APFA National Officer Election Run-off Ballots to be Mailed January 19
Recently, the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Allied Pilots Association (APA) reached a potentially landmark settlement which has led APFA to modify its balloting procedures. For more information on the changes, click here. Below is a helpful guide for members ahead of the coming National Officer run-off election:
New Access Code
Each APFA member will be mailed a new “access code.” The activation code and PIN you may have received in a past election no longer are valid. A new access code will be issued every time there is an election.
No Changing of Votes
Make sure you have all of the information you need before you vote. Double-check the names of the candidates you have chosen to ensure no mistakes are made on your ballot. ONCE YOU CAST YOUR BALLOT, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE YOUR VOTE.
If you do not receive the ballot packet that APFA mailed to you, or if you received the packet but have misplaced your access code, please contact the National Ballot Committee (NBC) at email@example.com or (817) 540-0108 ext. 8311. Please be aware that if the electronic balloting system shows that your access code was already used to cast a vote, no duplicate will be issued.
Eligibility to Vote
In order to be eligible to vote, you must be a member in good standing. If you are not yet an APFA member and would like to vote in the National Officer run-off election, you must join by 5:00 PM CT Tuesday, February 16, 2016. To join APFA, click here.
In order to be eligible to vote, you must be in good standing – not more than sixty (60) days in dues arrears. You must be in good standing no later than 5:00 PM CT Tuesday, February 16, 2016.
As in the past, the NBC will mail ballot packets, now including access codes, to all APFA members. The balloting system will not allow members in bad standing to log in. Instead, a message will appear (or in a recording if you are voting by telephone) instructing you to contact the Election Administrator/NBC. You can reach the NBC at firstname.lastname@example.org or (817) 540-0108 ext. 8311.
If you are ineligible because you are in dues arrears, you can become a member in good standing by contacting the APFA Dues Department at email@example.com or (817) 540-0108 ext. 8151. You can pay over the telephone by credit card, send in a check or pay in person at APFA Headquarters. A credit card authorization or check must be received by APFA no later than 5:00 PM CT Tuesday, February 16, 2016. If you are unsure of your dues status, contact the Dues Department as soon as possible in order to become voting-eligible before the deadline!
There will be an election for President, Secretary and Treasurer:
Ballots for the National Officer Run-Off election will be mailed on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 and votes must be cast by Thursday, February 18, 2016.
