Request for OES AdCom Nominees for the Term 1 January 2022 – 31 December 2024
Jerry Carroll, Chair of IEEE/OES Nominations and Appointments Committees
The IEEE OCEANIC ENGINEERING SOCIETY is governed by an Administrative Committee of 18 members. Six are elected each year to serve three-year terms. Members are limited to two consecutive terms, although they may be reelected after a lapse of one year. This will be the thirty-seventh election to be held to determine the membership of our Administrative Committee (AdCom).
This year, the Nominations and Appointments Committee is chaired by the Senior Past President. The committee is charged with proposing a slate of nominees each year. For this election, twelve members of the OES will be nominated to fill six positions on the AdCom for the three-year term 1 January 2022 – 31 December 2024.
Qualifications for Administrative Committee membership are membership in the IEEE and OES, and a willingness to serve the oceanic engineering profession. The Society wishes to have the Administrative Committee characteristics to reflect characteristics of the IEEE membership. I ask that each of you identify and nominate qualified candidates for the Administrative Committee. Self-nomination is encouraged.
The nomination Packet should include a Letter of Nomination accompanied by a one-page biographical sketch of the proposed candidate with picture and one-page statement from the proposed candidate giving his or her views of the opportunities and challenges facing the Society and steps to be taken to advance the IEEE Oceanographic Engineering Society.
The election will be conducted in accordance with our Bylaws. Follow this link to read the Bylaws: ieeeoes.org/about-us/bylaws-of-the-ieee-oceanic-engineering-society/
The Bylaws specify that general nominations close on *March 1*, and nominations by petition close by *April 15*.
