June 2013 E-Newsletter

From the Editor

Welcome to the June 2013 issue of the IEEE MTT-S e-newsletter; the official monthly e-newsletter for MTT-S members.

The MTT-Society sponsored the International Microwave Sysmposium (IMS) earlier this month. MTT-S members were invited to take a survey at the conference in exchange for an MTT-S member's gift. We asked members if they had ever volunteered for any Society efforts. Over 56% said they had, but that leaves over 43% who have not participated in MTT-S efforts other than as an attendee. When asked why they had not become involved, the dominant answer with over 77% stated that they had not become involved because they had never been asked to volunteer.

There is a clear message to our busy volunteers. They next time you are working on MTT-S efforts, think about asking another member for help. Involvement is the key to strong membership.
