    Hi Michael,

    The AMA provides every candidate for office an opportunity to send emails to AMA members who have selected to receive emails from the AMA. Regardless as to what AMA media the candidate chooses to distribute campaign ads, if he or she are officers of the AMA, they

    must use their own funds.

    The AMA does not release its membership database listings to anyone, so any time a person seeks to communicate with AMA members, the emails will be coming from and it does not represent an AMA endorsement of the candidate. This will also be the same for ads published in Model Aviation magazine by candidates. We have always provided this to candidates whether they are current officers or seeking office.

    Not sure if this is the right thread, but I'm wondering about the recent email that just came out from AMA. It's subject "Elect Lawrence Tougas for AMA Executive Vice President". The sender is "".

    I'm curious because it looks like an official recommendatoin from AMA that we vote for Mr. Tougas. Only when you reach the end of the email do you see "This email was paid for by Lawrence Tougas. Statements reflect the opinion of the candidate and do not necessarily represent the official position of the Academy of Model Aeronautics."

    It just strikes me as odd that such an email would come from AMA's official email account, and not from an email of Mr. Tougas' personally.
