IEEE “Life” status is automatically bestowed based on age and years of membership. IEEE Life membership (LM) is proof of a strong sustained commitment to the profession.
LMAGs can help to enable Life Members to retain active IEEE associations, contribute to the social good in their communities, advance IEEE´s professional interests and enjoy each other's company. The IEEE Life Members Committee believes that keeping Life Members active and engaged is a key component to the success of the IEEE in local IEEE activities
