IEEE was the first association that I became member of quite a long time ago as a student. It was a very exciting first step in my life. I read so many stories from different magazines of the association and followed the latest technological developments month by month through them. I chose conferences from IEEE, I still sit on several technical committees for some of these conferences, I became a senior member of IEEE and I am very proud of that. So for a very long time now, it is one of the few things that never changed in my life.
