Descriptions of the duties of these officers and eligibility criteria can be found in the CASS Constitution and Bylaws.
CASS is a professional volunteer-based organization. It is essential that we elect energetic and engaged leaders who will organize activities that will meet the needs of entire Circuits and Systems community and who will guide our Society into the future. As a CASS member, you are in an excellent position to know the strengths of your fellow members and how they can best serve our community. As you consider potential nominees, please take into account that CASS wishes to promote diversity in every possible dimension. As such, CASS would love to receive nominations that also complete the current composition of it Executive Committee with respect to, to name a few, technical, gender and geographic diversity.
Complete candidate nominations must be received by close of business (5:00 pm EDT) on 1 September 2018 15 September 2018 (EXTENSION), in order to be considered.
- The first option is to nominate by petition. The IEEE rule regarding the nomination petition process states: “For all positions where the electorate is less than 30,000 voting members, signatures shall be required from 2% of the eligible voters.” The number of signatures required on a petition shall depend on the number of eligible voters, as listed in the official IEEE membership records, at the end of the year preceding the election.” For CASS in 2018, this implies that we need 187 signatures on a petition for a nominee to be automatically placed on the election ballot. Note: Signatures from student members and affiliate members are not allowed. Graduate student members are eligible to sign a petition as well as vote in the election. If you wish to be nominated by petition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by anytime before 1 September 2018. The CAS Administrator will then set up a web-based petitioning system that will automatically authenticate petition “signatures”. According to IEEE rules, a candidate with a valid nomination by petition is guaranteed to be on the ballot. Please note that only signatures received by close of business (5:00 pm EDT) on 1 September 2018, will be considered.
- The second option involves forwarding the nomination form to the Nominations Committee for consideration, which may also place candidates on the ballot at its discretion.
The Nominations Committee greatly encourages you to recommend suitable candidates for these elections. Our strength as a society is not only in our engineering expertise but also in our societal spirit including the sharing of information with each other. This we can do best when we have a strong organization with engaged members.
