Applications are now available for the 2012 AEA board of directors election. To be considered for a position on the slate of nominees, AEA members must submit an application to the President of the AEA. The applications are then reviewed by the Trusteeship Committee, who 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 mid-January.
Board of directors voting will take place via the AEA website beginning in mid-January. Winners of the election will be notified in mid-February.
A director’s term is for three years, and directors are expected to attend the AEA International Convention (where the annual spring board meeting is convened), as well as the annual fall board meeting held at the AEA international headquarters offices in Lee’s Summit, Mo. Throughout the year, directors may be asked to volunteer time to serve on committees or complete special projects.AEA BYLAWS
