To be eligible to vote in the 2016 election, your membership with AAEM must be up-to-date for the 2016 year. To renew please visit www.aaem.org/renew or call 800-884-2236 to renew today.

You may cast your vote electronically or download a paper ballot above. You may submit ballots by mail to AAEM Elections, 555 E. Wells St., Suite 1100, Milwaukee, WI, 53202. Please note that the paper ballot will supersede all online voting ballot submissions and all previously submitted ballots will be discarded.


To ensure clear planning and leadership succession each term, the AAEM board of directors has introduced a president-election position on the board. This officer will serve a two-year term as president-elect and then transition to a two-year term as president. The 2016 election is unique in that both a president and president-elect will be elected this transition year. In 2018, only a president-elect position will be included on the ballot.

Scientific Assembly

If you will attend the Scientific Assembly:

  • We recommend that you do not complete your official ballot at this time. There will be a Candidates’ Forum held during the Scientific Assembly (February 18, 2016 from 2:00-3:30pm) where you can hear the candidates respond to direct questions from the voting membership. You will be asked to submit your ballot at the conclusion of that Forum. Winners will be announced during the conference, and those elected will begin their terms at the conclusion of the Assembly.
  • If certain of your choices or unsure if you will attend the Forum, you may vote online by accessing the ballot above. Voting will remain open until February 18, 2016 at 11:59pm CST.
