IEEE GOLD

Graduates Of the Last Decade

goldThe IEEE Graduates Of the Last Decade (GOLD) is a program within IEEE to increase the value of services and programs for young members. If you are within 10 years of your first professional degree, you are automatically a GOLD member.

We are currently working to develop programs and provide services within GRSS geared to young members. Current events include a Young Professionals luncheon at IGARSS which was started at IGARSS 2008 in Boston. This event is intended to provide a forum for student and GOLD members to interact with other young professionals and senior members in an informal setting.

Your input is invaluable to GOLD:
- What could GRSS provide to benefit you?
- What current programs do you find useful, what do you not?
- Should more events focused toward younger members be planned at conferences such as IGARSS?
