I emailed the AAST regarding the upcoming election, and asked if the slate of candidates would appear first on the website or in the A2Zzz. I also asked if there would be a write-in line on the ballots.

It usually goes out mid-march, and there is a 2 week voting window. I haven't seen the email yet either this year.

Reply from Chris is:


In March AAST members will receive a couple of messages with information about the election process and candidates. This information will be shared with members via A2Zzz, Member Update, AAST website, AAST Facebook Page and LinkedIn. There is an option to write in a candidate on the ballot.

I have not missed a AAST (APT) vote since 1991 and I didn't miss this one either!

Just a reminder that voting is going on right now.

To those of you who voted already, thanks for taking part in the process.

For those of you who voted for Brendan Duffy AKA Labman2 and/or LIA Deneau AKA Polysomprincess, Thanks for your support and belief in our goals to present you!

For those of you that have not voted, or know folks that have not voted, please consider doing so... and we would appreciate your support!

and

For the person that is telling others how to vote after this same person told his pals last year not to rejoin AAST .... how exactly does that work if they are no longer members (and cant vote) based on your past brilliant advice? :lol: :lol:

Thanks everyone!!

Stay safe out there!

Well anyone running for the Board that has not already been on the Board would have to be considered new blood.
I would urge everyone to read each candidate's statements and vote according to that. There seem to be several qualified candidates running. Each voter has to consider the merits, which may or may not include whether candidates post on a fine internet forum like binarysleep. In other words, don't disqualify a good candidate merely because he/she doesn't post on here; look at the whole picture.

Also, don't disqualify anyone if they do post here either.

Fan

They may be qualified, but I sure wish they WERE out here along with myself and LIA so I (and others) could get a feel for how they think and react to discussions. That is the problem... I do not hear or see them to really know much about them.

At least with being on these forums. folks have a sense as to who we are and that we care about what is happening EVEN WITHOUT an elected office position. Now, by being here, folks may decide they dont care for my views, and I lose votes also.... so... being out here, being myslef, speaking my nind does not always translate into additional votes, it may cost me some... but at least folks know I am available and have a "sense" of the person.

I am pretty active in the sleep world, and besides what I saw on the resume bio page for several of the other candidates, I really dont know too much about many of them at all. ie... whta type of folks they are.. besides the bio

I would LOVE for them to join us in some of the discussions to give a sense as to how the think about things going on...
