IEEE CIS Member-Get-a-Member (CIS MGM) Program

The IEEE CIS MGM program is your opportunity to share the value of IEEE CIS membership with your friends and colleagues. Not only can you take pride in supporting IEEE CIS, but you can also earn awards on qualifying referrals who join.



How the IEEE CIS MGM program works:

  • Simply submit your referral online to invite your friends and colleagues to join.
  • If you use the online form, your referral will automatically receive an email inviting them to join IEEE.
  • Make sure to have your referral include your name and 8-digit member number in their application. This is the only way we can track your referrals.
  • MGM awards for the 2023 membership year (recruiting activity from 16 August 2021 to 15 August 2022) will be sent by 1 October 2022 to the email address on your member record. Please ensure your email address is up to date in your profile to ensure you receive this and other important membership information. ​Your MGM award may only be used by you and cannot be transferred.

With this program, you could earn up to US$15 in awards that can be used for IEEE dues, Society fees, and/or the purchase of books and publications (excludes merchandise and products).
