AAA Members, It Is Time To Cast Your Vote

Today’s guest post is by AAA Secretary, Debra Martin.

Greetings Members,

The on-line voting system we implemented last year worked really well and AAA staff has continued to make improvements so that it is super easy for you to see the candidates (along with their compelling photos), read their scintillating statements, and vote for the ones of your choice.  Follow the link from the main page, or you can log-in directly through AnthroGateway: https://avectra.aaanet.org/eweb/ 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 on any issues specific to your sections.

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 all 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  elections@aaanet.org.  Any fresh ideas or feedback about the nominations and voting process can be directed to me (debra.martin@unlv.edu).

So get started by clicking https://avectra.aaanet.org/eweb/

  1. Thanks to Debra Martin, Kim Baker, and Lisa Myers for organizing this and providing a very functional ballot. It looks great!

    In the time between candidacy deadlines and balloting, the AAA submitted a statement on Open Access legislation, followed by an Executive Board statement. Some members were concerned to know where current Executive Board candidates stood with regard to questions of Open Access, and several of those candidates have graciously taken the time to submit additional statements about these issues. Please see the Executive Board Candidate statements on Open Access for more.
