member-only services available on the web. If you already have an IEEE web
account, make sure you keep your logon name and password handy. If you do
not have an IEEE web account, you can register on-line and obtain one -
just click on the graphic. It is important that we keep our logon name and

IEEE E-mail Aliases are available, by clicking on the graphic.
There is no charge and is only for members (any grade) of IEEE. The two
primary benefits are; (a) protection against e-mail viruses that can cause
serious damage, and (b) a permanent e-mail address with a professional
connotation that remains the same as you change internet service
providers, employers, or where you live - you modify your alias target
whenever your real e-mail address changes. Here is a usefull hint - make
your return address in your email program to be your IEEE alias to expand
your protection when folks respond to your reply.
Please note - while the
IEEE Toronto Section (volunteers) will do their best to help you to get
the most out of your IEEE membership, they can not provide individual
references for employment, elevation to Senior Member grade, and other
such situations where a degree of personal knowledge is required. If you
need such references, you may wish to make such personal contacts over
time by becoming a regular participant at our Section, Chapter, Branch,
and other meetings.
