How to Opt-In to Communications

Managing your communication preferences

Your communication preferences indicate in which manner you would like IEEE to contact you. You may change your preferred contact method by choosing a selection from the drop-down menu.

On this page you may also indicate if there are methods by which you would rather NOT be contacted by IEEE. Simply check the boxes as you update the page.

To manage your communications preferences, follow the steps below.

  1. Log in to the My Account section of the IEEE Shop using your IEEE Web Account.
  2. Click “Communications Preferences” on the left side of the page.
  3. Select “Edit” on the top of the page.
  4. Update your information.
  5. Approve these changes by selecting the electronic signature checkbox at the bottom of the page.
  6. Click “Save,” and your changes will be reflected.

Important Note:  The “Please remove me from IEEE communications not required legally or for the fulfillment of services” option overrides almost any other selection.  You will receive renewal notices, voting notices, and the like, but that is about it.  You will not receive local IEEE communications if this is selected.  The only exception is if you are an officer, where communications that are meant to “notify officers” will override the communication preferences of those officers by virtue of those volunteers having agreed to serve in their role.

Third-party mailings

IEEE allows carefully selected organizations (third parties) to mail relevant information on technical services, continuing education, and conferences to IEEE members to supplement member dues. Follow the prompts in My Communications Preferences section of My Account in the IEEE Shop to indicate whether or not you wish to be included in such mailings.

Membership Directory listings

IEEE or an IEEE Society may produce a printed membership directory. All IEEE members are automatically included with name and membership grade. Follow the prompts in Communications Preferences to indicate whether you wish to include additional contact information in the directory. This may grant you a greater professional networking capacity.

IEEE Annual Election preferences (members only)

All eligible voting members have access to the IEEE candidate election booklet online. In Communication Preferences, you may elect to receive the print booklet or to opt-out of email notifications regarding IEEE elections.

Electronic signature

You will be prompted to approve changes to Communications Preferences via the electronic signature check at the bottom of the page. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page, and your changes will be reflected.
