IEEE Geographic Unit Officer Term Limits

The IEEE Member and Geographic Activities (MGA) 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, Chapter, and Affinity Group.

Section 9 of the IEEE MGA Operations Manual: Geographic Organizational Units - includes the new policy. 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.

Please e-mail MGA staff with questions about this process.
