Do You Want To Be A Senior Member of IEEE?


If you are interested in becoming a Senior Member of IEEE the Winston-Salem Section can help you.


What are the benefits of being an IEEE Senior Member?

         The professional recognition of your peers for technical and professional excellence.

         An attractive fine wood and bronze engraved Senior Member plaque to proudly display.

         Up to $25.00 gift certificate toward one new Society membership.

         A letter of commendation to your employer on the achievement of Senior member grade (upon the request of the newly elected Senior Member.)

         Announcement of elevation in Section/Society and/or local newsletters, newspapers and notices.

         Eligibility to hold executive IEEE volunteer positions.

         Can serve as Reference for Senior Member applicants.

         Invited to be on the panel to review Senior Member applications


What are the requirements for Senior Membership?

IEEE Bylaw I-105.3 sets forth the criteria for elevation to Senior Member Grade, as follows:


" a candidate shall be an engineer, scientist, educator, technical executive or originator in IEEE-designated fields. The candidate shall have been in professional practice for at least ten years and shall have shown significant performance over a period of at least five of those years."


It is a lot easier to meet these requirements than you might think.


If you will send me your resume which includes your educational and professional experience, I will evaluate it and tell you if I feel you meet the requirements. If in my opinion you meet the criteria, I will nominate you on behalf of the Winston-Salem Section, help you fill out the required forms, and provide the required Senior Member references.
