Voting will be conducted during the upcoming IES AdCom meeting in Vienna, Friday, November 15, in the time period of the president-elect's report.

The next meetings are scheduled for:
- Officers' Meeting 2014: Feb. 13-15, in conjunction with IEEE TAB meetings in Los Angeles, USA
Significant changes to the IES constitution and our Bylaws are required by IEEE. Please watch carefully for changes to be posted on the Web site. Synopsis: quorum redefined, only two meetings per year, too many voting people miss meetings and that may get us into trouble with the new definition of quorum, harsh immediate consequences of missing two meetings in a row by a voting AdCom member and suspension of voting privileges for absent senior and life AdCom members.
