The American Academy of Sleep Medicine invites members to participate in the 2021 – 2022 AASM leadership election. Online voting is open through Monday, March 22, 2021.

In fall 2020, the AASM announced a call for nominations for vacancies on the Board of Directors and the Nominating Committee. We received a strong response from a host of highly qualified members who share a passion for the sleep field. The Nominating Committee thoroughly assessed the applicants, taking into consideration their history of AASM service, leadership experience, vision for the AASM, and unique expertise. Other factors that can enhance the diversity of the Board of Directors — including the applicants’ demographic, geographic and professional characteristics — were also considered.

The Nominating Committee recommended a slate of candidates, which was approved by the Board of Directors. As required by the AASM Bylaws, the nominees are now presented to the voting members for an election. Biographical information summarizing the qualifications and professional background of each candidate is available on the Leadership Election webpage.

An email with voting instructions was sent on Friday, March 5, 2021, to all eligible voting members (Regular, Fellow, Emeritus, and Sleep Medicine Trainee members). If you are an eligible voting member and do not receive an email ballot, please contact Christen Whittington at cwhittington@aasm.org.

Thank you for your participation!
