Join IEEE and get a free Society Membership

The IEEE Conference Member Recruitment (CMR) Program offers an incentive to new members who join IEEE at a conference. Each higher-grade, full-dues paying IEEE membership applicant is given one year of membership to one of IEEE's 38 Technical Societies. The program runs in parallel with the IEEE membership year (16 August - 15 August) and is one of the most successful membership development tools available.

To have your conference(s) considered for this program, you must submit your request via the form below. Once approved, a unique campaign code will be assigned and sent to you.  

NOTE: This campaign code must be on the back of each membership application form in order to be processed correctly. Students and Graduate Students are not eligible to receive a free Society membership through this program. In addition, this offer is not available to former members or renewing members.

The most successful conferences set up a highly visible, staffed membership recruitment desk and recruit a minimum of 25 new members. Supplies for the table may be ordered online through the membership development supply form using your IEEE Account.
