October 29, 2009 — Last weekend EAA welcomed 24 chapter leaders representing 16 chapters to EAA headquarters in Oshkosh for another Chapter Leaders Academy. The sessions are a chance to share success stories, learn from others experience, and the EAA staff is provided a chance to learn more about the needs and expectations of EAA chapters and members. Participants arrived from British Columbia, Ontario, California, Mississippi, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, and Wisconsin. The group met informally with Tom Poberezny on Friday evening before beginning a full day of learning on Saturday. Saturday evening Paul and Audrey Poberezny hosted a behind-the-scenes tour of the Founders’ Library. The Academy concluded at mid-day on Sunday, following a morning of discussions about challenges facing chapters and possible solutions.
