Reminder: Nomination period open for 2018 AMO election, AMO members are advised to confirm mailing addresses with Member Services

As a reminder regarding the 2018 American Maritime Officers election, under the amendment to Article XI, Section 3(g) of the AMO National Constitution adopted in February, the balloting period is lengthened at the front end so the union can meet the required installation of elected officers on January 1, 2019. As a result, the entire election timetable will advance by 30 days.

The period during which candidates for office can file nominations opened with the commencement of the May membership meeting at AMO National Headquarters on May 7. The nomination period will close with the commencement of the June membership meeting at 1 p.m. EDT on June 4 at AMO National Headquarters.

Ballots for the 2018 AMO election will be mailed on August 1, rather than September 1, adding one month to the balloting period.

All AMO members are urged to confirm their current mailing addresses with headquarters, or to provide alternative addresses if they would prefer that their ballots be mailed elsewhere, as soon as possible. To verify and/or update your mailing address on file with the union, please contact AMO Member Services by phone at 800-362-0513 ext. 1050 or via .
