Below is an excerpt:
AAA has been in discussions for some time now regarding a possible incorporation of the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) as an AAA section. This is a terrific opportunity for both associations, and we have worked hard to make it possible. The SEA has already voted in favour; in order to complete the process our own membership must also vote by the end of this calendar year. Below you will find detailed information about the process, about the SEA, and about what a merger implies for the AAA, as well as a link to the ballot itself. The Executive Board is in favour, and we hope you will also share our view that this would be a positive step for us to take.
To access the ballot and vote,you can login through the Account/Member Profile LOGIN area at the top of the page of the AAA website (www.aaanet.org). You can access theAAA Siteusing your favorite browser. Once you login,make sure you are on the My Information Page, once there,you will see a VOTE NOW button. Click on it and you will be taken to the ballot where you can cast your vote.
