Voter Information

To be able to vote, each APFA member must be a member in good standing no later than five (5) days prior to the date the votes are counted (“balloting date”). The balloting date is January 26, 2024, therefore you must be in good standing by January 22, 2024. The Dues Department endeavors to run the monthly billing on the 15th of every month. That will update members' eligibility, therefore it is strongly advised you check your membership status and dues by logging into APFA.org on or after that date to confirm your eligibility.

A member will also be eligible to vote if on an official APFA payment plan that was executed at least thirty (30) days prior to the balloting date and at least one payment has been made. Which means you must be on the official plan by December 27, 2023, for the primary election. You can set up an official APFA payment plan by contacting the dues department at [email protected] or by calling 817-540-0108.

Instructions for Willingness-to-Serve (WTS)

Any active member in good standing may nominate themselves or another member. You must be a member in good standing at the closing deadline of this Willingness-to-Serve, if you are not a member in good standing at the closing deadline of the Willingness-to-Serve, your Willingness-to-Serve will be deemed ineligible.

The Willingness-To-Serve (WTS) form is Electronic. APFA will not accept paper Willingness-To-Serves. The only acceptable form is the electronic form found on the APFA website. There is an acknowledgment box and 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 notice that your Willingness-to-Serve has been submitted and a copy will be sent to the email address that you provided along with an Entry ID#. The NBC will also receive a confirmation e-mail with only the Entry ID, which may be used to verify that your Willingness-to-Serve has been received. You need only submit your Willingness-to-Serve one (1) time, but if you submit more than (1), for any reason, only the last submission received will be used.

NEW: You now can 'Save Progress & Continue Later'. This option allows you to return to your Willingness-to-Serve later to complete. Under the 'Save Progress & Continue Later', it will allow you to email yourself a link that will bring you back to your form to complete. The link is valid for 30 days or until the form is submitted. Once you submit the form the link will no longer be valid. The NBC and APFA personnel are unable to access any Willingness-to-Serve forms, including any drafts or completed forms until closing date and time.

To submit your form, complete ALL required fields and click Submit at the end. Saving your progress will NOT submit your form.

Each candidate’s information will be reprinted in a consistent format, and no graphics will be included. All candidate information is optional, including personal statements and references. There will be no corrections made to spelling, punctuation, grammar, capitalization, intent, or content. Per the APFA Policy Manual, Section 14.g.8.c, if limitations are exceeded, personal statements will be cut off at natural sentence break, and biographical information will be brought into compliance by cutting off line items where exceeded, and/or deleting the oldest items. The NBC will advise you if there is truncation due to limitations being exceeded. If you are notified that you have exceeded any limitations, you will not have an opportunity to make any revisions.

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 be published in the electronic candidate booklet.

References listed must be members in good standing at the time of the Willingness-to-Serve closing on December 7, 2023, at 1000 (CT).
