Administrative Committee

The IEEE Robotics and Automation Society is managed by the Administrative Committee (AdCom), which consists of 18 elected members and the six officers of the Society.  The elected AdCom members serve three-year terms, with six members to be elected each year. While an AdCom member cannot serve for more than two consecutive three-year terms, they are eligible to serve again after a two-year lapse. The AdCom meets at a minimum of twice per year.
