LEC Officer/Council Representative(2 positions) Nomination and Election Schedule
In accordance with Article VIII of the Constitution & Bylaws, all Local Councils in Election Category I must nominate and elect officers for the term beginning July 1, 2014 and ending June 30, 2017 (three year term). Article IX of the Constitution & Bylaws and Union Voting Procedures (Section IX of the Policy Manual) shall govern nominations and elections.
All active members, regardless of dues standing, with good addresses will be mailed the voting instructions and an activation code for both the nomination and election process. In addition, apprentice members who will be off probation on or before the count date will receive a ballot packet.
Attached you will find the nomination and election schedule for Category II. For the domestic Councils the process will commence in January 2014 and finish before the Annual Board of Directors meeting in April 2014.
For many of you we are introducing a new ballot company, Votenet Solutions. This company provides AFA with a high level of security and efficiency at a much lower cost.
NEW for everyone is the electronic nomination process. Members will receive a notice for nominations along with a 16-digit activation code. This code will allow the member to create a login for that ballot. Once the member is in the ballot they can search for their candidates by name (first or last) or AFA ID number.
New activation codes are issued for each nomination, election, and contract ratification ballot.
Step-by-step instructions, for both the nomination and election process, can be found on the AFA-CWA Election website www.afacwa-elections.org along with the Category II Election schedule, AFA-CWA Election Handbook, and Commitment to Serve form.
