Greetings from Jeff Skiles
January 24, 2012 – Below is an introductory letter from Jeff Skiles, EAA's new Vice President of Chapters and Youth Education. Skiles will be sharing his thoughts and vision with you in upcoming ChapterGram editions.
Over the last year, EAA has conducted an extensive internal evaluation of where our organization is today, and where it should be streamlined to create the best value for our membership.
This process has led to changes across the organization, with chapters and Young Eagles being no exception. Since being named Young Eagles co-chairman along with Sully Sullenberger, I have been very active as an EAA volunteer, and as part of this re-evaluation have taken the position of Vice President, Chapters and Youth Education. This is a completely new position at EAA's highest level, reflecting EAA leadership's commitment to both youth programs and chapters.
The heart of the tremendously successful Young Eagles program has always been the chapters, and in the coming months I will express to you our new vision for the future. But for now, I'd just like to thank all the EAA membership for this opportunity to serve you and our organization.
EAA Vice President, Chapters and Youth Education
