Annual General Meeting -
The Annual General Meeting of the Icelandic Airline Pilots Association will be held at Grand Hótel, 28. February, 2019, from 20:00-23:00.
This year, FÍA members will elect a Vice-President and three Members of the Board. Those who wish to announce their candidacy must do so via email to FÍA's general manager at firstname.lastname@example.org before 7. February, 2019. The general manager gathers the candidacies on behalf of the board, and forwards them to the board and the electoral commission.
Given the current combination of FÍA's Board, the three seats now up for election can not go to Icelandair pilots, according to Article 16 of FÍA's Bylaws. If a new Vice-President were to be elected, who does not work for Icelandair, then one of the three seats on the Board can go to Icelandair.
Candidates will have the opportunity to introduce themselves in FÍA's newsletter, which will be published before the Annual General Meeting.
