One Incumbent, Two New Directors Chosen
The Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) recently announced the results of its annual election to fill three seats on its nine-member Board of Directors.
Incumbent Arlynn McMahon, along with new Directors Susan Archer and Jack Vandeventer have been elected to three-year terms. McMahon is the 2009 National Flight Instructor of the Year and currently serves as Chief Mentor in support of SAFE's Aviation Educator Mentoring Program. New Director Susan Archer has served as an aircraft maintenance manager and an aviation facilities engineer. She currently serves as lead teacher for the Aerospace Technology Academy at First Coast High School as well as Chair of the Florida Consortium for Aerospace Career Education. Jack Vandeventer is a Charter member of SAFE, four-time Master Instructor, and business consultant with worldwide experience. He serves on SAFE's Mentoring Program committee as well.
According to Governance Committee Chair Sherry Rossiter, "We had a field of seven exceptional candidates running for three Board positions, which undoubtedly made for some tough decisions by our members. We thank all of the candidates for their desire to further improve SAFE's standing as a World Class organization, and we congratulate the three Board members on their election."
Incoming Directors will commence their new terms at the annual SAFE dinner-meeting held during AirVenture. SAFE is the only organization representing aviation educators where the entire Board of Directors is openly elected by the membership. Terms are staggered, with three seats expiring annually.
