The American Association of Endodontists proudly announces the district director candidates for terms beginning in 2021. Terms are three years in length, unless noted otherwise. Members will approve the nominees by casting their votes at the General Assembly in Atlanta on April 23, 2021.

The AAE Board of Directors is responsible for the AAE’s policy, strategic, and governance matters. The Board includes two representatives from each of the seven districts. Each year, the AAE district caucus nominating committees elect nominees to fill upcoming vacancies on the Board. In addition to the directors, the Board is comprised of six officers, the executive director, the Journal of Endodontics editor and the AAE Foundation president.

Following is the slate of nominees that will be voted on at the 2021 General Assembly:

Additional nominations for all district director positions are welcome and may be made in writing to the District Caucus Nominating Committee chairs.
