The AF General Assembly will be convened on April 25-26, 2016. In line with this, we shall be holding an election to fill eight (8) seats in our Board of Trustees. Members from the NCR, Visayas and Mindanao shall elect seven (7) trustees from the nationwide roster while Luzon-based members shall elect one additional trustee from the list of members based in Luzon (‚ÄúLuzon-based‚ÄĚ members does not include NCR-based members; NCR is considered a separate group).

Per our By-Laws, a member of the Board of Trustees will serve a 2-year term and may be re-elected twice. A trustee may, therefore, serve a maximum of three (3) consecutive terms (a total of 6 consecutive years) after which said board member will have to rest for at least one year before he/she may be eligible for election again. Based on this, outgoing board members have the following eligibility status:
