2020 Election Notice

In accordance with the Article VIII of the AFA-CWA Constitution & Bylaws, all Councils in Category II must nominate and elect officers for the term beginning July 1, 2020 and ending June 30, 2023 (three year term). Local Council Officers to be elected will be LEC President, LEC Vice President, LEC Secretary and 2 (two) Council Representatives.

As an active member in good standing, you have the right to nominate candidates for office, to run for office and to cast a secret ballot.

Nominations and elections are governed by procedures outlined in the Association’s Constitution & Bylaws, Article VIII and the AFA Policy Manual.

In order to participate in the nomination and election process a Flight Attendant must be an
Active Member in Good Standing.

This means you must not be on a leave of absence, you must be a current member of the Association of Flight Attendants and your AFA account should be in good standing (no delinquent union dues).

You will receive the Voting Notice & Instructions along with a Voting Guide listing the candidates running for each office. This mailing will include a new personal 16-digit activation code, and similar to the Nomination process, it will allow you to access the voting system via phone or internet to obtain a username and password and cast your ballot. Due to account security requirements you are issued a new 16-digit activation code for each election. ** Once you cast your vote you may not revote in accordance with Department of Labor guidelines. 


As we get closer to the election opening date, further detailed instructions will be sent out to you.
