IEEE membership base dues for 2011 will be US $136, a $2 increase. Regional assessments also charged to members for local activities will see no change. For U.S. members, an additional assessment for IEEE-USA and ABET, the accrediting body in the United States for academic programs in applied science, computing, engineering, and technology, will be $42, an increase of $1.
Dues for student and graduate student members will not rise. The fee for society affiliates, which is set at half the base IEEE dues, increases to $68. Affiliates, who can belong to one or more IEEE societies but are not IEEE members, pay that fee for each IEEE society they join plus the membership dues charged by each society.
