Please join us in congratulating the 23 LEOS members who became IEEE Fellows this year. It’s a significant honor that is based on major technical contributions, leadership, and service to the Institute and the profession. The number of Fellows who can be elected in a given year is limited to one-per-thousand IEEE members in the so-called “higher grades,” which includes Member, Senior Member, and Fellow Grades.
LEOS would also like to thank the nominators, reviewers, and committee members who put a lot of time and effort into the selection process. It’s a roughly nine-month-long process that starts with the submission of four-page nomination forms, reference forms from between five and eight current Fellows, and other supporting materials. Candidates must already be Senior Members. Each nomination is reviewed, rated, and ranked by the Fellows Committee of an IEEE Society or Council chosen by the nominator. Then, the IEEE Fellows Committee reviews all of the materials and chooses which nominations to recommend to the Board of Directors. Generally, fewer than half of the nominations are successful.
The deadline for Fellow nominations is March 15. For more information , and to learn how to submit a nomination, I encourage you to check out the Fellows page on the IEEE Web Portal at: www.ieee.org/about/awards/fellows/fellows.htm
As a step toward a Fellow nomination later, you may wish to consider nominating someone for Senior Membership, or since Members can apply for Senior Membership, encourage them to do so. Either way, this process is fairly easy and can be done online at:
