Policy and Procedure
Ultimately, AFA is governed by the AFA Constitution and Bylaws as adopted by the AFA Board of Directors. The MEC has adopted a policy and procedure manual to address matters of business that the AFA Constitution and Bylaws does not.

How the MEC/LEC Councils Operate
Master Executive Council
The AFA Master Executive Council (MEC) for Horizon Air is comprised of three Officers, MEC President, MEC Vice President and MEC Secretary Treasurer who are appointed by the Locally elected officers of the AFA Local Executive Councils (LEC) at Horizon Air. The MEC officers serve three year terms and can be removed from office by a vote of the Local Executive Presidents.
The MEC's main role is to be the spokesperson between the LEC's and management. In addition the MEC through its various committee's provides support and guidance to the LEC's local committees. It is the LEC committees that drive the work, product and tone of how the MEC Committee Chairs deal with management and help meet the LEC's needs.
When or if a disagreement arises between the LECs the MEC can provide a deciding vote on the issue.
The MEC also provides a voice for the LECs with the international AFA through the Master Executive Committee airline meetings that happen quarterly.
