HKN Governance
Effective 1 September 2010, Eta Kappa Nu became a part of IEEE, the world's largest technical professional association. The organization, now called IEEE-HKN, follows the governing guidelines of IEEE and the IEEE-HKN Operational Procedures. The Operations Manual provides direction for the day to day operations of the association. Eta Kappa Nu's governing body is its Board of Governors. The Board of Governors determines policy, with the approval of the IEEE Educational Activities Board of IEEE, provides oversight, and acts in an advisory capacity to college chapters. Subsidiary document(s) to the Operations Manual is in draft stage and will be the organization's Process Manual. If you have feedback on the process to share with us, contact us at
