The IEEE Hong Kong Section Computer Society Chapter (“the Chapter”) issued a call for nomination of 2022 Office Bearers on 21 May 2021 in accordance with the IEEE MGA Operation Manual Section 9 (Paragraph 9.6 E & F).

The Nominating Committee of the Chapter has received and recommended the following slate of candidates for the Chapter Officers in 2022. The slate has subsequently been ratified by the Executive Committee at the meeting dated 9 November 2021.

The slate recommended by the Nominating Committee consists of a single candidate for each office position. All the nominated candidates are the current executive committee members serving the Chapter in 2021, and they have agreed to serve if so elected. In accordance with the IEEE MGA Operation Manual, approval has been granted by IEEE Hong Kong Section (“the Section”) to proceed with the election process with a single candidate slate.

For each elective office, individual voting members eligible to vote in the election may nominate candidates by written petition provided such nominations are made at least 28 days before the date of the 2022 election. The Chapter’s 2022 election will be held at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Chapter, which will be conducted on 24 January 2022. Information about the AGM will be soon available on Chapter’s website.

According to IEEE MGA Operation Guidelines, a petition by at least 2% of the voting members in the Chapter is required. The Chapter has 1930 voting members as of 6 December 2021 on the IEEE Membership Database, therefore at least 39 voting members support is required for a successful petition.
