As of Thursday, 16 August, anyone joining IEEE becomes a member for the 2019 membership year. This is a valuable time to promote IEEE membership because any new member that joins in September receives an additional four months of membership at no extra cost.


For information on how you can incorporate a "join" message in your communications, contact Nicole Honan, Member and Geographic Activities, atn.honan@ieee .org

We are planning a migration effort for our dated multisite WordPress hosting service: to a more robust server that will simplify maintenance (backup, restore, migrate, etc) and increase security. This migration is not a complete migration, but an opt-in one to facilitate optimization efforts. If your sites need to be publicly accessible, then you will need to opt into the migration effort. All other sites will be archived after September 31st and they will not be publicly accessible after migration to the new servers.

We are bold. We are imaginative. We see the future of IEEE Engineering in you. And now, we have a student visual identity to serve all 100,000 of us at over 2,000 Student Branches throughout 100 countries, globally. Our new identity couples the IEEE core values and the diversity of IEEE Student and Graduate Student members for all IEEE designated fields of interest.

Stay connected through IEEE WIE International Leadership Summits – global initiatives that provide opportunities for networking, mentorship, and collaboration.

As part of IEEE’s commitment to provide programs that are both enriching and safe for all participants, IEEE has developed new guidelines and procedures for volunteers and employees who participate in IEEE-sponsored activities that include children. 

The IEEE Guidelines for Working with Children were approved by the IEEE Board of Directors and are referenced in the IEEE Civility Policy. 

Senior leadership discusses IEEE’s future direction

The IEEE Presidents Forum is coming to the Colorado State University Alumni Center in Fort Collins on Thursday, 27 September, 2018.  This unique event offers an exciting opportunity for attendees to meet the IEEE senior leadership team.  The event will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. MDT, or via livestream 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. MDT.  The forum is open to current, former, and potential IEEE members.

You can help recognize the efforts of outstanding volunteers by nominating individuals for one of the prestigious IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) Awards.  Each award has a unique mission and criteria and offers the opportunity to honor distinguished colleagues, inspiring teachers, and corporate leaders.
