Willingness to Serve for DCA-U and SFO – LAA/LUS
 

As stated earlier this week in an APFA National Ballot Committee (NBC) hotline, a Willingness-to-Serve (WTS) has been posted on the APFA website for Vice President of DCA-U and President and Vice President of SFO. The NBC has received questions as to why this WTS is being posted when there was a recent election for all base representatives. 

In the last round of base elections effective April 1, 2017, there was no WTS received for Vice President of DCA-U. In that situation, Section 14 of the APFA Policy Manual states that the elected or duly elected Base President may appoint a Vice President. Newly elected DCA-U Base President John Pennel appointed Lori Vitto Glattly as the interim DCA-U Vice President. Since there was no WTS received for DCA-U Vice President in the initial base election, an Early Term Election must be held to fill the Vice President position at DCA-U. 

There was also no WTS received for President or Vice President of SFO in the last round of base elections. In that situation, Section 14 of the APFA Policy Manual states that the Executive Committee (EC) shall appoint an active member in good standing as the President and then the President may appoint a Vice President. The EC appointed Jennifer Welpott as the interim SFO Base President, and she subsequently appointed Pauline PJ Toms as interim Vice President. Since there was no WTS received for SFO President and Vice President in the initial base election, an Early Term Election must be held to fill both the President and Vice President positions at SFO. 

This Early Term Election process at DCA-U and SFO begins with another Willingness-to-Serve which is posted on the APFA website and must be received by 10:00 AM CT on August 1, 2017.

If you have any further questions regarding this WTS, please feel free to contact the APFA National Ballot Committee at ballot@apfa.org or 817-540-0108 ext. 8311.
