Election of AdCom Member-At-Large by IES membership

Dear Member of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society,

IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) is required to elect four Members-at-Large from IES Members in 2023 to serve IES Administrative Committee (AdCom) for a three-year term from January 1, 2024 to December 31, 2026. This presents an exciting opportunity for IES members to make significant contributions to IES’s future. Eligible nominees are IES members in good standing at the time of nomination and willing to serve the Society.

Call for Nominations for Elected AdCom Members-at-Large was made in April 2023 with many nominations received by the IES Nominations and Appointments Committee (IES-NAC). After careful consideration, the following slate of nine nominees was approved by IES AdCom on June 22, 2023.

Following your notification, you will be contacted by IEEE staff with information on how to obtain the required petition signatures. A nomination petition signed by a minimum of 185 IES eligible voting members must be received by July 31, 2023, in order to place the petition nominee on the 2023 IES AdCom Member-at-Large election slate.

IEEE IES-NAC and staff will prepare and conduct the election of the Elected AdCom Members-at-Large during August and September 2023. 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.
