IEEE and its members inspire a global community to innovate for a better tomorrow through highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities. IEEE is the trusted “voice” for engineering, computing, and technology information around the globe.
IEEE membership offers access to technical innovation, cutting-edge information, networking opportunities, and exclusive member benefits. Members support IEEE's mission to advance technology for humanity and the profession, while memberships build a platform to introduce careers in technology to students around the world.
As the world's largest technical professional organization, IEEE offers a number of ways to get involved with technical and local communities. These communities are active participants in research and authorship, conferences, and important conversations about today's most relevant technical topics locally and globally.
IEEE sponsors more than 1,800 annual conferences and events worldwide, curating cutting-edge content for all of the technical fields of interest within IEEE. Use the IEEE conference search to find the right conference for you to share and discuss innovation and interact with your community.
IEEE provides a wide range of quality publications that make the exchange of technical knowledge and information possible among technology professionals. This essential content, categorized below, is delivered through the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.
With an active portfolio of nearly 1,300 standards and projects under development, IEEE is a leading developer of industry standards in a broad range of technologies that drive the functionality, capabilities, and interoperability of a wide range of products and services, transforming how people live, work, and communicate.
IEEE offers a wide range of learning and career enhancement opportunities within the engineering sciences, research, and other technology areas. The goal of these programs is to ensure the growth of skill and knowledge among professionals and to foster individual commitment to continuing education among IEEE members, the engineering and scientific community, and the general public.
Train Chapter officers to give mini-presentations on membership value.
Invite Students and Life Members to take an active role and participate in the unit's membership development programs and activities.
Using SAMIEEE, organize efforts to contact lapsed members, especially after the Terminator runs. For Societies, it is a good idea to get in touch with lapsed Society members from among those who have renewed their IEEE membership.
Promote the Half-year dues offer for current members to join a new Society or subscribe to a publication from 1 March through 31 August.
Have your Section's SAMIEEE officer provide your outreach volunteers with the names of new members to be contacted each month to be invited to attend Section meetings.
Send out press releases praising local employers who support IEEE membership and volunteer services.
Sections and Societies can encourage prospective members to attend their events when they offer professional seminars that help engineers to upgrade their skills or maintain licensure. Go to Educational Activities for information on how to develop a continuing education program or visit IEEE Continuing Education Units for information on awarding CEUs to engineers for attending a workshop, seminar, tutorial, or self-study course that meets their company's training requirements.
