2017 Ballot for President-Elect, Council of Directors, and Board of Trustees 


Voting opened 6 February, and closes 31 March 2017, 23:59 hrs, EDT.

The 2017 election marks AIAA’s move into the new governance model as members will be electing the first President-Elect for the new AIAA Board of Trustees and the first class for the new Council of Directors. These are the volunteer leaders who will have the reins of the organization as we transition from the old model to the new. The Nominations Committee has done an excellent job in developing a slate of outstanding candidates. Your job now is to carefully review the candidate statements and select whom you believe is best suited to lead AIAA. 

Every member is strongly encouraged to use the electronic voting system below. AIAA will monitor the system to ensure a smooth voting process, and our independent third party vendor, Survey & Ballot Systems, will confirm that the web-based voting system is operating properly. All ballots must be submitted online through the website,, by 11:59 p.m. EDT, 31 March 2017.
