GOLD stands for Graduates of the Last Decade. It is designed for electrical engineers who are IEEE members and no more than ten years past their college degrees. In other words, young accomplished people who are comfortable with technology. If the GOLD description fits you, ask yourself whether you should take advantage of this special status you have, and then look us up. GOLD is a relatively new IEEE program, just getting going in the Mississippi Section. We are in the process of choosing officers for our GOLD council and planning activities for the year 2001. It's a great time to join us, and to get in on the ground floor. Our focus will be on building opportunities to network, providing career training for GOLD members, visiting engineering concerns in the Central Mississippi area, serving the engineering community, and having fun. Even if you don't have the time and interest in GOLD at this point, we would really like to hear from you. Send us a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can add you to our mailing list and inform you of upcoming events. And most importantly, tell us how IEEE can serve you better and help you get more value out of your membership.
