Like Special Hotline - National Ballot Committee Announces Willingness to Serves for Base Representatives on Facebook share on Twitter

APFA’s National Ballot Committee (NBC) is conducting elections for the positions of Base President, Vice President, and Operation Council Representatives/Base Council Representative (OCR/BCR) at all LAA and LUS Bases.

LAA Bases
The terms for the newly-elected representatives at DCA-AA, RDU-I, SFO and STL will be from April 1, 2015-March 31, 2017. The terms for the newly-elected representatives at BOS, BOS-I, DFW, IDF, JFK, LAX, LAX-I, LGA, MIA, IMA, ORD and IOR will begin on April 1, 2015, but will end when the company combines Domestic and International Operations at the adjacent bases. A separate election will be conducted for the combined bases.

LUS Bases
Elections are being held simultaneously for Interim base representatives for the remainder of the term ending on March 31, 2015, and for the regular term from April 1, 2015-March 31, 2017. The Interim positions must be filled so that the LUS bases will have officers elected by their APFA bases who can vote to elect an Ad Hoc Member of the APFA Executive Committee at the Annual Convention that will be held in March. (Base Presidents/Vice Presidents also must be elected in order to vote on any removal of an Ad Hoc Member.)

On November 10, 2014, the NBC notified the membership that it was accepting Willingness-to-Serves (self-nomination or nomination by another member) for all of these positions. On December 10, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. CT, the National Ballot Committee retrieved from the post office the Willingness-to-Serves submitted for all base positions. If only one candidate submitted a Willingness-to-Serve for a Base President or Base Vice President position, the candidate is deemed duly elected to the position. If the number of Willingness-to-Serves for OCR/BCR positions at a base is lower than the number of OCRs/BCRs to which the base is entitled all of the candidates are deemed duly elected. The following is the list of the candidates for positions at each base:

Bases with an “*” indicate there will be an election. If there is no asterisk, the candidates are duly elected.
