IEEE Fellow Nominations Sought
Elevation to IEEE Fellow status is a hallmark of professional achievement and recognizes contributions as an engineer/scientist, technical leader, or educator. Any person, excluding certain IEEE officials, may nominate a candidate. The candidate must be an IEEE Senior Member with five years of service at any level in the IEEE. Because the nomination process involves the completion of a lengthy form and the submission of several letters of recommendation by the March 15 deadline, nominators are urged to begin the procedure immediately to be included this year. Nomination forms can be obtained by email request from the IEEE Fellow Committee. Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important activity of the IEEE. The IEEE Washington Section Fellow Committee is charged with the responsibility of encouraging and supporting the advancement of local IEEE members to the rank of Fellow. The committee can review nominations to suggest improvements and will formally endorse meritorious candidates. It will also offer informal preliminary appraisals to determine the likelihood of a successful nomination, offer its help in answering questions about the nomination process and serve as source of nomination forms.
