Elections of AAUP officers are conducted every four years and elections of Council members every two years, for staggered four-year terms. These elections for national positions are held in even-numbered years at the AAUP’s Biennial Meeting. Chapters elect their own delegates to represent them in the Biennial Meeting vote. Chapters with fewer than 250 members have the option of joining with other chapters in their state to create a section to elect a delegate or delegates to represent the combined membership at the meeting.
