I am honored to have been elected by the Board of Directors to serve as your President this year. The Board meeting at which this election took place was held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the ABS membership at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2019. Having served on your Board of Directors for the past three years, I am grateful to have the opportunity to now serve to an even greater extent as your President, and give back to an organization that has given me so much: safety and maintenance education, aviation mentors, friends, and incredible other benefits to its members. Immediate past president Jay Burris is handing over a very vibrant, financially sound and active ABS. Well done Jay!
