MEMO: IEEE Constitutional Ammendment

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016

Sent on behalf of Barry Shoop, Karen Bartleson, and Howard Michel

Dear Directors, Directors-Elect, and Management Council, 

In response to the request at the January Board meeting, we are sharing a slide deck to socialize the work being done on the constitutional changes and the proposed optimized board structure.

These two separate efforts are occurring simultaneously but are not interdependent, and are being shepherded by two separate groups. The work on the IEEE Constitutional changes, endorsed by the Board in November 2015, is being led by the IEEE Governance Committee. Work on the proposed optimized Board structure is being led by the IEEEin2030 Ad Hoc Committee.

We hope the attached deck is useful in socializing this important work.

These slides can be shared freely within the IEEE community and will soon be posted at:

Best regards,

Barry, Karen, and Howard

Letter from IEEE President regarding Proposed Amendment to the IEEE Constitution

Friday, January 29th, 2016

Dear Directors, Directors-Elect, and Management Council:

I would like to provide you with an update on the ongoing work regarding the Proposed Amendment to the IEEE Constitution.

A public web page has been posted with information about the Proposed IEEE Constitutional Amendment:

Also, the online version of The Institute is currently running the article: “Proposed Amendment to the IEEE Constitution on 2016 Ballot”:

The public web page is linked from the article. The same article will also run in The Institute’s March print edition, and will be promoted in The Sentinel and SCOOP newsletters.

I encourage you to share this information with our colleagues throughout the IEEE community.

Thank you,


Barry L. Shoop, Ph.D., P.E.
