Congratulations to the Newly Elected 2021 IEEE Fellows

"On behalf of the ComSoc Board of Governors, it is my pleasure to congratulate our newly elevated ComSoc Fellows," said Vincent Chan, IEEE Communications Society President. "Their contributions to our industry have incredible impact and should be celebrated by the entire ComSoc community. I also want to extend my thanks to the ComSoc Fellows Evaluation Committee, chaired by Steve Alexander, for their hard work in evaluating all of the candidates. We're honored to have our new Fellows recognized with this esteemed distinction and grateful for our volunteers who are dedicated to recognizing the best of our community."

Election to the grade of IEEE Fellow is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon our members by the Institute in recognition of their technical, educational, and leadership achievements. Only a select few IEEE members earn this prestigious honor.
