AANR Election Season
In the May AANR Bulletin, you will get information about how to cast your AANR ballot. You will also have gotten information via email in the last few weeks. To be eligible to vote, you must have been an AANR member on March 15th of this year.
In the Northwest, there is only one contested contest. It is for President of AANR. There are also six ballot proposals to consider. With the information about how to vote, you will also receive the voter's guide. This guide will describe the candidates, as well as the ballot proposals. It is important information. If you still have questions, as your AANR trustee, I am available for questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two years ago, the Northwest had the largest turnout of all of the regions for the election, just over 10%. While that is in keeping with other membership organizations, we can do better. This year, let’s redouble our efforts and make a difference.
But, please take the time to vote. It will be as simple as logging into the voting site and pushing a few buttons. Easy to do. Worth the effort. Please do it now while you are thinking about it.

New to GoToMeeting? Get the app now and be ready when your first meeting starts:
There are two ways to use GOTOMeeting.
- The fullest way to participate is to use your computer, tablet or smartphone. To do this, visit
and follow the instructions. You should try this sometime during the week, to make sure you’re set. If you reach “Waiting for Karen Lahey”, you succeeded. Ignore any login or “start your free trial” buttons, because those only apply to the meeting organizer. This will also be easier the second time, because there will be some set up steps that are skipped. If you have any problems, you can email email@example.com
- The other way to participate is to use your phone and call +1 (646) 749-3117 with the Access Code: 872-794-229 . If you call in from your phone, you will be able to hear everything, but you won’t be able to see anyone else.
During the party, please mute when you are not talking. (Click the little microphone or mute your phone). That will help cut down on background noise.
