The Association's 1976 elections will be held in September. All members will receive ballots in the general election for president-elect, members of the Board of Directors, and members of the Committee on Nominations. Each member who is enrolled in one of the 21 electorates corresponding to the AAAS sections will receive an electorate ballot for section chairman-elect, member-at-large of the section committee, and members of the electorate nominating committee. In addition, ten electorates will elect Council delegates this year. Members who have not yet enrolled in an electorate are invited to inform the Association of the electorate (section) of their choice. Biographies of all candidates are given below. Candidates for president-elect and for membership on the Board were invited to submit position statements of 500 words and 50 words, respectively. The statements of the candidates for president-elect immediately follow and the statements of the Board candidates who accepted the invitation follow their biographies. Additional names may be placed in nomination for any position by petition submitted to the Executive Officer not later than 27 July. Petitions nominating candidates for president-elect, members of the Board, or members of the Committee on Nominations must bear the signatures of at least 100 members of the Association. Petitions nominating candidates for any electorate or section position must bear the signatures of at least 50 members of the electorate. A petition to place an additional name in nomination for any position must be accompanied by the nominee's curriculum vitae and statement of acceptance of nomination. The terms of all officers, Council delegates, and committee members to be elected will begin on 1 January 1977.
