Show us your 2020 Vision! Let’s Rock the 2019 AEA Vote! by Sheila B Robinson

Hello AEA members! Sheila B Robinson, aea365’s Lead Curator and sometimes Saturday contributor with an important message about the AEA elections. The  ballot is now open for our 2020 President-elect and Members-at-Large of AEA’s Board of Directors.

Unfortunately, AEA member voting has been historically low. Let’s do better this year!

Hot Tip: Don’t recognize some of the names? Get to know your candidates and cast your vote! Check out candidate bios here so you can familiarize yourself with their backgrounds and their visions for AEA. These candidates are accomplished leaders not only in AEA but in their own fields as well. Do your due diligence and give them each a few minutes of your time to learn about what they have to offer our association. They’ve worked  hard to get themselves on the ballot through a rigorous nomination process.

Many of us consider AEA to be our professional home and leadership is important to who we are as an association and what we have the potential to become.
