Not voting has serious consequences

The deadline for the current AAA elections is May 31. Don’t put off voting, because that deadline is right after the Memorial Day holidays. 

There are four NAPA positions to vote on, including secretary, student member, and at-large members (2 positions). 

Another important position is for the AAA President-Elect. One of the candidates, medical and applied anthropologist Linda Whiteford, is a long-term faculty member at one of the outstanding applied programs (U South Florida) as well as a champion of applied and practicing anthropology. She is also a past SfAA President and has held numerous AAA positions. Linda should be a positive voice in promoting applied and practicing anthropology.

Regardless of your choices, be sure to vote soon, and urge your colleagues to vote as well!
