Applications 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 Dec. 8, 2017.
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. The slate is assembled based on certain needs or areas of expertise that may be needed on the new board.
Member voting takes place via the AEA website in December, and the winners of the election will be notified in early 2018.
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.
