IEEE PELS Bylaws Changes - 30 Day notice to Members (2022)

Dear All IEEE Power Electronic Society Members; 


This year the PELS AdCom tasked the Bylaws Committee to come up with a few strategic changes to the current bylaws.

 The changes are the following:

1.       Change the name of technical committee 4 (TC4) from Electrical Transportation Systems” to Electrified Transportation Systems.

2.       Change the maximum number of terms for Treasurer from no limit to 3 terms (with a 2-year gap before being eligible for re-appointment).

3.       Change the name of the Vice President for Standards to Vice President for Industry and Standards, and update the description to chair the Standards and Industry Committees. Rename the Industrial Advisory Board Committee to Industry Committee for consistency and to align with its purpose

4.       Change these eligible to be nominated for Vice President positions from current voting AdCom members, to voting AdCom members from the current and previous two years.


The PELS constitution was drafted and given a discussion period of 30 days within the AdCom.   The vote took place at the AdCom meeting on March 25, 2022 and it was unanimously approved by the AdCom Voting Members.


Below is a link to the current version of the approved bylaws. After 30 days review by the membership the bylaws will be set and accepted as final.
