7 What is? Applicant: New member who has not completed the join process – his/her dues have not been paid and processed. Recruiting: Seeking out new (non) members for membership in IEEE. Grace Period: January and February are considered the Grace Period for members who have not yet renewed for the present membership year. They are still considered active members until the end of February when the service disruption occurs. Pre-Arrears: Active members who have not yet renewed for the coming membership year by the end of February. Arrears: Member who has not renewed by the end of February for the membership year becomes deactivated. Recovery: Outreach to members in arrears to renew their membership. Reinstate: Bringing back past members who have had a break in their membership status (not paid dues for more than a year) to active membership. Retention: Retaining existing members by renewing their membership. Slide 7

8 What is? Associate Member: Associate Member grade is designed for technical and non- technical individuals who do not meet the qualifications for Member grade, but who wish to benefit from membership and partnership in IEEE, and for those who are progressing, through continuing education and work experience, towards qualifications for Member grade. Affiliate: Society Affiliate is a member of an IEEE Society. Society Affiliates are not IEEE members and are not entitled to any IEEE benefits or services that are reserved solely for IEEE members. All affiliate benefits and services come directly from the individual IEEE Society offering affiliation. For each society affiliated with, the applicant pays a separate annual affiliate fee plus that IEEE Society's annual membership dues. Graduate Student Member: A Graduate Student Member must carry at least 50% of a normal full-time academic program as a registered graduate student in a regular course of study in IEEE- designated fields. The total cumulative period for a member to hold the Student Member grade and/or the Graduate Student Member grade is limited to 8 years. IEEE GOLD/Young Professional: GOLD is the identification of a segment of IEEE Members who have advised IEEE they have graduated with their first professional degree. GOLD is not a member grade. The members record needs to have a full educational background and graduation dates in order for the identification of GOLD. Student Members cannot be GOLD, but Graduate Student Members can be GOLD as they have graduated with their first professional degree and are in advanced degree program. A member will belong to the GOLD segment for ten years after receiving their first degree. Slide 8
