Remembering IEEE Board Member Roger Pollard - The Institute

IEEE President Moshe Kam pays tribute to long-time IEEE volunteer

It is with great sadness that I have to report the untimely death of Roger Pollard, 65, a prominent British engineer and educator, who was a long-time volunteer of IEEE. Dr. Pollard died on Saturday, 3 December, having been diagnosed with a terminal disease in October. At the time of his death, Dr. Pollard was the secretary of IEEE and a member of the IEEE Board of Directors.

Dr. Pollard had served as chair of the Technical Activities Board (2010) and as leader in several key IEEE volunteer positions—within the IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society (of which he was president in 1998), the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland Section (chair, 1996-1999), Region 8, the IEEE Awards Board, the IEEE Finance Committee, the IEEE Strategic Planning Committee, and the IEEE Publications Services and Products Board. In 2010 he was recommended by the IEEE Board of Directors to the membership as one of the candidates for 2012 President-elect.
