Regional elections

The world is divided into ten IEEE Regions, each represented on the IEEE Board of Directors by a Region Delegate/Director who serves a two‑year term.  The Region Delegate/Director (or Region Delegate-Elect/Director‑Elect) is elected by the voting members of the Region from a slate nominated by the Regional Committee.  The Region territories are not necessarily confined to a State or Country boundaries.  When such boundaries are crossed, the State or Country is listed under the Region that contains most of its area.

Only voting members on record on 30 June are entitled to vote for the Region Delegate-Elect/Director-Elect where they reside. Members must hold the membership grade of Graduate Student Member (GSM) or higher.

The ten IEEE Regions are:

  • Region 4 - Central USA
  • Region 5 - Southwestern USA
  • Region 6 - Western USA
  • Region 7 - Canada
  • Region 8 - Europe, Middle East and Africa
  • Region 9 - Latin America
  • Region 10 - Asia and Pacific
