New Leader Tabbed for Chapters, Eagle Flights Programs
By Jeff Skiles, EAA 336120
EAA Vice President of Chapters and Youth Education
April 17, 2012 - Due to our restructuring at headquarters, several new positions were created in the chapters and youth education area to help fulfill EAA's mission of growing aviation participation and creating the next generation of aviators. As a result, I am very excited to announce that Trevor Janz will be heading up our chapters area as EAA's new manager of chapters and Eagle Flights.
Trevor has a background with EAA business development as well as previous experience as founder/vice-president of the Cessna and Piper Flyer associations. This experience will be of tremendous value in his new responsibility. Trevor is also a longtime member of EAA Chapter 444 in Northport, Wisconsin.
Trevor's position encompasses two major initiatives of our organization - developing and implementing Eagle Flights and working on programs to support and invigorate our chapter network. I believe that there could be no more suitable person for this effort, and I am delighted that Trevor has chosen to join our team.
You will all be working closely with Trevor in the growth and governance of your chapter in the coming years, and I know that you will be similarly impressed with his abilities. Rest assured, though, that you will still have our fantastic chapter coordinator Brenda Anderson to work with on a day-to-day basis in support of your chapter.
On another note, through our partnership with Lightspeed we are able to award Lightspeed Zulu noise-canceling headsets to two lucky Young Eagles pilots as recognition for their efforts and that of all of our dedicated volunteers:
- Tim Corban of Halsey, Oregon, was randomly selected in a drawing from a pool of first-time Young Eagles pilots.
- Margaret Ballou of Bucyrus, Ohio, was selected from our entire Young Eagles pilot volunteer base.
