Amendments IEEE CIS Constitution and Bylaws

Dear CIS Member,

On 7 April 2021, the CIS Administrative Committee approved a new version of the IEEE CIS Constitution and the IEEE CIS Bylaws. The goal of these revisions is to provide more effective governing documents for our expanding activities.

The changes with respect to the current versions mainly consist of editorial changes, which bring the documents into compliance with IEEE Technical Activities governance. The most significant modification is the addition of the Vice President for Industrial and Governmental Activities, its reporting structure, role, and responsibility.

According to our current Constitution, the above amendments to the Constitution, already approved by the Chair of the IEEE Technical Activities Board and posted on the CIS web site since 13 April 2021, are now formally presented to the attention of all CIS Members. These Constitution amendments will go into effect unless ten percent of the CIS Members will object in writing by 20 May 2021. Objections should be sent via email to the attention of the CIS President, at address cis-info@ieee.org or via mail to IEEE Computational Intelligence Society, c/o Jo-Ellen Snyder, IEEE Operations Center, 445 Hoes Lane, Piscataway, NJ 08855-1331, USA. 

In addition, the amended Bylaws are also presented to the attention of all CIS members for their information

Thank you for your attention and for being a valued member of our community!

Best regards

Bernadette Bouchon-Meunier

President IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
