Request for Nominations for the Distinguished Service Award

The Oceanic Engineering Society is hereby soliciting nominations for the society Distinguished Service Award to honor an individual IEEE member for outstanding contributions towards furthering the objectives of the Oceanic Engineering Society.

Request for Nominations to the Administrative Committee, Class of 2012

Reminder: Nominations close March 15th

The IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society is governed by an Administrative Committee of 18 members. Six are elected each year to serve three-year terms. Members are limited to two consecutive terms, although they may be reelected after a lapse of one year.

The Nomination and Appointments Committee is Chaired by the Junior Past President, with the Senior Past President and the most recently retired Senior Past President completing the Committee. They are charged with proposing a slate of nominees and with conducting the election, which is done electronically to the entire membership. The electronic election requires each member that wishes to vote to have an IEEE account. Therefore, visit IEEE.org to establish your account if needed.

Qualifications for Administrative Committee membership are membership in the IEEE and OES, and a willingness to serve the oceanic engineering profession. The Society wishes to have the Administrative Committee characteristics reflect characteristics of the IEEE membership. We are particularly interested in increasing the Asian and European membership of the Committee. I ask that each of you identify and nominate qualified candidates for the Administrative Committee. Self-nomination is encouraged.

The Nomination Packet should include a Letter of Nomination accompanied by a one page biographical sketch of the proposed candidate with picture and a one-page statement from the proposed candidate giving his or her views of the opportunities and challenges facing the Society and steps to be taken to advance the IEEE Oceanographic Engineering Society.

Please submit nominations to Jim Barbera at j.barbera@ieee.org.
