Results of the 2017 AAS Election

Voting in the AAS election of officers and councilors for terms beginning in 2017 closed on 1 February. Of the 7,162 members eligible to cast ballots, 1,430 members (20%) voted. If you were one of these voters, thank you! If 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.
