Nominations & Elections

 

The Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC) and the 2016 Board of Directors are pleased to announce the 2017 AFA Leadership Election Slate.
 

This slate is the product of weeks of diligent work by members of the NEC. The following is a brief outline of the process resulting in the 2017 AFA Leadership Election Slate:

  • Following the acceptance of nominations, each candidate’s application was individually reviewed and scored by every NEC member, using a framework of guiding questions and a scoring rubric.
  • NEC members deliberated and selected candidates for further review during a conference call.
  • Candidates were notified of their status.
  • Phone interviews were scheduled (where applicable). Groups of three NEC members conducted phone interviews with finalists. Each phone interview was recorded and made available to individual NEC members for their review. Phone interviews were individually reviewed and scored by every NEC member, using a framework of guiding questions and a scoring rubric.
  • NEC members deliberated and selected candidates to be slated during a conference call.
  • Candidates were notified of their status.
  • Slate is announced to the membership.

The 2017 AFA Leadership Election Slate includes:

  • President
  • Board of Directors
  • Nominations & Elections Committee

Along with the election ballot, the Board of Directors has proposed several housekeeping amendments to the current AFA Bylaws. The revisions outlined do not substantively change the Association’s Bylaws. Instead, they are intended to ensure consistency between the provisions of the Association’s governing documents, as well as to remove duplicative sections. See below for an overview and the proposed Bylaws:

The ballot will be sent electronically to eligible voting members on Monday, August 22, 2016. To view the slate, please click here.

Please note that in order to be eligible to vote, membership must have been renewed by Monday, August 15, 2016. If you have any questions about the nomination and elections process, please contact Jeremiah Shinn. If you have questions about the ballot or the voting process, please contact Joslyn McGriff.
