Electing the Council Class of 2026

Members will be supported in electronic voting by proxy for the upcoming Council election. The coronavirus pandemic has forever changed the way that learned societies gather and conduct important business, and in 2022 the Council amended the Society’s by laws to ensure that members could easily cast votes in the Council election without having to attend the meeting in New York. In 2020 and 2021 the Society used a polling function (in addition to proxy voting option) for the election, but will not continue this practice going forward to encourage and support the greatest possible participation in the Society’s elections by members.
