AFE forms committees to assist and advise on various matters. For example, we had a Bylaws Committee to assist with the Bylaws update and a 25th Anniversary Committee to assist with the massive work of organizing for the members who came to Manila when the AGM was held here, and we have three standing committees: one for insurance, one for pension, and one for publications.
The Insurance Committee currently comprises Jill Gale de Villa (head), Ted Breckner, Julia Holz, Albertine Santi, Hans-Juergen Springer, and Clay Wescott.
The Publications Committee currently comprises Jill Gale de Villa (head), Steve Banta, Julia Holz, Anna Juico, Wickie Mercado, David Parker, and Hans-Juergen Springer.
Individuals provide other assistance that is essential, valuable, and much valued. For example, Cesar Juan assists with preparing mailing and other work; during the last election, Bruce Purdue was returning officer and Julia Holz was scrutineer; and during the coming election, Robert Wihtol is returning officer and David Parker is scrutineer.
As AFE's membership and duties expand, the need for assistance also increases.
