The meeting coincided with the 7th EAA Chapter Leadership Academy where chapter leaders attend a two-day seminar on leadership training. Chapter representatives from across the USA and one Canadian attended. All expressed appreciation for the opportunity to learn about EAA and the role they individually could play in promoting the passion for aviation in their own chapters. Canadian Council members also participated in this seminar.
Current Canadian EAA membership stands at just over 5,100 with the highest numbers in Ontario followed by Quebec and Alberta. There are 12 registered chapters and four additional groups that have requested ‘Starter Kits.’ Chapters are located from Nanaimo on the West Coast to the Annapolis Valley in Nova Scotia.
You need 10 individuals to form a chapter. Contact EAA’s Chapter Office at www.EAAchapters.org for information.
