[802SEC] Call for Candidates - IEEE SA Standards Board

Dear EC members,

If you or someone in one of your working groups might be interested in participating in the IEEE-SA Standards Board or its Standing Committees, please make them aware of this opportunity.  I will be happy to answer any questions they may have.




The Nominations and Appointments Committee (N&A) of the IEEE-SA Board of
Governors is soliciting the names of candidates to serve on the 2007
Standards Board and its Standing Committees.

The IEEE-SA Standards Board is responsible for:

a) Encouraging and coordinating the development of IEEE standards.
b) Reviewing all proposed IEEE standards to determine whether the proposed
standards conform to the requirements established by the IEEE-SA Standards
Board and whether consensus has been achieved for approval of the approved

If you would like to be considered for the 2007 IEEE-SA Standards Board or
of its standing committees, please note the following rules that apply to
any potential
candidate, and forward a brief, one page bio and contact information to me
at the address provided.


The slate of candidates will be forwarded to the IEEE-SA Board of Governors
Nominations and Appointments
Committee for their review by October 2006, with a final decision to be
made at their December 2006 meeting.

Rules for IEEE-SA Standards Board membership:

1.  The time commitment is four meetings in 2007:

22 March - Piscataway, NJ
7 June - Piscataway, NJ
27 September - Piscataway, NJ
5 December - TBD, Florida
2 December - IEEE-SA Awards Ceremony, Florida - not mandatory

1.  If appointed to the Standards Board, you will also be requested to
serve on one of the Board's standing committees.
This would incur another day of meetings prior to the Standards Board
meeting.  If appointed to a standing committee only,
attendance at the Standards Board meeting is not mandatory, but is
definitely encouraged.  Attendance is expected at all meetings.

2.  This is a non-funded position.  Members are expected to fund their own

3.  Members must have an email address, web access, and a laptop computer
bring to the meeting.  Our meetings use wireless technology.

4. Potential candidates for the IEEE-SA Standards Board and Committees are
encouraged to attend one or two meetings during 2006.  For information on
these meetings, please contact Rona Gertz at
