Benefits of Membership
IEEE has too many benefits to mention here. Try starting with the IEEE Services page.
One of the new benefits of IEEE membership is the portal myIEEE. This portal is tailored to your membership. Use your IEEE web account to login.
As a member of IEEE, you are eligible for especially negotiated rates on personal insurance, insurance for your business, credit cards and
financial services, as well as on products and services for your home and office through the Financial Advantage Program. Availability of
programs varies by Region and State. Active IEEE membership is a requirement for participation.
We always need good volunteers to help with running the Chapter. Serving as a volunteer can help you in many ways, including:
improve your team work skills
increase your management and leadership skills
increase your network of professional colleagues
improve your knowledge about IEEE and the Engineering Management Society
We welcome volunteer help from members and student members. You can do as much (or as little) as you like and attend only the events you choose. (It's not difficult -- as Chapter Chair I have done all of these jobs!) For a list of upcoming events, see our meetings page.
As recognition for volunteering, you will be listed here on our web page.
The items below are just suggestions. You are welcome to make other suggestions.
