Your Vote, Your Society!

GSA is a member-based organization and its elected leaders help shape the future of the Society. Voting is a member benefit and an important duty of all GSA members. We hope you will take the opportunity to exercise this special privilege.

How do I vote?

Elections are held March 1 to March 31, 2018. Instructions on how to cast your ballot online are sent via e-mail.

Who votes?

All members of GSA who are in good standing are eligible to vote.

What positions do I vote for?

All GSA members in good standing are able to cast their vote online (or paper ballot if requested) for GSA Society-wide position(s) and their respective section. GSA ESPO members (student and transitional members) are eligible to vote for ESPO positions.

What do GSA officers do?

Many of them sit on the GSA Council, which is the supervising policy body of the Society. Some have oversight of the four professional sections within GSA as well as ESPO. They also are responsible for fulfilling charges set forth by the GSA president. Each person takes his or her office at the Annual Scientific Meeting.

GSA officers also serve as representatives for the Society; you may see them at conferences or other events, or even on Capitol Hill providing expert testimony or engaging in advocacy efforts. Section chairs additionally are responsible for overseeing the program content at the Annual Scientific Meeting.
