Leadership is an action, not simply a position. The IEEE Life Members Committee (LMC), a Joint Committee of IEEE and the IEEE Foundation, provides leadership and support to Life Members (including future Life members) in all activities regarding IEEE. The LMC is also responsible for the administration of the Life Members Fund in support of activities that are of professional concern and interest to Life Members.
