AdCom 2022 Call for Nominations


AdCom manages the affairs of the IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS). It is made up of 18 members-at-large, plus 6 ex-officio members. The DEIS Nominations and Appointment Committee is inviting nominations for President, Administrative Vice President, Technical Vice President and 6 AdCom Members-at-Large of DEIS. The persons nominated must be IEEE-DEIS members in good standing (affiliate members are not eligible). Traditionally, AdCom has maintained a balance in representation between the industrial and academic communities. In addition, we are trying to achieve representation from all regions of the world: The Americas (regions 1 through 7 and 9), Africa/Europe (region 8), and Asia/Pacific (region 10). Finally, we strive to enhance the diversity of our governing bodies.

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 encouraged to attend most meetings.  IEEE DEIS usually does not cover travel expenses to attend AdCom meetings. Candidates for Member-at-Large positions 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 2023. The deadline for the Member-at-Large nominations is 1 July 2022. Self-nominations are permitted, but the final slate of candidates will be selected by the Nominations and Appointments Committee with an emphasis on diversity. Member-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.

DEIS Officers:
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 2023 will be appointed by AdCom at its meeting in the autumn of 2022. The deadline for nominations for the Officers is 1 August 2022. Self-nominations are also permitted. Each nominee will be contacted by the Nominations & Appointments Committee and will be asked to submit information relevant to the election and appointment process.
