2021 Virtual Meeting of the AFA-CWA Board of Directors

April 13, 2021




Board of Directors Member:

The Board of Directors Meeting will take place this year on 13-14 May 2021 and will be conducted virtually as a video conference. Enclosed are the advanced agenda items and other related information for the meeting.

Incorporated in this packet is the program of activities, committees and committee assignments, and a  numerical index of agenda items. We urge you to review the entire agenda and to familiarize  yourself with the issues.

It is important that you become well acquainted with the mechanics of the meeting. We have  scheduled sessions for New Delegate Orientation and Parliamentary Procedures Training, and we  encourage everyone to attend. Also, please take some time before the meeting to review certain parts  of the AFA-CWA Constitution and Bylaws (C&B). Article V identifies the constitutional parameters  and Appendix B describes parliamentary procedures. Unless otherwise provided for in the C&B, all  questions of parliamentary law and rules of order will be decided on under procedures contained in  “The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure,” which is mandated by Article I.N. of the C&B.  Jim Lochrie will be the parliamentarian at the Board meeting this year.

In the event you are unable to attend the meeting as a regular delegate, please complete the enclosed  form for “Representation at BOD Meetings,” and return it via email (kcreighan@afanet.org) at the  International Office as soon as possible. A completed form must be received by the Credentials  Committee prior to the meeting, in order for your Council to be represented.

For the duration of this Board meeting, the term “active member in good standing” in Article V.G.2.  of the C&B is defined as those members in good standing as of the close of business on Friday,  April 30, 2021. If you wish to verify the roll call determination of your Council, please do so before  the meeting. You are encouraged to review these numbers and take care of any discrepancies in  advance of the meeting. Bob Kenia will be available to discuss any inaccuracies.

We look forward to seeing on the screen on the first day of the meeting, Thursday, May 13.

In solidarity,

Kevin P. Creighan
International Secretary-Treasurer
