The ABS Board of Directors and our executive staff recently met for an in-person American Bonanza Society and Air Safety Foundation Board meeting in Arlington, Texas, February 3-4. We typically only meet in person once a year when there is a year of no convention. The meeting consists of a full day and a half of strategic planning sessions for both ABS and ASF. We meet on items we would like to work on throughout the current year and beyond (the next three to five years.) I was excited and energized after the sessions as we brainstormed and collectively came up with very exciting action items to present to the membership. These items revolved around member engagement and how the Society and Foundation can better stay connected and communicate with our existing members while also recruiting new ones.
