INSTRUCTIONS FOR WILLINGNESS-TO-SERVE
The Willingness-To-Serve (WTS) form is now Electronic and can be found on the APFA website www.apfa.org. The National Ballot Committee will no longer 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#. It is important that you keep this ID# for your records. The National Ballot Committee will not be able to retrieve the WTS’s until the date and time specified, but will be able to see the Entry ID#’s. You need only submit your WTS one (1) time, but if you submit more than (1), for any reason, the NBC will only use the last one received. Candidates for Base officer, Base President or Base Vice President, may run for only one (1) Base officer position per election, that is either Base President or Base Vice President. Candidates for either Base President or Base Vice President may run simultaneously for an BRC position. If you wish to run for both Base officer (Base President / Vice President) and BCR simultaneously, please select accordingly on the form. 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 electronic candidate booklet.
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.
