In the case of a new or smaller domiciles where the number of active members does not meet the constitutional threshold, multiple domiciles may be grouped together into one Local Council for purposes of representation.
Each AFA-CWA Local Council is led by an elected Local Executive Council (LEC). These Local Executive Council Officers consist of a President, Vice President, and Secretary. In larger Local Councils, additional officer positions called Council Representatives may also be elected to the LEC. The officers within each Local Council are nominated and elected directly by the membership to concurrent three year terms.
