For every 10 adults eligible to vote, only about four cast a ballot in the 2010 and 2014 midterm elections. The U.S. has a voter engagement problem. This same trend carries over to professional membership associations - including to AACRAO.
To combat voter apathy and open the association governance decision up to a larger portion of the membership, AACRAO shifted to electronic voting in 2013. No longer do members have to attend the Annual Meeting in order to vote.
Those chosen to lead the association construct the strategic framework that positions the organization for continued success. Your vote influences the direction of the association which is why all institutional members are eligible and encouraged to vote for AACRAO Leadership.
The following positions are currently up for election:
