Initiate GOLD Affinity Groups in Sections to foster a greater sense of belonging to young professionals while also providing these members with leadership opportunities.
Contact graduating Students and invite them to a Section meeting. Form a committee comprised of members from various IEEE employers in the Section available to act as company liaisons or IEEE mentors for these new members.
Have your Section's SAMIEEE officer provide your outreach volunteers with the names of graduating students and new members to be contacted each month.
Contact a representative at a local college or university to announce special IEEE Student rates, networking or career growth opportunities.
Sponsor a job fair or career workshop and invite graduating Student members where they can network and learn of the values of IEEE membership.
Aggressively promote IEEE membership during technical conferences. Distribute IEEE membership applications to conference attendees or encourage them to apply online.
Use the half-year dues period as a peak recruitment time. This allows people to test IEEE membership for a smaller initial monetary outlay. New members pay half-year dues when they sign up from 1 March through 31 August. Services commence immediately upon joining and continue through December of that year. A member joining in March receives a bonus of 4 months of extra service above and beyond the six months they are paying for.
Announce and provide information on the Member-Get-A-Member and Student-Get-A-Student Programs at Section, Student Branch and Chapter meetings. Information is provided on the Member-Get-A-Member page.
With company permission, post notices of IEEE activities on office bulletin boards and electronic communication. Submit articles on employee IEEE involvement and and show how this can reap benefits for the company as well.
