If you have been involved in the electronics packaging field for 10 years or more, chances are that you probably already have the necessary qualifications to be an IEEE Senior Member. Senior membership is the highest IEEE membership grade that can be applied for and is a recognition of sustained and significant performance in an IEEE-designated field. Individuals who are IEEE members can apply themselves for elevation to Senior Member or they can be nominated by others. Since a member can be nominated by someone else for Senior Membership, Society Chapters can play an important role in helping to identify and support applications for elevation. Nominating individuals in our Chapters is a great way to recognize their professional achievements and foster deeper personal and professional relationships with our peers. Individual members shouldn’t hesitate to apply for Senior Member elevation on their own as well, and call upon their IEEE colleagues for support for their application.
