Editorial: Becoming an IEEE Senior Member

From the Editorâ??s Desk â?¦

Many readers of the GRID are focused on the technical aspects of their jobs and careers. For those who are IEEE members, I have another aspect of advancing your career â?? establishing yourself as a Senior Member of the IEEE. So (you ask) is this difficult to do? I assure you that itâ??s quite simple, for any engineer/developer or other technical professional who has been working for 8 or more years beyond your undergraduate degree!

The steps are pretty straight-forward, and most can be carried out on-line (at Youâ??ll need three other IEEE Senior members or Fellows who can recommend you. Ah, thereâ??s the rub (you say)! But these others donâ??t need to have a full working knowledge of what youâ??ve been doing; they only need to review your work (to date) in your assignments and to write a short statement in support of the nomination. This can be done, for example, at the upgrade workshop organized by SCV PACE on June 11 (see meeting information).

Here are some of the advantages of becoming a Senior Member:

Recognition: The professional recognition of your peers for technical and professional excellence.
Senior Member Plaque: All newly elevated Senior Members receive an engraved Senior Member plaque to be proudly displayed for colleagues, clients and employers to see. The plaque, an attractive fine wood with bronze engraving, is sent within six to eight weeks after elevation.
$25 Coupon: IEEE will recognize all newly elevated Senior Members with a coupon worth up to $25. This coupon can be used to join one new IEEE Society. The coupon expires on 31 December of the year in which it is received.
Letter of Commendation: A letter of commendation will be sent to your employer on the achievement of Senior member grade (upon the request of the newly elected Senior Member).
Announcements: Announcement of elevation can be made in Section/Society and/or local newsletters, newspapers and notices.
