The IEEE Professional Communication Society is managed by a Board of Governors comprising 12 volunteers who work to assure that our society serves its members and the field of technical and professional communication. If you are interested in a higher level of involvement in the society and IEEE, we invite you to consider being a candidate for the Board. Nominations are due by September 1, 2020, and should be accompanied by this short biographical form, filled out by the nominee.

An election will be held this year to fill four positions with three-year terms. BoG members-at-large must be both the Professional Communication Society and IEEE members (i.e., affiliates are not eligible). Each year, half of the open positions for Board members-at-large will be elected by the members of the Society. The other half will be elected by the Board.

Board members commit to attend Board meetings each year; typically one of the meetings is a face-to-face meeting at International Professional Communication Conference (ProComm) and some of them are held virtually. Board members also engage in e-mail discussions between meetings.

Each member-at-large has an opportunity to provide leadership in the society by, for example, chairing a standing or ad hoc committee, serving as a society officer, or playing a lead role in an upcoming ProComm conference.

If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please contact Suguru Ishizaki, Chair of the Nominating Committee, at
