Call for "Nominations for Consideration for the Ballot" for the 2017 elections to IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society Administrative Committee and Office of President-Elect
Deadline for submissions: May 31, 2017
Call: The IEEE AP-S Nominations Committee seeks nominations of outstanding members of the Society to be considered for inclusion on the ballot for election to the AdCom and the office of President-Elect. These nominees will be considered for inclusion on the 2017 ballot.
At the AP-S 2015 Winter AdCom meeting, a new policy was approved that by the year 2017 the composition of the 12 elected members of AdCom would be: 8 from Regions 1-8, 1 from Region 9 and 3 from Region 10. In order to achieve this goal, for the 2017 elections, three of the elected members will be from Regions 1-8, and one of the elected members will be from Region 10. Thus, for the 2017 elections, nominations for AdCom are requested from Regions 1-8 and Region 10.
The AP society maintains a policy that the candidate for President-Elect alternates annually between Regions 1-6 and Regions 7-10. For the 2017 elections, the candidate for President-Elect must be from Regions 7-10. Thus, for the 2017 elections, nominations from Regions 7-10 are requested.
(2) For nominations other than self-nominations, the nominator MUST verify that the prospective nominee fulfills the requirements and is willing to stand for election if selected, and work closely with the nominee to obtain the required information in the proper format.
