IEEE Policy 13 provides guidance for event/conference organizers and editors on how election material is distributed (in person, via email, online, in publications, and in IEEE meetings/events), how presentations are to be made in IEEE meetings, and how statements for publication are to be sought and presented. This policy explains routine and non-routine non-electioneering activities of candidates in conferences, meetings, and publications, and scenarios where some candidates may hold volunteer positions that provide them with access and travel to IEEE meetings and conferences, and/or give them an opportunity to address wide audiences or present technical talks due to their volunteer responsibilities. Please keep in mind that Organizational Units shall not endorse candidates or petitioners and publish documentation that included endorsements or quote endorsements. Eligible voters will cast their vote based on informed decisions.
IEEE Policy 14 states how IEEE mailing lists and rosters may be used by IEEE. IEEE mailing lists or other resources may not be used for individual campaign activities and they may not be provided to candidates, petitioners, or supporters for this use. IEEE encourages Organizational Units to use social media for communication, collaboration, data sharing, and content development in a manner that is consistent with IEEE’s mission and objectives. The use of IEEE social media is permitted in elections when the content informs members about the upcoming election and related processes, the views of all candidates, or other items that will appear on the ballot.
