Chapter AGM 2023 and Fly Mart

Members gathered Monday evening for our Chapter November Meeting, serving as our AGM, and also for our first Fly Mart event!

In addition to the updates on membership (188, 8 new members in the past 3 months), Financials (strong, no issues), Hangar updates, Christmas & Holiday sign-ups, upcoming Board Meeting (Nov 21st) the meeting voted on the two open Board Positions of Vice President and Treasurer. The Chapter President passed the meeting to Bert Shipman.

Chapter By-laws required voting for two Executive Board positions. Member Bert Shipman had taken on the task of Nominations Chair to oversee the voting process. Bert reported and directed the following at the meeting:

“Having received two nominations, one for Octavian Codreanu as Chapter Vice President (nominated by Mike Parry), and for Chuck Shipman as Chapter Treasurer (nominated by Bud Swenson) and, having received no additional nominations up to the published cut-off date , the meeting moved to vote.

All members present approved both nominations (no nays), and Bert congratulated Octavian and Chuck on their volunteer Chapter Board assignments”.

On completion of the regular business, the  attending members moved to the Chapter Hangar for the Fly Mart!

Chapter members also got a chance to try the new Brandywine Soaring Club’s Glider Simulator (thanks Eric!) – very impressive!

It was a very successful evening and one we’ll repeat next year. Thanks to all who contributed, bought or sold. A total of $185 was donated to Chapter funds. And, equally importantly, fun was had!

President, EAA240
