More About AFA Committees
AFA has established a series of committees in order to represent Flight Attendant interests in different areas that are important to our profession and the quality of our working conditions. The volunteer Flight Attendants who serve on these committees provide an important level of representation to their flying partners and help to support the LEC Officers within the Local Council.
Each Local Committee is led by a Local Committee Chairperson and may also have Local Committee Members based on the workload and need of the committee. All of these volunteer positions are appointed by the LEC Officers. The Local Committee Chairperson works with the Master Executive Council (MEC) Chairperson of the committee, who is responsible for coordinating the activities of the committee across the entire airline.

A Special Request from EAP
The Employee Assistance Program (EAP)/Professional Standards Committee is in need of many volunteers for SFO. This position involves an application process. You may review the informational page on the AFA International website for more information and complete the online EAP representative application if interested. The selection of candidates for this position is in part the responsibility of the MEC EAP Chairperson. To expedite the process, the selection of volunteers may begin prior to the election and final candidates will be approved by the LEC Officers shortly after the election is complete. Training for new EAP volunteers will be held Aug 14-15 in SFO.
