Volume 36, No. 5 -- May 2020
The AAEES Elections will again be totally electronic.
With this system, there will be every incentive to vote immediately rather than put it off and running the risk of never actually voting. So when you see an item in your inbox that says AAEES Election of Officers, please do us a favor and set aside a few minutes to take care of that ballot right away. The system we are using for the online election is myDirectVote so the email will be coming from directvote.net.
All eligible Board Certified Individuals and AAEES Members will receive an email with their log in credentials and instructions prior to the June 1 open date.
Taking care of this right away will guarantee that you get no more reminders. Or conversely, not responding will guarantee that you do get a reminder if you are too busy with other things to fill out the ballot right then.
Thanks for taking the time to cast your ballot.
