Call for nominations for CFI Local 39000 officers and Executive Committee members

The CWA Trusteeship of CFI is scheduled to end in June, upon the election and training of new local officers and executive committee members. 
Nominations are now open for the following Titled Officer and Executive Committee positions:
Vice President
Region 1
Region 2
Region 3
Region 4
Freelance  (non-voting position)
The President, Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer shall also be elected as delegates to the CWA Convention (2019 and 2021) and TNG Sector Conference (2021). 

The terms of office will begin upon election and completion of officer training and run through December 31, 2021.
Candidates for Titled Officers may be nominated by any bargaining unit CFI member. Candidates for the regional seats may be nominated by any bargaining unit CFI member from that region. The Freelance position may be nominated by a freelance member.
Nominations must be received by April 15, 2019.  Please emails at  [email protected]

Candidates must be members in good standing, accept the nomination in writing and agree to participate in training to be scheduled by the CWA within 3 months of taking office.
In the event of a contested race for any position, a secret ballot election will be conducted.
To facilitate the end of the Trusteeship, the Temporary Administrator has modified the CFI bylaws to prevent recurrence of issues discovered during the trusteeship. The positions of Secretary and Treasurer have also been combined. A new election has been called because many of the previously elected Executive Committee members no longer qualify to hold office. Further, the law prohibits the CWA from unilaterally extending the terms of officers previously elected even though those members were not installed as officers during the trusteeship. Even if that were allowable, those terms would have ended in December 2019.
