As of mid-day today, 2368 votes have been placed, which is 80.3% of all eligible to vote. Let’s move this into the 90’s! The vote is far too important to let someone else decide your future!
Your dues must be current in order to vote. If you believe your dues are in arrears, contact AFA Member Services at 1-800-424-2401 (Press 7). They are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm Easter Tim.
If you are current on your dues and have not received your ballot and instructions, please contact the AFA Ballot Helpline at 1-800-424-2401 (Press 1, then Ext 706).
Due to severe weather the AFA International office is closed but staff are working from home during business hours. Leave a message with the requested information and somebody will contact you in the morning.
If you have already voted and wish to change your vote, the last recorded vote is the one that counts. If you do not vote, it does not count one way or the other. All votes must be submitted by noon Pacific Time on Friday, February 14, 2014.
We anticipate results will be validated by early afternoon tomorrow and AFA will communicate the certified results as soon as possible.
Finally, our group is extremely passionate and emotions have been running very high in regards to the vote. Your Master Executive Council (MEC) and Negotiating Committee request that we all take a moment to reflect on our interactions with each other—particularly on social media. (Your leaders are certainly not excluded here.) This is a great opportunity for us all to step away from the keyboard for the evening, take a deep breath and begin focusing on moving forward with grace and kindness.
We thank you all for being so engaged and we’ll know the results soon!
