The terms of all Education Society (EdSoc) officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and four members of the twelve-member Administrative Committee (AdCom) expire on 31 December 2007.
According to the Constitution and Bylaws of the IEEE Education Society, which are located at: http://www.ewh.ieee.org/soc/es/constitution.html, the election of officers for one-year terms and the election of members-at-large of the AdCom for three-year terms will occur at the fall AdCom meeting. This meeting and election will be held in October 2007 during the Frontiers in Education Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA. Those elected will assume office on 1 January 2008.
The President, Vice-President, and Secretary may be re-elected to a second term of one year. The Treasurer may be elected each year for up to six consecutive years. Members-at-large are permitted to serve only two consecutive full terms of three years each. By tradition, the Nominating Committee offers nomination as a candidate for a second consecutive term to officers and members-at-large of the AdCom who are not serving in the last year of their second consecutive term.
The current President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer are not serving in their last year of eligibility, and hence, are eligible to serve an additional one year term. The four members of the AdCom whose terms are expiring are all eligible for an additional three year term. By tradition, all will be offered nomination as a candidate for reelection.
EdSoc Officers with terms expiring 31 Dec 07 (all eligible for reelection):
President, Joseph L.A. Hughes
Vice President, Susan Lord
Secretary, Tony Mitchell
Treasurer, James Sluss
Members-at-large of the AdCom with terms expiring 31 Dec 07 (all eligible for reelection):
In accordance with the Constitution and Bylaws, the Nominating Committee also welcomes, for all officer or member-at-large positions indicated above, recommendations for nominations from the chairs of all sub-societies and standing committees, and petitions for nomination from all society members. Petitions for nomination should include twenty-five signatures with IEEE membership number.
Please send recommendations and petitions to the Chair of the Nominating Committee by 1 October 2007. There is no formal template for a nomination petition; a nomination petition for a given office that names the candidate and contains the signatures of at least 25 EdSoc members will suffice.
