AAA Members, It Is Time To Cast Your Vote

Hello AAA  Members,

It is time to vote and I think you are going to like the new, improved, streamlined on-line voting system.  The candidates and their engaging/quixotic photos and their erudite/informative platform statements, and in some cases changes to bylaws will be available to you, in a direct link from the AAA website.  Everything you need will open from the main page, or you can login directly through AnthroGateway and once you have selected AAA candidates through that ballot, you will go on to the section candidates on those ballots (for those you belong to) where you will be asked to vote also for bylaw changes and in one case a resolution.

As you know, because we have told you every year, it is perplexing that so few members vote (about 17% over the years).  Even if you don’t know any of the candidates (why should you? We are 11,000-plus members), you can read their statements and make a judgment about the commitment and talent that they will bring to AAA leadership.

Please cast your votes if only so that you can marvel at the new system in all its ease and esthetic qualities.  We have Kim Baker, Lisa Myers to thank for these modernizations and as always, if you have any questions or issues with voting, please contact Kim.  Any fresh ideas or feedback about the nominations process can be directed to me.

So get started by clicking here.

AAA Secretary

  1. I don’t see how you can vote for anyone on this page, you can just see the nomination process

  2. Thanks for your comment, Betsy. To place your vote, after logging into AnthroGateway, clicking on the Vote Now button, and selecting the election by clicking on the blue start arrow; you’ll need to check the small box to the left of the candidate’s photo by clicking on it. After checking the desired boxes, go all the way to the bottom and click on the orange next arrow to cast your vote. Contact Kim if that doesn’t work on your screen: kbaker (at) aaanet.org or call 703.528.1902

  3. There is no blue start arrow on my AnthroGateway page. I get taken to a page that says “requires login,” but my login information is already listed.

  4. Thanks for your comment, Fuji – sorry you are encountering difficulties. I have forwarded on your comment and e-mail address to Kim so that she can check into the issue and further help you.
