APFA National Officer Elections - LAA/LUS
The APFA National Ballot Committee (NBC) would like to inform all Flight Attendants about the upcoming National Officers Election and the process by which they are elected.
Ballots, including the candidate information booklet, will be mailed to the membership on December 10, 2015 and all votes must be cast by January 9, 2016 at 10:00am CT.
The APFA Constitution Article VI, Sections 5.H.1 and 2 explain that "if no candidate receives a majority [50% + 1] of valid votes cast" for a National Officer position, there will be a runoff election between the two (2) candidates who received the highest number of valid votes cast for that office. Ballots for any runoff election would be mailed on January 19, 2016 and the runoff election ballot count would be on February 18, 2016. If there is a runoff election for National President, the NBC, in conjunction with an appointed moderator, will conduct a Presidential debate between the two (2) candidates. The debate will be held at APFA headquarters and is a closed debate, but will be taped and made available for membership viewing no later than January 17, 2016.
Remember, your vote counts!
