A few days ago, I went to the senior member grade elevation meeting held by the IEEE Sweden Section. The meeting was quite interesting and a good opportunity to meet fellow engineers and hear about their careers.
We were divided in two groups of 12 persons each. In my group everyone either worked or had worked at Ericsson Research!
In time, the status of my application will be posted on the IEEE senior member site.
So what are the benefits of senior membership? (Thanks to Peter Parnes for asking.) IEEE lists them as:
- Leadership eligibility
Update 2014-11-16: Yes, everything went well. I am currently a Senior Member of the IEEE.
