Reasons to Join IEEE and Memorable Moments as a Member

I joined IEEE more than 30 years ago because of my fascination with the profession. My membership opened up abundant opportunities for participation in conferences and publishing, and engaging with Societies and Boards. All of this has encouraged me to continue to contribute. I want to give back to the profession that has given me so much.

Volunteering for IEEE has afforded me many memorable experiences because I have always felt the trust, collegiality, and professionalism of the organization. One of my favorite events is certainly the annual IEEE Honors Ceremony, which validates the societal impact of the technologies we champion. The ceremony highlights the ways in which we touch peoples’ lives as we advance technology for humanity.
