2021 Arms Control Association Board of Directors Election



Dear Member of the Association,

In a "normal" year, we would be reaching out about our in-person Annual Meeting, but it has certainly not been a normal year and we are all still struggling to cope with the devastating coronavirus pandemic.

Our 2021 Annual Meeting, which will be held this coming October, will be conducted online.

We are currently planning to host a hybrid, in-person and online, event in early 2022 where we will celebrate 50 years of Arms Control Association accomplishments and rededicate ourselves to the work that still lies ahead. We look forward to seeing many of you then.

Board of Directors Election: Please Vote!

In the meantime, all members are invited to vote by mail on the proposed slate of candidates for the 2021-2023 Class of Board of Directors Members. We have four current Board members who have agreed to continue to serve on the Board if approved by the membership.

Please see below the biographies of this year's candidates and the ballot. Cast your vote by June 30, 2021. Please note that if you also vote by returning the ballot you have received by postal mail, your vote will only be counted once.

If you have any questions about this year's board election, please contact Kathy Crandall Robinson, Chief Operating Officer, at 202-463-8270.
