AdCom manages the affairs of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS). It is made up of 18 members-at-large, plus ex-officio members.

Nominations and Appointment Committee is inviting nominations for President, Administrative Vice President, and Technical Vice President and 6 AdCom Members-at-Large of DEIS.

The persons nominated must be IEEE-DEIS members in good standing.

Traditionally, AdCom has maintained a balance in representation between the industrial and academic communities.


AdCom Members-at-Large:

Each year, 6 members-at-large are elected to serve a 3-year term on the DEIS AdCom. No Member-at-Large can serve more than two consecutive terms.

AdCom meets twice a year and Members-at-Large are strongly encourged to attend most meetings. IEEE DEIS does not cover travel expenses to attend AdCom meetings.

Candidates for Members-at-Large will be elected by the membership of the Society by electronic or postal ballot conducted by IEEE staff. The persons elected or appointed will begin their 3-year service on 1 January 2018.

The deadline for the Members-at-Large nominations is 2 June 2017.

Self-nominations are permitted.

Members-at-Large candidates should provide a picture, a short bio, and a candidate statement.

Examples from previous elections will be e-mailed to potential candidates upon request.

President, Administrative Vice President, and Technical Vice President are the Officers of the society and serve a 1-year term and are eligible to serve for a second term.

The Officers for 2018 will be appointed by AdCom at its meeting in the autumn of 2017.

The deadline for nominations for the Officers is 31 August 2017.
