The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world’s largest professional association for the advancement of technology. IEEE’s mission and core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. Its vision is to be essential to the global technical community and to technical professionals everywhere, and be universally recognized for the contributions of technology and of technical professionals in improving global conditions. IEEE membership enhances every stage of your career. Whether you are an established professional or just starting out, IEEE membership identifies you as superior talent. Advancing your member grade can bring added peer recognition to your accomplishments. Grade advancement is encouraged because it is required, in most cases, for key volunteer positions at the IEEE. This talk will focus on the various society membership grades of IEEE, their respective benefits to students and professionals, and will provide a framework of best practices in applying for membership or for preparing a nomination for elevation to a specific honorific member grade (senior member, fellow or life fellow).
