That email will provide further instructions on how to update your membership information. If you prefer, you can email your first name, middle initial, last name, university, email, and complete home address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updates on the election process will be available under the election issues link on the top of the AAUP website, www.aaup.org. If you have any questions, please call Election Supervisor Christian Saenz at (202) 513-7320.
