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 Sept. 30, 2023, and should be accompanied by this short biographical form, filled out by the nominee, along with a profile photo. They can be emailed directly to Darina Slattery, @

An election will be held this year to fill four positions with three-year terms (January 2024 – December 2026). BoG members-at-large must be both Professional Communication Society and IEEE members (i.e., affiliates are not eligible), in good standing. 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, and participate in ProComm activities throughout the year.

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. 

The election schedule will be as follows (exact dates to be announced when known):

  • Online Election opens in early November, 2023
  • Online Election closes in early December, 2023
  • Board Election meeting in mid December, 2023
