Rewarding Deserving ITC Members

Beyond the scientific activities, ITC’s scope includes nomination of deserving members for awards, promotions to IEEE Senior Member or IEEE Fellow, and for Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society. Individual ITC members can make suggestions for such nominations at any point in time by sending an email to any of the current ITC officers. The officers will review each suggestion and support a nomination as appropriate. The current ITC secretary will also solicit suggestions for such nominations at least once a year via the ITC mailing list.
