Dear Anchorage Flight Attendants,
Although most of you know me, I wanted to take some time this week to say Hi, and to let you know I am honored to be representing each of you as your Local Executive Council (LEC) President for Council 30. I am a fellow Anchorage-based Flight Attendant who has been with Alaska since 2005. My husband, Brian and I have been Anchorage residents since 2000. We have two daughters, Kinsley and Keeley. This past July we moved my mother up to Anchorage, so she now resides with us.
As you are aware, we are having a special election to elect a new LEC Vice President and LEC Secretary to serve out the remainder of this term with me. I am looking forward to working with our newly elected officers on behalf of the entire base . The polls will close August 6th, at 8:00 Alaska Time and the results will be published on that date. Please cast your votes by calling 1-888-488-7288 or online at http://www.afacwa-elections.org. It only takes a few minutes to vote and will ensure your voice is heard.
July began a 30-day transition period for my LEC President position. I have been meeting with other officers and receiving some training on the job responsibilities and duties of an LEC President. In addition, I have been reaching out to each of our Local Council 30 Committee Chairs and scheduling times to meet with all of them. We do have some committee positions open, as well as some Committee Chair positions coming open due to Flight Attendants transferring. If you have any interest in getting involved, please let me know. We would really appreciate the help!
Please continue to reach out with any questions, comments and feedback you have. We really need your input in order to best serve as your voice! Communication is key to making our base run as cohesively as possible. I look forward to working with each of you, both as a Flight Attendant and as LEC President!
