Reserve Your Spot Now—Special Chapter Leadership Academy, February 2016

Next academy: Oshkosh! February 4-5, 2016 (Thursday and Friday, prior to that weekend’s EAA Skiplane Fly-In/Chili Cook-Off)

Now is your chance to attend a very special EAA Chapter Leadership Academy, an interactive two-day workshop that focuses on topics important to you as chapter leaders.

Participants stay at the EAA Air Academy Lodge in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and immerse themselves in a wide range of chapter-related subjects such as chapter business fundamentals, recruitment, fundraising, public relations, EAA chapter resources, programs, and more!

The academy provides an excellent opportunity to network with other chapter leaders as well as interact with EAA staff.

This special session begins on Wednesday afternoon, where participants enjoy a social hour and a special dinner. Thursday starts a full day of classes, which conclude at noon on Friday. Stay over for Saturday’s EAA Skiplane Fly-In! Count on meeting and talking with a host of EAA staffers, and don’t miss a very special EAA AirVenture Museum tour we have planned for you!
