Senior Member Elevations
Non-student members in good standing with sufficient professional experience and demonstrable accomplishment are eligible for Senior Member status. Though benefits and dues remain the same, the recognition of your peers may translate into improved professional opportunities and advancement. Approximately 10% of members worldwide hold this status.
Members initiate the process online, but are required to obtain the recommendation of three IEEE members of senior or fellow grade. Senior Member Elevation events provide an opportunity for members to meet other senior members and have them review their resumes and potentially provide a referral.
Elevation events are held as needed and at varying location to make them more accessible to members throughout the section, and are sometimes held in conjunction with other meetings. The section occasionally announces the events via emails to those members it believes may meet the requirements. If interested contact the membership committee chair, and ensure your email address is correct in the IEEE member area and that you allow section communications.
