Dear Flight Attendants,
In just a couple of weeks on April 1, 2013, Alaska Airlines will open a new Flight Attendant base in San Diego. The Master Executive Council (MEC) would like to give you an idea of when and how San Diego will become its own AFA council.
Once San Diego has a minimum of 100 active members in good standing, the MEC will petition the AFA Executive Board of Directors to become its own council. Working in conjunction with the MEC’s recommendations, the AFA International officers will then appoint temporary local officers in San Diego until an election can be held for permanent positions. We are hopeful that the election will take place by the end of this year.
In the interim AFA Council 18 Los Angeles will support the San Diego base. If you are a San Diego-based Flight Attendant and need any AFA assistance or have any interest to volunteer for an AFA committee, please contact LAX LEC President Sandra Morrow (firstname.lastname@example.org, 951-532-3880) or LAX VP Kelly Johnson (email@example.com, 310-612-2259)
As time goes on we will update you with all relative information.
Your MEC – Jeffrey Peterson, Terry Taylor, Yvette Gesch, Melanie Buker, Laura Masserant, Cathy Gwynn and Sandra Morrow
