Vote for the Future of Your Institute—Polls Open!
Proposed Governance Changes and Slate of BOD Candidates on Ballot
As a voting AIAA Member, you have the opportunity to be a vital part of shaping your Institute’s future. For 2016, important proposed governance changes and an outstanding slate of Board of Directors candidates are included on the ballot.
Many of you have heard about the proposed, amended Constitution up for a vote this election cycle during your TC meeting over the past year. Members of the Board of Directors, Governance Working Group (GWG), and Headquarters Staff visited scores of TCs during forums to explain the reasons why the changes are necessary and what is at stake in this vote.
But if you weren’t able to attend a meeting or hear about the proposed governance changes, you can visit http://www.aiaa.org/governance. This webpage is a comprehensive resource for members to educate themselves about the proposed changes. It provides a history and overview of the two-year governance project, compares the current and proposed constitutions, answers frequently asked questions, and includes links to all the information that has been published on the proposed governance changes to date.
Another opportunity to learn about what’s on the ballot is the complete Election Guide, which has probably already arrived in your email box. It’s available at www.aiaa.org/vote if you haven’t receive it yet. We encourage you to review this material, and cast your vote.
To request a paper ballot, contact Survey & Ballot Systems at 952.974.2339 or email@example.com (Monday–Friday, 0800–1700 hrs CDT). All other questions, contact AIAA Member Services at 703.264.7500, or (toll-free, U.S. only) 800.639.2422.
