Election of AdCom Member-At-Large by IES membership

CALL FOR NOMINATION BY PETITION

Dear All Members of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society,

IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) is required to elect four Members-at-Large from IES Members in 2020 to serve IES Administrative Committee (AdCom) for a three-year term from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2023. This presents an exciting opportunity for IES members to make significant contributions to IES future directions, activities, and operations. Eligible nominees are IES members in good standing at the time of nomination and willing to serve the Society.

Call for Nominations for AdCom Members-at-Large was made in March 2020, and many nominations were received by the IES Nominations and Appointments Committee (IES-NAC). After careful considerations, the following slate of nine nominees was approved by IES AdCom on June 20, 2020.

According to IES Constitution and Bylaws, the nomination of candidates by a petition from the IES membership is allowed. If you wish to initiate a petition, you must inform Xinghuo Yu (xinghuo.yu@rmit.edu.au) with a copy to Matt LaFleur (m.lafleur@ieee.org). Following your notification, you will be contacted by the IEEE staff with information on how to obtain the required petition signatures. A nomination petition signed by a minimum of 163 IES eligible voting members must be received by August 7, 2020, in order to place the petition nominee on the 2020 IES AdCom Member-at-Large election slate.

Each petition nominee must submit a photograph, a brief biography (no more than 300 words), a statement (no more than 150 words) to Xinghuo Yu by July 30, 2020

IEEE IES-NAC and staff will prepare the ballots for the election of the AdCom Members-at-Large during August and September 2020. Please pay attention to receiving from IEEE an election notice in your email. Once received, please vote immediately by following the instructions sent for electronic voting.

If you elected to receive IEEE communications by mail instead of email, you will receive a paper ballot with voting instructions.

Thank you for your continuing support in our Society.

With my highest regards,

Prof Xinghuo Yu, FIEEE
