We had an excellent Annual Meeting last night via Zoom. Thank you to all who attended on a cold night!
It is a pleasure to welcome Michael Bergeson and Andy Brown to the Board of Directors of the MN Pilots Assn! As you were able to see from their bios they bring a wealth and breadth of aviation experience to our Board. Welcome to the Board!
It is bittersweet, at the same time, to see Jim Peterson and Michael Lawrence complete their terms on the Board.
Jim was one of the founding Board members, having served as Treasurer since inception. He was one of the Gang of Nine who were kind enough to believe in the need for an organization such as the Minnesota Pilots Assn, and they gave freely of their time, energy and expertise to get our organization airborne. As I would expect, Jim has kindly consented to remain very involved with our organization. He is a quality person and an effective leader.
Michael Lawrence has been an up and coming leader in aviation in Minnesota for many years. He has been active in aviation at the corporate level, first at the Anoka County-Blaine airport and more recently at Flying Cloud airport. He is a soft spoken leader who is innovative and effective, and he will be missed.
Bios for Michael Bergeson and Andy Brown will soon be up on our website in the "About" section. They are eager to serve and bring new energy and ideas to our organization.
