THE INSTITUTE On 1 May, the IEEE Board of Directors is scheduled to announce the candidates to be placed on this year’s ballot for the annual election of officers—which begins on 16 August.

The ballot includes IEEE president-elect candidates as well as nominees for IEEE Standards Association president-elect and IEEE board of governors members-at-large, IEEE Technical Activities vice president-elect, and IEEE-USA president-elect. New to the annual election ballot is the position of chair-elect for the IEEE Women in Engineering committee.

Those elected take office next year.

IEEE members who want to run for an office but who have not been nominated need to submit their petition intention to the IEEE Board of Directors by 15 April. Petitions should be sent to the IEEE Corporate Governance staff in Piscataway, N.J.

To ensure voting eligibility, members are encouraged to review and update their contact information and election communication preferences on the election preferences web page by 30 June.

Given ever-changing global conditions, members may wish to consider voting electronically.
