Results of the 2014 AAS Election

Tuesday, February 11, 2014 - 08:58

Voting in the AAS election of officers and councilors for terms beginning in 2014 closed on 31 January. Of the 7,124 members eligible to cast ballots, 1,016 members (14.3%) voted. If you’re in that group, thank you! If you’re not, we hope you’ll exercise your right to vote in future elections. Our officers and councilors help decide the Society's direction and goals. The best way to ensure that your voice is heard is to participate in Society elections.

Here are this year’s winners; all will take office in June at the 224th AAS meeting in Boston, except for the newly elected member of the Nominating Committee, whose term begins immediately:


  • Jack Burns


  • Nancy D. Morrison


  • Kelly Holley-Bockelmann

  • Stephen Unwin

Nominating Committee

  • Nicole S. van der Bliek

We are grateful to all the AAS members who agreed to stand for election, and we congratulate our new officers and councilors and look forward to benefiting from their wisdom and energy in the years ahead!
