Well having that post coming up, you will need to keep up with technology and current affairs as part of your CPD, and the IET will enable you to do that via online access and magazine subscription. You also get access to a lot of member events that Joe public will never see.

Hi there,

I am very supportive of the IET, but this is the problem, what is the reason for joining?

In my opinion, the reasons that Pete mentioned are totally void (sorry!), how can anyone use the IET to keep up to date in their sector? Not through E&T, because that has as much Engineering in it as a football mag. I'm a power Engineer, and all that is in there for me is endless articles about wind turbines, PV and oil rigs.

Fair enough there is access to journals (at a cost), but most people who need these have access anyway (University accounts, work access etc).

Also, most events and courses are open to non members anyway. Granted, it takes member effort to put them on, and some LNs have excellent events.

The Professional home for life is a strong pull, but this needs to be supported by sector relevant publications and real support for members in the careers, (and after as well).

Regards,

Simon
