Protest on Election of New NEC Members
Posted On: Sep 23, 2012

September 21, 2012

AMFA Members:

This past week, the National Officers met in Chicago for the Joint Advisory Council (JAC)

Meeting and the National Executive Council (NEC) Meeting where we had planned to prepare

for the transition of newly elected National Officers.

Per the AMFA Constitution, officers are to be sworn in on the first Monday in October of the

election year; however, the National Director has received eight (8) protests requesting an

investigation to verify that all facets of the election adhered to dictates of the AMFA

Constitution and the Labor Management Reporting Disclosure Act (LMRDA). Due to these

election protests there will be a delay in the swearing in of the newly elected National Officers,

and a re-run will be conducted if it is determined that an election protest is valid.

We understand that this development may cause some members to become concerned that the

installation of officers is being delayed; however, we would like to remind everyone that Article

VII, Section 10 of the AMFA Constitution provides our members the right to protest the election

of any officer. It is far more important that we demonstrate the integrity of our elections rather

than simply dismiss these protests in the interest of expediency.

We will keep the membership appraised once the NEC has made a determination on this matter.


Louie Key

National Director
