AAEM Board of Directors Election

Elections opening February 7, 2023

AAEM’s Board of Directors are nominated and elected by AAEM members and for AAEM members. They are the overseeing body of AAEM and ensure that, together, we fulfill our mission.

  • Democratic Principles: We believe the democratic principles that guide us are one of AAEM's greatest strengths.
  • What Sets Us Apart: Our election procedures are truly what make AAEM unique among professional medical associations.
  • Any Full Voting Member: In AAEM, any individual Full Voting or Emeritus member can be nominated and elected to the board of directors. Any YPS member can be nominated and elected to the YPS Director position. (Learn more about AAEM Membership and YPS Membership.)

What you will learn over the course of your term is a lifelong investment in your future ability to function as a clear-headed change agent in the house of medicine.

Nominations have now closed.

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.
