2018 AOC International Elections


Elections open September 1!

Election season is almost upon the AOC. The future of this organization lies in the capable hands of our members, and your participation is critical. Please exercise your right to vote for your AOC Board of Directors representatives. You can familiarize yourself with the candidates with the election guide below. This information describes the candidates’ backgrounds, leadership styles, and contributions to the AOC. The 2018 Nominating Committee carefully considered the impressive nominations it received before selecting this year’s candidates. The slate of candidates was subsequently approved by the AOC Board of Directors. We are grateful to all of those who participated in this process and applaud those willing to submit their names for consideration.

Thank you for your continued support of AOC. Let your voice be heard by casting your vote for the new leaders of your association! Elections open on September 1 and close on September 30.

2018 Online Voting Instructions

Beginning September 1, AOC members can visit crows.org, where they will see election information and a link to OpenWater, the independent vendor that will conduct the online election. You will receive an email with log in instructions shortly before the elections start. The website will direct you to your ballot, where you can make your selections. Your AOC dues must be current as of August 20 in order to vote. As with past AOC elections, your ballot is secret.

OpenWater will hold all completed ballots, tabulate them and send the results to the AOC when the election is complete. Once you have cast your online vote, OpenWater will send you an email confirming that they have received your completed ballot.

For those AOC members who cannot vote online, you can access a paper ballot in the election guide. Members may cut out the paper ballot, mark it – including your member number (available on the front label of your JED) and your name and contact information – and mail it back to the AOC. Paper ballots must be postmarked after September 1, 2018, and before September 30, 2018.
