Meet the 2018 Board of Governors Candidates

Updated: Voting is now open. Deadline to vote is 24 September at 12 PM (Noon) ET.

IEEE Computer Society members can begin voting for President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, and the Board of Governors on Monday, 6 August. Over the next two weeks we will provide each candidate’s position statement and biography. First up are the candidates running for the Board of Governors.

Eleven candidates are running for six open seats; members may vote for up to six candidates. The candidates elected to the Board of Governors in 2018 will serve a three-year term, from 1 January 2019 to 31 December 2021.

In June 2018, the IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors approved amendments to Bylaws Article II Nominations and Elections. The amendments reduced the number of annually elected Board member positions from seven to six going forward, with the total number of elected Board members changing from 21 to 18 by the start of the 2021 calendar year. The seven Board of Governors elected by members to terms ending in 2019 or 2020 will serve through the end of their terms.

The candidates are listed in alphabetical order. Some candidates have provided links with additional information or created webpages about their candidacy. Continue…
