Membership Development Report for May 2010:
As indicated in the April 2010 monthly report, membership development is a concern for all active members, not just one or two members. New members join a geographic section due, in large part, to the voluntary efforts of local members.
An audit of past volunteerism in the Orlando Section indicates that 400 members in the past have made significant contributions to the Orlando Section through their voluntary activities in both formal and ad hoc positions. Unfortunately, over 90% of these past volunteers have become passive, not involved in local society chapter or Section events. To these past activists who have now grown passive, the Orlando Section of the new IEEE needs your experience and energy now more than ever to further the growth and quality of your local professional community.
As of April 22,
2010, there were 1318 members active members of all grades in the Orlando
Section. This is a modest increase of 30 from the 1288 members tallied on March
23, 2010. A closer examination of the membership counts by grade for
the last three reporting periods is shown below.
