A message from AES President Agnieszka Roginska
Dear Student Members:
I hope this message finds you safe and healthy wherever you are in the world.
The unprecedented nature of 2020, which not only forced our European Convention in May to be virtual but our US Convention this October as well, has made it impossible to hold Student Delegate Assembly Officer elections as we normally would at this time of the year. Our SDA election process relies heavily on the in-person nature of conventions, to allow prospective Officers to make their case during the SDA sessions for why they should be elected. We believe it simply is not a process that should be conducted virtually in fairness to everyone involved.
In light of that development, Alex Dempsey and Hannah Gallop have agreed to remain on the SDA for another year. We are truly grateful for their commitment to AES and the SDA.
It is very hard to say exactly what 2021 will hold. As plans come together for the events that will be permitted to take place next year, we will keep you up-to-date on SDA elections and activities.
Wishing you good health until we meet again,
