IEEE HK Section membership increase to record high

In last 6 months, Hong Kong Section recorded a huge increase in membership from 2,700 in early December last year to 8,830 on June 1.

We noted such increase is due to the heated discussions in the Internet Chat Groups stating that high grade members with selected IEEE societies subscription is eligible to register as an ITFC Voter. 

Among 60,000 IT professionals, the newly joined should have aware, and, thus joined IEEE to have their status recognized to get a voting right in the coming ITFC legislative election. We are happy that more IEEE HK Section members registered and contributing the double of ITFC voters this year.

IEEE is the world largest learned society with 400,000 members in 170 countries. Our core purpose is to foster technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity.  Members enjoy keeping abreast the forefront Electrical, Electronic and Computing technical development from IEEE.

All membership applications are directly handled on-line in IEEE Web Portal in USA.  HK Section do not involved any process in such.  The high grade member qualification requirements are the same since 1997 when Hong Kong CAS/COM and Computer Chapter high grade members are recognized and eligible to vote in the ITFC.

IEEE Hong Kong provides a volunteer platform to her members.  We welcome newly joined members.  Enjoy and stay tune in the IEEE volunteer family!!
