If you are planning to attend the Women in Aviation International conference in Reno this month (March 22-24) I hope I’ll have a chance to meet you. I will be there, so if you see me walking around with copies of Aero Crew News in hand, stop and tell me what you like about the magazine, but more importantly, how you think we can improve.
The annual conference of Women in Aviation is a terrific event. And don’t think it’s only for women. The organization serves and has active memberships both genders. This organization, founded in 1990 by Dr. Peggy Chabrian, who is still its president, has grown, expanded its mission and served our industry in immeasurable ways. This year, they will hold “Hiring Briefings” by a number of regional and mainline carriers. These briefings are a valuable way to gain insight into hiring procedures, requirements and open positions. Choose from the list of participating carriers (including cargo) and schedule yourself to hear from a variety to best inform your decisions. Each carrier is presenting multiple times, so you should have no problem arranging your schedule to hear from each of the employers in which you are interested.
encourage you to attend every industry conference you can. Seize the opportunity to network, to learn and to share. This is our industry and we owe our support to organizations that support us.
