REMINDER: AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL ASSOCIATION ELECTIONS ARE UNDERWAY.
Voting is currently underway to elect new Eastern Division officers and a new member at large of the APA board of officers, as well as to consider four amendments to the association bylaws. If you haven’t already done so, please take a few minutes to review the information below and vote today.
Eastern Division Elections
This year, the Eastern Division will elect a vice president, a member at large of the executive committee, and two members of the nominating committee. Before voting, learn more about the candidates by reading their candidate bios.
Member at Large of the APA Board of Officers
Following an open nomination process and deliberations by the nominating committee, three candidates now stand for election for the position of member at large of the APA’s board of officers. The person elected will serve a three-year term beginning July 1, 2019.
At its meeting in November 2018, the APA board proposed four amendments to the association bylaws regarding 1) striking reference to membership list; 2) revising qualifications for regular membership; 3) voting by associate members; and 4) changing to a rolling membership. To be adopted, an amendment must be approved by a majority of those voting in each of the divisions. Members are encouraged to review the proposed bylaws amendments prior to voting.
Only full (regular and emeritus) members of the association affiliated with one of the three divisions are eligible to vote, and you must be signed in to the APA website to access the ballot link. Voting will remain open until the end of the month, closing on Friday, May 31.
Once submitted, your votes are final. You will not be able to return to your ballot and change your votes, so please consider your choices carefully before submitting.
