Pursuant to Article III, Section 4, J, (1) of the APFA Constitution, Notifications of Willingness-to-Serve are now being accepted for AD HOC MEMBER OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE PLACE #5 for the three-year term of office beginning April 1, 2021.
This election is open to all active members in good standing as defined in Article II, Section 4.B. of the APFA Constitution. The Executive Committee Ad Hoc Member Place #5 will be elected at the APFA Annual Convention by the Base Presidents (or the Vice President in the absence of the Base President) who have been elected or duly elected as Delegates to the Convention pursuant to Article 1, Section 7. C. of the APFA Constitution. When a candidate receives two-thirds (2/3) of the valid votes cast, that individual will be deemed elected to that Ad Hoc Member Place.
Refer to Article III, Section 4 of the APFA Constitution for details regarding the jurisdiction and duties of members of the Executive Committee.
Willingness-to-Serve Notifications must be electronically submitted by the first day of the Annual Convention. The date for the Convention is yet to be determined. Once a date has been set, a hotline will go out notifying the membership. All Willingness-to-Serve Notifications that have been returned to the APFA will be distributed to the Board of Directors and the Executive Committee when the Convention is first called to order. No other Willingness-to-Serve will be accepted by the APFA after the Convention is called to order.
