Join IEEE and get one complimentary Society membership

The IEEE Conference Member Recruitment (CMR) Program offers an incentive to new members who join IEEE at a conference. Each higher-grade, full-dues paying IEEE membership applicant is given one year of membership to a Technical Society. The program runs in parallel with the IEEE membership year (16 August - 15 August) and is one of the most successful membership development tools available.

To have your conference(s) considered for this program, your request must be submitted via the form below; please allow two weeks lead time. Once approved, a unique promotion code(s) will be assigned and sent to you. The most successful conferences set up a highly visible, staffed membership recruitment desk and a minimum of 25 new members. Supplies for the table may be ordered online through the membership development supply form using your IEEE Account.

NOTE: This promotion code must be entered online (promotion code field on checkout screen) in order to receive the free society. Students and Graduate Students are not eligible to receive a free Society membership through this program. In addition, this offer is not available to former members or renewing members.

Please allow two weeks lead time to obtain your tracking/campaign code.

For all other inquiries regarding the CMR program contact Denise Maestri at, Member and Volunteer Engagement Manager.
