Due to the recent election of the Alternate AMFA–SWA Aviation Safety Action Program (ASAP) Event Review Committee (ERC) Representative to the Primary position, AMFA National is conducting an election to fill the vacated Alternate position for the remainder of the term.
The Primary AMFA-SWA ASAP Representative serves as the SWA membership’s representative on the ASAP ERC and reports to the National Safety & Standards Director, or his designee. The Primary position is anticipated to be a full-time assignment based at the SWA Maintenance Facility in Dallas, Texas. The Alternate Representative will serve in the event the Primary is unavailable, and it is anticipated to be part-time. The term of service for the Alternate position will commence on the first day of the month following certification of the election, and will expire at 11:59 PM ET, June 30, 2019, or upon termination of the program, whichever occurs first.
Votes for this election will be cast using the TrueBallot Inc., WebVote® and TeleVote® systems. All active AMFA members in good standing employed by Southwest Airlines are eligible to vote in this election. Note: Any member whose membership dues, fees, and/or assessment obligations have not been reconciled is a member in bad standing and, therefore, is ineligible to vote.
The election notice and voting instructions will be mailed to eligible voters at the address on file with AMFA National on December 12, 2017. Any eligible member who has not received voting instructions in the mail by December 21, 2017, or anyone having questions about the voting process, should contact the Administration Director at 720-744-6629.
The voting period for this election will begin at 3PM ET on December 12, 2017, and it will conclude at 10AM ET on January 9, 2018.
