9 12-CRS-0106 REVISED 8 FEB 2013 Logging into SAMIEEE Use your IEEE account credentials to login. If you do not recall your username or password, or need to create an account, visit the account portal at An IEEE Account provides easy access to a variety of online services. IEEE Accounts are available to IEEE members and IEEE Society members, customers, and visitors. Access to services varies based on membership and subscription status. After entering your credentials, hit the Log In button. All new members and Society members that join online choose an IEEE Account as part of the process. If you have recently applied for membership by postal mail or fax, then you will be able to obtain an IEEE Account once you receive your IEEE member number by mail. Need immediate access? Contact the IEEE Support Center.Contact the IEEE Support Center Please note that only volunteers who are listed on the section roster will have access to the creating and editing meetings. This ensures that only authorized IEEE members can edit meeting data. Use the reporting form located at to report new volunteers.

10 12-CRS-0106 REVISED 8 FEB 2013 SAMIEEE Landing Page We have found the best way to get a voter list is to use Predefined Queries that have already been built for the volunteer users. When you open the Catalog with the queries, on the left side of the screen, under Shared Folders is a folder named SAMIEEE. Within this folder, you will find Geographic Predefined Queries. You will use one of these predefined queries. The queries are named to describe the results they would produce. Using any of these queries will automatically limit you to only the members in your Organizational Unit and what youre authorized to view.

11 12-CRS-0106 REVISED 8 FEB 2013 Geographic Pre-defined Queries 1) Open Shared Folders 2) Open SAMIEEE 3) Select Geographic Predefined Queries

12 12-CRS-0106 REVISED 8 FEB 2013 Select an Appropriate Pre-defined Query Scroll down Select an appropriate pre-defined query, depending on what election you are running: Section, sub-section, affinity group, or a chapter election. Let us select the query for retrieving section voter list. Click Open
