What is the Master Executive Council?
All Local Executive Councils within an airline form the Master Executive Council (MEC). The MEC is responsible for coordinating the activities of AFA across an entire airline. Each LEC President sits on the MEC as the voting member for the members of the Local Council that they represent.
The LEC Presidents elect three officers to lead the MEC: a President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer. These MEC Officers serve a three year term when elected. They do not carry a vote on the MEC with the exception of the MEC President, who votes only to break a tie.
The Air Wisconsin MEC is in AFA election category I. Specific election and term of office dates can be found on the MEC officer page.
How the MEC Operates
The MEC meets at least three times per year in person at various locations, in addition to regularly scheduled conference calls. These meetings are generally not open to the membership at large. If you have a question, concern, or item of business that you would like brought before the MEC, please contact your LEC President.
Policy and Procedure
Ultimately, AFA is governed by the AFA Constitution and Bylaws as adopted by the AFA Board of Directors. The MEC operates within the guidelines of the AFA – CWA Constitution and Bylaws.
