Member Resources

The IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology is a membership organization with activities and discussions that are open to the pubic. If you are a member, this page should help you find information most relevant to members. If you are not a member, we welcome you and encourage you to get as involved as your interests warrant. While IEEE is the world’s largest professional society for technologists, in SSIT we have many non-technologist professionals who are SSIT members, and many interested persons who participate and/or who join SSIT as affiliate members.
