What is the MEC?
What Is the Master Executive Council?
All Local Executive Councils within an airline form the Master Executive Council (MEC). The MEC is responsible for coordinating the activities of AFA across an entire airline. Each LEC President sits on the MEC as the voting member for the members of the Local Council that they represent.
The LEC Presidents elect three officers to lead the MEC: a President, Vice President, and Secretary-Treasurer. These MEC Officers serve a three year term when elected. They do not carry a vote on the MEC with the exception of the MEC President, who votes only to break a tie.
The Hawaiian Airlines MEC is in AFA election category II. Our MEC Officers took office on July 1, 2014 and are serving a three-year term that runs through June 30, 2017.
