed by e-mail. Those who wish to join the Ballot Group just log-on to myBallot™ and enrol themselves in the balloting group. To participate in such a ballot you either have to be an IEEE-SA member or pay a single ballot participation fee.
