Board of Director Responsibilities

The Board of Directors is the overseeing body of AAEM, manages AAEM’s affairs, and performs all acts that are necessary to fulfill AAEM’s mission and as required or permitted by the Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws. Essential duties include:

  • Exploring opportunities while being careful with resources

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. YPS members will be eligible to vote for the YPS Director position. Full Voting and Emeritus members will be eligible to vote for all other board positions.

Elections are held concurrent with the AAEM Scientific Assembly each year. 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.

If you have any questions regarding the election process, please call 800-884-2236 or email us.
