IEEE membership plays a vital role in advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. As a member, you know the value IEEE membership has had in your professional career as well.
The IEEE MGM program is your opportunity to share the value of IEEE membership with your friends and colleagues. Not only can you take pride in supporting IEEE, but you can also earn awards for you and your local IEEE organizational unit (Section, student branch, etc.) on qualifying referrals who join.
There's no better time to refer a colleague to IEEE. Dues are now 50% off*, with membership benefits through the end of 2021.
*Only new professional members or members with a 2+ year lapse in membership are eligible for half-year dues.
How the program works:
With this program, you could earn up to US$90 in awards that can be used for IEEE dues, Society fees, and/or the purchase of books and publications (excludes merchandise and products).
