Is 1 October


Help celebrate the
10th anniversary of IEEE
Day. For some sections,
one day is not enough,
so celebrations now are
held throughout the first
two weeks of October.
A record number of
events are expected
to be held this year to

mark the anniversary.
Last year more than
1,050 events took place.
There were a little less
than 1,000 in 2017 and
fewer than 600 in 2016.
Last year's celebrations included
humanitarian projects,
education programs,
and social gatherings.
It's not too early to
start planning. Check the
IEEE Day website (https:// for updates.
Contests will be held
for the best photos and
videos taken at IEEE Day
celebrations. To learn
more about contest
rules and prizes, visit
the website.
As part of the celebration, IEEE is offering a
US $30 discount on dues
for new members who
join between 29 September and 5 October. (The
offer does not apply to
student or graduate student memberships.) New
members should visit
membership/join and
enter the promo code

Annual Election Begins in August

Look for your annual
election ballot package to
arrive in August via firstclass mail with a postagepaid reply envelope. You'll
also receive instructions
by email explaining how
you may access and return
your ballot electronically.
Those eligible to vote
include new members as
of 30 June and students
elevated to member or
graduate student member
grades on or before that
date. Associate members
are not eligible to vote.
To be eligible, student
members graduating this
year between 1 January
and 30 June must update
their education information
online to be elevated
to member or graduate
student member grade.
Log in to your IEEE
account by 30 June and
confirm or update your
contact information, your
election communication
preferences, and education
information. That will
help guarantee that a

ballot is created for you
and provided to you in
accordance with your
communication preferences.
