IEEE Dielectrics and Electrical Insulation Society (DEIS)
2023 CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
DEIS ADMINISTRATIVE COMMITTEE (AdCom)
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.
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.
Each year, 6 members-at-large are elected to serve a 3-year term on the DEIS AdCom. Members-at-Large may not serve more than two consecutive terms.
AdCom meets at least twice a year, and members-at-large are strongly encouraged to attend meetings in person. Please note that DEIS usually does not cover travel expenses.
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 2024.
The deadline for the member-at-large nominations is 1 June 2023. 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 provided to potential candidates upon request.
The officers of the society are the president, administrative vice-president, and technical vice-president. The officers serve a 1-year term and are eligible for reappointment to a second term. The officers for 2024 will be appointed by AdCom at its meeting in the autumn of 2023.
The deadline for officer nominations is 1 August 2023. Self-nominations are 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.
