How to get the IEEE GOLD Table-Top Display for my event?

The IEEE GOLD Table-Top Display can be shipped to any GOLD group for temporary display at events at no cost to the local GOLD group. The shipping expenses are covered by the headquarters in New Jersey and there is no cost to use the display. Just need to make sure it is available and arrange shipment. It's that easy to get promotional materials!

  1. Contact Cathy Downer c.downer@ieee.org to reserve the display. Do this early as the display needs to clear customs at the border.
  2. Let Cathy know if you also need GOLD brochures, application forms, posters, display materials, etc.
  3. Find out if GOLD groups near your geographical location or within Canada may want to use it soon after your event. If we ship it within Canada, it'll be cheaper than shipping it back to US and then to another Canadian location.
  4. After you receive the display, assemble it on a table top similar to the picture on the left
  5. When you're done, use the attached airbill to ship to another location or back to New Jersey if no one else in Canada needs it or someone already reserved it with Cathy.
