Membership Situation South Australia Section
South Australia Section Total Members Since Year 2000 Formation Date: 23 August 1985
IEEE South Australia Section Membership 31 December 2011
SWOT – Section’s Member Growth Program Strengths small membership most members know each other A core of dedicated volunteers willing to contribute to SA section SA section known for supporting student through student subject prize, conference travelling subsidy Annual Distinguished Lecture Dinner heavily discounted tickets for student and GOLD Joint Technical program with Engineers Australia and IET Weaknesses Limited membership growth due to limited population of South Australia membership geographically concentrated around 3 universities Lack of young volunteers. Significant interstate mobility of graduate student Significant number of overseas undergraduate student Significant number of military engineers rotating with posting cycle Opportunities Low number of undergraduate student membership Increase joint activities between GOLD and student branches Number of military engineers needs educating about IEEE and membership benefits Significant number of military engineers rotating with posting cycle Threats Widely available access to IEEE publications through University or employment Limited membership growth due to limited population of South Australia Volunteering for IEEE not recognized as worth pursuing Significant increase pressure to spend more time on job related commitments Weak employment prospects
