IEEE MGA Operations Manual Change - Geographic Unit Officer Term Limits

The IEEE Member and Geographic Activities Board approved a motion that limits the number of years any one individual may serve in any one geographic unit officer position.

This term limit policy is applicable to the following geographic units: Region, Section, Subsection, Geographic Council, Chapters, and Affinity Groups. Section 9 - Geographic Organizational Units - of the IEEE MGA Operations Manual outlines the new policy within each unit type’s section of the manual. It states that: “All officers shall not serve in any one position, in any single organizational unit, more than six years in total.” The policy also states that “exceptions to this rule require approval by the Region Director who will annually report such exceptions to the MGA Board.”

MGA staff will be distributing notifications to those volunteers who are about to reach, have reached, or have exceeded the six year limit in one position in the same organizational unit. In the near future, additional information will be provided to geographic unit Nominations and Appointments Committees on how to apply this change to their N&A process. Additionally, the vTools.voting and vTools.officer reporting tools will be updated to incorporate the new officer term limitations.

Please contact the MGA staff at sec-chap-support@ieee.org if you have any questions regarding this MGA Operations Manual change.
