Volunteers are needed to serve as corporate

Anyone may submit a nomination; selfnominations are encouraged. Nominators
do not need to be IEEE members, but
nominees must meet certain qualifications.
An IEEE organizational unit may submit
nominees endorsed by its governing body or
the body's designee.
A person may be nominated for more
than one position. Nominators need not
contact their nominees before submitting
the form. The N&A committee will contact
all eligible nominees for required documentation and inquire if they are willing to be
considered for the position.

For information about the positions,
including qualifications and estimates
of the time required by each position
during the term of office, visit http://www.
nominations_guidelines.html. To nominate
a person for a position, visit http://www.

Each year many ineligible candidates are
nominated. Make sure to check eligibil-

ity requirements at the N&A committee
website (
corporate/nominations) before submitting a nomination.
The positions for which the N&A committee makes recommendations represent
IEEE's uppermost governance levels.
Volunteers with relevant prior experience
in lower-level IEEE committees and units
are recommended by the committee more
often than volunteers without such experience. Candidates for the Awards Board, for
example, have a greater likelihood of being
recommended if they have already served
on an awards committee of a society, section, or region or on another IEEE board.
Individuals nominated for presidentelect and corporate officer positions are
more likely to be recommended if they
possess a strong track record of leadership and relevant accomplishments
within and outside IEEE. Recommended
candidates often have significant prior
experience as members of IEEE boards
and standing committees.
More information about the duties
associated with the different positions,
qualifications, and eligibility requirements
(such as prior service in certain positions
or IEEE grade) can be found in the online
nominations guidelines.
