One of the ways ATEC establishes its leadership is by giving back to the community, serving on boards of important organizations and participating in legislative and regulatory efforts.
The FAA is calling for nominations to a new board to advise it on recruiting more women to aviation. For ATEC, it is an important opportunity to spread the word on the value of the aviation maintenance technician career and advise on education issues surrounding that goal.
The new board responds to a call in the 2018 FAA Reauthorization Act, Section 612, Supporting Women’s Involvement in the Aviation Field. Its purpose is to advise the agency on how to encourage girls and women to enter the field and its goal is to promote organizations and programs providing education, training, mentorships, outreach and recruitment in the aviation industry.
Deadline for nominations is October 29 when FAA must receive the nomination package. Complete details of the opportunities, duties and instructions on the nomination package can be found here.
