Instructions for Willingness-to-Serve (WTS)
Any active member in good standing may nominate themselves or another member.

The Willingness-To-Serve (WTS) form is now Electronic. APFA will not accept paper Willingness-To-Serves. The only acceptable form is the electronic form found on the APFA website. There is a signature line at the end of the form that you will need to sign electronically.  There are instructions on how to sign the form on the WTS.  Once you have completed the form, you will click the submit button. You will receive a notice that your WTS has been submitted and a copy sent to your email address you provided along with an Entry ID#.  You need only submit your WTS one (1) time, but if you submit more than (1), for any reason, only the last submission received will be used.

Each candidate’s information will be reprinted with a consistent format, and no graphics will be included.  All candidate’s information is optional, including personal statements and references. There will be no corrections made to spelling, punctuation, grammar, capitalization, intent or content. If limitations are exceeded, personal statements will be cut off at the limit and biographical information will be brought into compliance by deleting the oldest items. You will not be provided an opportunity to make revisions to the candidate booklets provided to the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee.

If you are nominating someone, we ask that you fill out any/all sections of the WTS including references, personal statements and biographical information as all of this will be included in the electronic candidate booklet. The individual you are nominating will not have the opportunity to fill these sections out after the WTS is received.

It is your responsibility to inform references that their names will appear on the Willingness-to-Serve that is sent to all members of the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee.

In Solidarity,

Adam Brooks
