I want to join the IEEE and/or the Industrial Electronics Society but I do not know anyone who is an IEEE member as an endorser.
If no IEEE member is known you can provide two references familiar with your education or professional experience in order to join the IEEE. If joining just the Industrial Electronics Society the individual need not be an IEEE member. You can provide the name of someone who knows you professionally (e.g., a colleague or a manager.)
Do I sign up for a full year or half year?
Membership is annualized. During the period September 1 - February 28 only full year applications are accepted. The membership and subscriptions would run from January to December. Back issues are sent for those members who apply for full year during January and February.
During the period March 1 to August 31 half year memberships are accepted. The membership and subscriptions begin with the July issue and end in December. Back issues are sent for anyone joining in July and August.
I want a subscription to one of your periodicals but I don't want to be a member of the Industrial Electronics Society.
If you are a member of any profesional, technical organization, a sister society subscription plan is available. You can also subscribe under this plan if you work for a technical organization.
What are the library subscription prices and why the difference from individual in pricing?
Library rates are typically and traditionally much higher than individual rates for all periodicals. A library is providing a subscription for many readers as opposed to one.
What are the qualifications for student membership?
Student membership in the Industrial Electronics Society also requires an IEEE student membership. To qualify for student level membership you must:
Carry at least 50% of a normal full-time academic program
Be a registered undergraduate or graduate student
In a course of study in an IEEE designated field
I am a full time student and I want to join just the Industrial Electronics Society.
It is a requirement of the IEEE that students join both the IEEE and Industrial Electronics Society.
What are the requirements for a student endorsement?
You need to obtain the signature of the IEEE Advisor or Counselor or a faculty member who is also an IEEE member.
I want to sign up over the phone.
A signature is required on membership and subscription forms. As a result, you can not sign up by phone.
Do you accept purchase orders or can you invoice?
Prepayment is needed. We do not bill and cannot accept purchase orders.
I want to renew my membership.
This can be done either by phone by calling IEEE at 800-678-4333 and providng them with a credit card number or by filling in the IEEE on-line membership reneval form.
How do I become a member in order to take advantage of the lower rate for atttending a conference?
It takes 6-8 weeks to process an application. If there is not enough time remaining before the conference begins and you want to join to take advantage of the lower rate for members, you must contact the conference registration office of the conference you are planning to attend to ensure a photocopy of the application along with the registration form is acceptable.
