The base IEEE membership dues for next year will be US $139, an inflation-adjusted $1 increase. For the sixth straight year, regional assessments charged to members for local activities conducted by their regions will not 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 $44, an increase of $1.
Dues for student and graduate student members will not change, but those members will begin receiving digital, rather than print, issues of IEEE Spectrum and The Institute. They can switch from the digital to the print version of the publications for an extra $5 per year, or they can subscribe to both digital and print versions for an extra $14.95 per year.
The fee for society affiliates, set at half the base IEEE dues, increases to $69.50. 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 the society.
