A Bad Idea

The following perspective was provided by John Vig, IEEE Past President (among other IEEE roles)
Under the proposed new structure, TAB and MGA lose power, big timebecause:
  • The major OUs will no longer report to the BoD
  • The VPs will no longer serve on either the BoD or the Assembly
  • The major OUs will report to the EB.  This implies that the EB can overrule the Major OUs.
  • The EB will have 10 volunteers (voting) and 12 staff (nonvoting)
  • The EB “Prepares IEEE budget…” This implies that the EB can overrule the TAB, MGA…budgets
  • Whereas TAB+MGA have >70% of the votes on the current BoD, they will have no votes on the proposed BoD, and they will have just 20% of the votes on the proposed EB
  • TAB & MGA will be just committees of the EB, same as the History, Tellers… Committees
