Membership Development Report for April 2010:
As of March 23, 2010, there were 1288 active members of all grades in the Orlando Section. This is a significant decrease of 185 from the 1573 members tallied on February 25, 2010.Particularly troublesome is that the decrease exceeds the approximately 93 first-year members who were in Pre-Arrears for membership dues at the end of February. This means that many of those removed from the tally for the Orlando Section had been multi-year members who either allowed their IEEE membership to lapse or moved to new sections.
A closer examination of the membership counts by grade for the last three reporting periods is shown below.

The maintenance and growth of the Orlando Section is not a one- or two-person activity. Membership development requires that each active member at any grade in the Orlando Section must engage individually in new member recruitment over the entire year.
