CEAL Election Voting Eligibility Window Now Closed

Dear Friends,
Eligibility to vote in CEAL elections is based on 1) Current Membership in AAS and 2) Payment of CEAL dues for the current year (click here for details).

As I announced recently, the CEAL 2017 election is set to begin on Monday February 13th at 12:01 AM PST. The cutoff date for voting eligibility was officially 1/31/2017. During the past week, we have accepted late applications for CEAL membership, to allow as many as possible to vote. However, the window for eligibility to vote in the 2017 election is now closed.

Thank you very much for your participation and interest in CEAL.
