The Board of Governors is the governing body that oversees the activities of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. The SPS BoG has the responsibility of establishing and implementing policy, and receiving reports from its standing boards and committees. The Board of Governors is comprised of the following 21 Society members: seven officers of the Society who are elected by the Board of Governors, nine Members-at-Large elected by the voting members of the Society, and four Regional Directors-at-Large elected locally by Society voting members of the corresponding region. The seven officers are: the President, the President-Elect, the Vice President-Awards and Membership, the Vice President-Conferences, the Vice President-Finance, the Vice President-Publications and the Vice President-Technical Directions. The Executive Director of the Society shall serve ex-officio, without vote.

Members-at-Large represent the member view point in the Board decision-making. They typically review, discuss, and act upon a wide range of items affecting the actions, activities, and health of the Society.
