Recent Amendments to the IEEE CAS Society Governing Documents
At its 28 May 2022 meeting, the Board of Governors (BoG) of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society passed amendments to the Society’s Constitution document updating the Field of Interest (FoI) to what is and has been our operating FoI, as well as general updates to bring the document to operational standards.
Procedures require approval by the Vice President (VP) of IEEE Technical Activities Board (TAB), which has already been secured, followed by a 30-day period for member objection. Publication here fulfills the latter portion of this approval requirement. The amendments are considered approved unless two percent or more of the Society’s membership objects, in writing, within the 30 days of publication - by 13 July 2022.
