The Wright B Flyer Board of Trustees met on January 19, 2016 to conduct its annual officer elections. Jay Jabour was nominated for the Chairman of the Board, George Forest was nominated for President, Fred Tegarden was nominated for Vice President and Dennis Cable was nominated to continue as Treasurer. In a unanimous vote of the board the nominations were approved. Please congratulate Jay, George, Fred and Dennis.
There were two other changes to the board. Tim Gaffney resigned from the board. Tim’s duties with the National Aviation Heritage Area have increased and he felt he could not meet his obligations to the board. Tim isn’t really going anywhere; he will still be closely linked to the Wright B Flyer. Also resigning from the board is Pete Britton. Please wish Tim and Pete all the best.
The board took nominations to fill the vacancies on the board. Long-time volunteer John Kennedy was nominated, and unanimously elected, to fill a vacancy on the board in the class of 2016.
