IEEE-USA supports public policy and career and member services for IEEE members in the USA.  This talk will include a brief discussion on what IEEE-USA does and will focus on its public policy activities to support future technologies, funding of science and technology, immigration policies that support a path to citizenship and support for engineers and technologists.  I will also discuss the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and what what IEEE and IEEE-USA is doing to help its members as well as society as a whole, to recover from this extraordinary event.  This talk will include discussion of the future of work and the role of technology to enable remote work and new tools to work together in the real world even when we can't be there physically.
