American Academy of Emergency Medicine


LAST DAY - American Academy of Emergency Medicine 2012 Elections - Nomination Deadline: November 10, 2011 - Midnight CST

AAEM encourages candidates for election to the board of directors who have a previous record of service and commitment to the Academy.

The president, vice president, secretary-treasurer and three at-large positions on the AAEM board of directors are open as well as the Young Physicians Section (YPS) director position. Any Academy member may nominate a full voting or YPS member (for the YPS director position only) for the board. Self-nominations are allowed and encouraged. You must be a YPS member to be eligible to run for the YPS director position.

Elections for these positions will be held at AAEM’s 18th Annual Scientific Assembly, February 8-10, 2012, in San Diego, CA. Although balloting arrangements will be made for those unable to attend the Assembly, all members will be encouraged to hold their votes until the time of the meeting.

In order to nominate yourself or another full voting member for a board position, please complete the nomination form and forward to the AAEM office before midnight CST, on November 10, 2011.

All candidates must complete an attestation statement and a current disclosure form. The disclosure form is a section of AAEM's Code of Ethics.

These nomination and election procedures are what set AAEM apart from other professional medical associations. We believe the democratic principles that guide them are one of AAEM’s greatest strengths and are an integral part of what makes us the organization of specialists in emergency medicine. In AAEM, any individual, full voting or YPS member can be nominated and elected to the AAEM board of directors.
