AOPA Members Working Group
AOPA Members Working Group meets around four times each year to interact with its members. All members are welcome to attend. Meetings are usually held on a Saturday at or near an airfield and timed to allow attendees to fly in and out - typically arriving at 10am and finishing around 3pm, with a break for lunch.
The MWG is usually very well supported. Pauline Vahey, our Chairman, Martin Robinson, our CEO, and Nick Wilcock, our Regulatory Expert usually attend and meetings are chaired by David Chambers. Several members are regular attendees while some are only able to come less frequently.
The MWG terms of reference (see below) include nurturing a number of initiatives to fruition. It provides a chance to meet members of the Executive, find out what’s going on, express your views and get involved in new projects and initiatives that interest you.
If you'd like to attend or volunteer your services to assist AOPA in any way please contact David Chambers.
