Election Process

Any Academy member may nominate a full voting member for the board and any YPS member may nominate for the YPS director position. You must be a YPS member to be eligible to run for the YPS director position. Self-nominations are allowed and encouraged.

The candidate statements from all those running for the board will be featured in an upcoming issue of Common Sense and will be sent to emeritus, full voting, and YPS members.

Elections for these positions will be held at AAEM's 24th Annual Scientific Assembly, April 7-11, 2018, in San Diego, CA. Although balloting arrangements will be made for those unable to attend the Assembly, all members will be encouraged to hold their votes until the time of the meeting.

The Scientific Assembly will feature a Candidates Forum, in which members will be able to directly question the candidates before casting their ballots. Winners will be announced during the conference, and those elected will begin their terms at the conclusion of the Assembly.
