The Association of Women in Aviation Maintenance (AWAM) founded a new chapter for members in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Designed to encourage pursuit of aviation maintenance as a career the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter 16 was founded by United Airlines Senior Manager Airframe & Overhaul Kim Pritchard and two United Airlines colleagues Marilyn Adkins and Keri Martin who inaugurated the new chapter with a pre-holiday Happy Hour on December 5.
“Our AWAM chapter is committed to continuing to work hard on outreach for the under-represented, and to encourage females to pursue STEM-based positions,” said Pritchard. “Chapter officers are developing 2020’s calendar of events. In honor of our New Chapter 16 – “Sweet 16 we are offering a discount of only $16 for 2020 to enjoy all the benefits of membership – networking, free skill-building workshops, family and member social activities, community volunteerism, and much more!”
Chapter 16 has also launched a Facebook page and wants to spread the word to build membership.
