The NAEA Board of Directors is elected by its members.
Help Decide the Future of Your Association—Exercise Your Right to Vote!
NAEA will choose National Vice Presidents-elect running in your region (you may only vote for one Vice President-elect candidate) and for the President-elect in the Special Election. Voting is conducted exclusively online for NAEA National Officer elections. Eligible voting members will receive an e-mail on December 1. A second reminder will be sent in early January. The deadline to vote is January 5, 2018. The e-mail will include:
- An online link to vote;
- Your NAEA ID number; and
- A unique password for your secure vote.
Please keep your e-mail, as the NAEA office will NOT have access to the secure passwords. Make sure your membership is current or you will not receive an e-mail to vote. Members in these categories, who are current at the time the ballot is sent, are eligible to vote: Active Professional, First Year Professional, Emeritus, Preservice, and Life Members.
