What Is a Member?
A Flight Attendant must be a member to cast a vote. If you are a non-member, you can make yourself active by completing a membership application and returning it to AFA Membership Services. Please contact AFA Membership Services for assistance at (800) 424-2401, option 7.
Pre-merger Alaska Airlines (pmAS) Flight Attendants must also ensure that all membership dues are current and up-to-date. If you have received an invoice from AFA Membership Service for missed payments, please contact AFA Membership Services to make payment arrangements. Dues payments can also be made online.
How Can I Check To See If I’m a Member?

New Hire Flight Attendants
Pre-merger Alaska Airlines (pmAS) Flight Attendants who have not been employed for 4 full calendar months as of 04/03/2018 are not eligible to vote and cannot make themselves eligible to vote, nor will they receive the voting instructions. However, if a new hire Flight Attendant has completed 4 full calendar months of employment on or before 04/03/2018 they are eligible to vote during the entire voting period.
Pre-merger Virgin America (pmVX) Flight Attendants do not have a first contract in place and need only complete a membership application to be eligible to vote regardless of date of hire.
Make Sure You Get Your Ballot—Update Your Address
If you’ve recently moved or have a new address, please submit an address update to AFA International using the change of address form at www.afacwa.org/coa. Please note that updating your address with the company does not automatically update your address with AFA; a separate change of address must be submitted using the link above.
AFA Membership Services will be uploading the roster into the ballot system on or about March 7. Until then, you may submit an address update via the AFA Membership Services change of address form. Ballots will be mailed on March 13 and will be sent to the address that was on file with AFA at the time the membership roster was uploaded.
You can find additional information on the merger TA voting page of the AFA Alaska website. If you have questions about membership status or voting eligibility, please contact AFA Membership Services at (800) 424-2401, option 7.
