Did you know that the majority of people join IEEE because they've been encouraged to do so by a colleague, classmate or professor? That said, it is especially important that someone from your Section or Chapter outreach to these new members. It only takes a moment and you will be surprised at the impact. You may begin by simply welcoming them to IEEE, and provide information about the next meeting, event or activity in your Section.
Sample Communications to New Member:
Welcome to the <IEEE Section>,
I want to formally welcome you to your local IEEE network. IEEE has over 300 local Sections worldwide to provide a more personalized experience for our members, offering activities and events tailored to the needs of our engineering and technical community.
The <IEEE Section> will provide you with numerous opportunities to meet other professionals who share your passion for technology. I encourage you to join us at one of our upcoming Section meetings and/or events. A schedule can be viewed at <Section website URL>.
It is an honor to be one of the first to congratulate you on joining IEEE, and I look forward to meeting you in person. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about your membership, and how to participate in our Section.
<Name>, <Officer>, <IEEE Section>,<Contact information>
