IEEE Member Discounts

Friday, August 29th, 2014

Dear Section Chair:

Do members in your Section know what the IEEE Member Discounts program does for them? Here are some important facts about this program:

*   More than 70,000 IEEE members use at least one of the benefits in the Member Discounts program.

*   Member Discounts products and services are supported by contracts between IEEE and providers, vetted by the professional staff and volunteers.**

*   Member Discounts help to support the personal and professional needs of IEEE members throughout their careers, and are portable when they change employers.

*   Not all Member Discounts insurance plans and product discounts are available in every country; however, members can find many benefits available in a number of countries, with more being added each year.  In fact, the insurance program now spans 84 countries!

*   Member Discounts are promoted at no cost to any member and more than $5.3 million in annual non-dues revenue from these programs benefit members worldwide.

Please help raise member awareness of the Member Discounts program by doing these few simple things:
