IEEE Computer Society Elections
The 2023 IEEE Computer Society election has ended. The IEEE Computer Society Election results will be included in the December issue of Computer magazine and in the Computer Society’s Press Room.


Election of officers to one-year terms and of Board members to three-year terms, each beginning 1 January 2024, will be by vote of the membership, as specified in the Bylaws.

The 2024-2026 candidates’ bio and position statements are available in the Meet the Candidates section of this page and will be published in the August 2023 issue of Computer magazine.

Withdraw notice: Another First Vice President candidate was approved by the Board of Governors but subsequently withdrew from the slate for reasons beyond their control. Following IEEE election policy, the IEEE Computer Society’s request to run a single candidate slate was approved by the IEEE Vice President for Technical Activities.

The IEEE CS Town Hall is now available at the Digital Library and YouTube.

Proposed Amendments to the IEEE CS Constitution

As established in the IEEE CS Constitution, Computer Society members annually elect a first vice president and a second vice president, each for a one-year term. Beginning last year, based on recommendations from the IEEE CS Nominations Committee and the IEEE CS Constitution and Bylaws Committee, the IEEE CS Board of Governors has been discussing options for the vice presidential positions. At its June 2023 meeting, the IEEE CS Board unanimously endorsed proposed constitutional amendments to reduce the number of elected vice presidents from two to one.

The proposed Constitutional amendments are below with revisions indicated strikethrough text. Only the revised sections are included; sections without revisions were omitted.

For the complete Constitutional sections see:

IEEE CS Constitutional Amendments_Articles III & IV.pdf

Key Rationale:
The rationale to have one elected vice president is the challenge of attracting vice presidential nominees. There has also been confusion about the first and second vice president roles. There is no clear set of duties for either position, other than being in the line of succession for the presidency.

Governance Actions: The IEEE Computer Society Board of Governors has approved these amendments and the IEEE Technical Activities Board has administratively approved these amendments. IEEE CS members will vote on the amendments in conjunction with this year’s election scheduled to begin on 7 August 2023. Final approval of the amendments requires approval by at least two-thirds of the votes cast by the Society’s membership in this ballot.

If the amendments to reduce to one elected vice president are approved, it will not affect this year’s election results. The 2024 Board of Governors will have two elected vice presidents. The reduction to one vice president will begin with the 2025 Board.
