1. IEEE AWARDS PROGRAM ORIENTATION
Honorary Members are elected by the Board of Directors from
among those who
(1) have rendered meritorious service to humanity in the
IEEE's designated fields of interest, and
(2) are not members of the IEEE.
Remark: The AIEE (American Inst. Electrical Engrs.) established Honorary
Membership at its founding in 1884.
2. STIMULATING NOMINATIONS FOR THE 2014 AWARD
No woman has previously received the Honorary Member
Award, and it would be fitting to generate some solid
nominations with a woman as the candidate.
The committee will continue to work on additional
nominations via email to make sure that we can stimulate
additional nominations for strong candidates with this in mind.
The new nomination form and nominator instructions can be found online: http://www.ieee.org/about/awards/recognitions/ honorarymem.html
