Endorsements: All nominations must be endorsed by two BoG Members.  All endorsers must send an email to l.riello@ieee.org stating that they agree to endorse the candidate.  There is no limit to the number of endorsements each BoG Member can make.

President-elect candidates must prepare a statement outlining their vision for the society and how they intend on realizing this vision during their tenure as EDS President. Their past contributions to the Society are an essential part of this statement. Candidates for Treasurer and Secretary are not required but are encouraged to submit brief statements not exceeding 150 words outlining why they would like to run for the position.
