About ComSoc

Elected and appointed leadership: ComSoc’s Board of Governors

Our members are represented by the Board of Governors (BoG), which includes the office of President, Vice President, Members At Large, IEEE Division III Director, and Directors appointed by the President. Our BoG has the honor of representing a worldwide network of professionals as they oversee the work and direction set forth by ComSoc’s Councils via ComSoc  Boards and Committees. Providing ongoing leadership opportunities within our Society, the President, Vice Presidents, and Appointed Officers serve two-year terms  and the Members at Large serve three-year terms. The President-Elect serves a one year term before assuming the office of President. A Nominating Committee selects candidates for elections and all of our members are encouraged to participate.
