From the desk of ATEC President Ryan Goertzen: I wanted to reach out to the ATEC Community to let you know that Tim Guerrero has resigned his board director position with ATEC. Tim has been instrumental to our organization for many years. He has led the charge pushing the FAA on key initiatives, from human factors to the rulemaking process. Tim played a critical role in the working groups that were formed to address recommendations by the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee in 2008. Tim committed countless hours to ATEC initiatives such as operations specifications development, FAA guidance material rewrites, the fight for distance learning and facilitation of the first-ever FAA course in Oklahoma City for part 147 inspectors. It has been an honor to work with Tim. As an employee of Spartan Education Group I have seen Tim work tirelessly every day for our students. He is a great leader and educator and he will be missed representing our membership on the Board of Directors. Tim will continue his role as an active ATEC member and at Redstone College changing student’s lives every day.
Each year, ATEC's annual conference (April 1-3, 2017 in Seattle) provides an opportunity for the AMTS community to engage on topics important to the future of aviation maintenance education. By submitting and presenting papers, education professionals can share success, workshop ideas and otherwise expand the academic horizons of their peers.
To be considered, submit an abstract by Jan. 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org. More information available at Call for Papers.
Stay tuned for updates on everything ATEC members need to know as well as ways that you can help the council and the AMTS community.
