Call for Nominations for IEEE CIS AdCom Elections - Term 2015-2017

 

Each year, five members of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society are elected by the voting members of the Society to serve on the AdCom for a 3-year term. The AdCom represents the members of the Society, defines the strategic goals of the Society, approves the plans for the Society's activities, approves the Society's budget, amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws, appoints Society officers, and authorizes the expenditure of Society funds. Members of the AdCom are expected to attend annual meetings and be involved in Society activities.

Eligibility: All members of the Society of grade higher than Student member and in good standing at the time of the election are eligible to be nominated to the AdCom. Each nominee should be consulted prior to the nomination to make sure that he/she is willing to serve. Self-nominations are acceptable. There are two ways to nominate a candidate:

 

1)     Via nomination through the IEEE CIS Nominations Committee. Please email the following: (i) the name and full contact information of the nominee and (ii) a 250-word vita of the nominee, to the IEEE CIS Nominations Committee Chair, Marios M. Polycarpou(mpolycar@ucy.ac.cy),with cc to the IEEE CIS Executive Administrator Jo-Ellen B. Snyder (j.e.snyder@ieee.org). The deadline for submitting nominations to the above email addresses is June 20, 2014. The IEEE CIS Nominations Committee will select the members to be put on the ballot.

2)    Via petition. A valid nomination by petition from the Society's members is guaranteed to put a candidate on the ADCOM electoral ballot. Nominations by petition in 2014 must include at least 134 valid signatures of Society members and need to be submitted in writing (no fax/emails acceptable) to: IEEE CIS President, Xin Yao, c/o Jo-Ellen B. Snyder, CIS Executive Administrator; IEEE Computational Intelligence Society; 445 Hoes Lane; P.O. Box 1331, Piscataway, NJ  08855, USA. Alternatively, petitions and signatures can be also submitted electronically through a petition web site established and managed by the IEEE. If you are interested in opening a petition web site, please contact Jo-Ellen B. Snyder, IEEE CIS Executive Administrator j.e.snyder@ieee.org.
