IEEE LOGO GUIDELINES
 
Seven working groups of volunteers and staff are examining the uses of the
IEEE logo and developing identity standards recommendations. The groups'
recommendations will be presented to the Board of Directors in November.
Until then, there are interim guidelines that should be used. They can be
found on the IEEE Web site at http://www.ieee.org/. Once logged onto the
site, click "About the IEEE" and then "IEEE Branding & Interim Logo
Guidelines." Or, access the page directly at
http://www.ieee.org/organizations/committee/branding/guidelines.html.
 
The guidelines can be used for the IEEE visual identity of all new
applications such as product/service identification, print and web
promotions. Existing applications should remain unchanged until new
standards are approved and usage manuals are issued.
 
For additional information contact Helen Horwitz, IEEE Corporate
Communications, h.horwitz@ieee.org.

SGS AND MGM PROGRAMS OUTPACE 1999
 
The Student-Get-A-Student (SGS) and Member-Get-A-Member (MGM) programs have

month remaining in this year's program, SGS recruiters have signed up
nearly 2,000 more student members than for all of 1999.
 
Recruiters are awarded cash prices and/or chances to win a free year 2001
