Nominations open for
AEA board of directors election
Nominations are now open for AEA members interested
in running for a position on the AEA board of directors.
To apply, your company must be an AEA member in good
standing, and you must complete an application form by
Jan. 5, 2016. Applications are available
online at www.aea.net/boardofdirectors.
To be considered for a position on
the slate of nominees, AEA members
must submit an application to the AEA president. The
applications are then reviewed by the AEA Trusteeship
Committee, which then assembles a final slate of nominees for a vote before the full membership. This slate is
assembled based on certain needs or areas of expertise that
may be needed on the new board. Nominees will be notified in early January.
Member voting begins via the AEA website in early
2016 and the winners of the election
will be notified soon thereafter.
A director's term is for three years,
and directors are expected to attend
the AEA International Convention &
Trade Show (where the annual spring board meeting is
convened), as well as the annual fall board meeting. During
the year, directors may be asked to volunteer time to serve
on committees or complete special projects. q
