May 9, 2013 - To allow more EAA members to attend their annual membership meeting at AirVenture, which is also our annual convention, EAA's annual meeting has been moved to Wednesday, July 31, at 8:30 a.m. at Theater in the Woods. The annual meeting had traditionally been held on Saturday morning at the fly-in.
"We'd heard from numerous members that the Saturday morning meeting was too late in the week for them to attend. Thus, most years that annual meeting attendance was quite sparse," said Jack Pelton, EAA chairman of the board. "We also want to see more members at their annual meeting, have them meet and talk with our board members, and also update them on their organization's current status and future direction."
The annual meeting will continue to include the election of EAA board members, business and financial reports, a period for questions to the board from members, and this year a vote on restated EAA Articles of Incorporation. In order to vote for EAA board members at the annual meeting, EAA members must bring their current, valid membership card.
