Ten IEEE offices, including those of the President and Vice President, must be filled this fall in the Institute's annual election. This means, of course, that the postman will shortly be delivering the ballots upon which IEEE voting members can indicate their preferences. To facilitate the process, IEEE Spectrum is publishing, as it does each year, brief statements by the candidates. For those who are unfamiliar with IEEE procedures, we shall review the Institute's election process: The IEEE Constitution provides that the President, as well as one of the three Vice Presidents, of IEEE be directly elected by voting members. The names of candidates for these offices, unless the result of petition, are selected and submitted by the Nominations and Appointments Committee. Those elected will serve for one year. Also appearing on the ballot are nominees for Regional Delegate/Director, as submitted by the Regional Committees, and for Divisional Delegate/Director. Directors are elected for two-year terms, with elections occurring in alternate years for even- and odd-numbered Divisions and Regions.
