REPORT

Good morning ladies and gentlemen.

First off, I’d like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  It’s been a pleasure working with all of you this past year, and I look forward to next year.  As it is with the holidays, everyone gets busy, and that includes the airlines (which means me).

My schedule is nothing less than horrible for the next 22 days – 18 December through 8 January – I do not have a single calendar off.  I will be flying up to 5 flights a day, every day.  My FAA required rest of 24 hours in 7 days can be found only between pairings, like from 1600 on one day until 1610 the next day.  With that being said, I will be nothing short of nearly completely unavailable for anything other than answering e-mails from my phone as the laptop and other materials are too bulky to carry in my flight bags.

If there are any losses of members, I will not be available to attend services.  I will not be able to attend any meetings or other events.  I am sorry for any inconvenience, but if something comes up, I will need to ask the State Reps to try to handle the issue.  If the Reps can’t, I may have to defer the issue to another board member.  I will greatly appreciate any help I can get, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart in advance.

With that being said, I will also make this my official notice that I do not plan on running for re-election to the board in 2015.  I have found that due to the amount of travel I do I cannot commit enough of myself to the members that are looking to me for help, guidance, support or information.  I absolutely love the job and position but find that where I am home only 20% of the time I can rarely be where I am wanted and/or expected.  I am sure there will be several people that will want to step up to the mound and relieve me.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions.   

As always, I remain

 

Loyal to Our Duty,
