Nominations are sought from the AAA membership annually via a
Call for Nominations from the Board of Directors. Once
nominations close, the AAA Nominations Committee, which is a standing
committee of the AAA puts forth two names for
pre-determined Board Director positions for the slate from the
submitted qualified candidate pool. Council puts forth two names
for one pre-determined Board Director position for the slate
from the submitted qualified candidate pool. Student Members, in
accordance with the Association Bylaws, may not hold an elected
or appointed office.
The slate shall be published approximately ninety (90) days prior
to the beginning of the election. Additional nominations may be
made by a petition signed by not less than one hundred (100)
members of the Association submitted to the Chief Executive
Officer at least forty-five (45) days prior to the beginning of
the election. Persons so nominated must previously have agreed
to serve if elected.
The membership of the Association shall be notified prior to the
election of the nominations made by petition. Final selections
among the candidates on the slate will be determined by a vote
of the membership in spring. The election shall take place by
mail, facsimile, or electronic vote of the members. New Board
members take office on Wednesday of the Annual Meeting.
