Why U.S. Membership Development is Important • U.S. Assessment ($33) = 90%+ of IEEE- USA operating revenues. • Our member service mission makes it difficult to create and retain non-dues revenue sources (e.g. IEEE Job Listing Service). • The more U.S. members – the more influence we have in Washington.
How Can We Help You Help Us? • Publicity -- IEEE-USA communications vehicles reach all U.S. members. • Our PACE Network gives us direct ties to volunteers in U.S. regions, sections, branches, divisions and chapters. • Possible initiative seed-money from IEEE-USA Voluntary Contributions Fund.
