AWARDS – FELLOW NOMINATIONS DEADLINE MARCH 01,2017
By Jesse Taub, IEEE LI Section Awards Chairman
The IEEE solicits nominations for the Fellow grade each year. The 2016 nominations are due at IEEE headquarters on March 1, 2017. The Fellow grade recognizes members whose technical or managerial contributions have been recognized as distinguished. The nomination procedure is arduous requiring at least five IEEE Fellows to serve as References and a strong Endorsement from one of the IEEE’s many Societies. Furthermore, the candidate’s accomplishments must be documented. This usually means publications in peer reviewed journals or patents. Instructions and nomination forms can be obtained by going to: ieee.org and then type in Fellow Nominations in the search box. I encourage all of us to look for worthy candidates.
If you know of any engineer who may qualify for Fellow, please contact me. Our Awards Committee will evaluate each candidate and send in a Section Endorsement for any worthy individual. We will also assist the nominator to ensure that the nomination form is properly processed. I can be reached at: email@example.com if you wish to nominate someone.
