Elections 2013

Hafa Adai Flyers,

As I mentioned briefly in my last Blast – it is time to vote again!

When your current leaders took office, 18 months ago, it was in the middle of a three year term. That term ends this July. The AFA method of handling elections is lengthy, simple – and yet, a bit complicated!

The first round is NOMINATIONS. This is a three week period: January 10th – February 1st. All active, dues current, members are eligible to nominate, vote, or run for office.

This week, everyone should be receiving detailed instructions about nominations in the mail. If you do not receive this mailing, call: 1-800-424-2401, Press 1 then Ext 706.

The office is open 9:30AM – 5:30PM – Eastern Time. You can also leave a message.

The actual election process will start in March. That’s when you will receive another mailing, listing the candidates and detailing the voting procedures. The new term of office will begin July 1, 2013.
