Representatives from several local part 147 schools, industry and the Federal Aviation Administration convened to get an update on ATEC activities, give feedback on the council's three-year strategic plan, learn more about the impending Airman Certification Standards (ACS), and discuss how ATEC can support local initiatives and partnerships.
Broward College Associate Dean Sean Gallagan made the trip to Daytona Beach from Ft. Lauderdale. After attending the spring annual conference, he was eager to discuss big picture issues in a more intimate environment, "not only was it a great networking opportunity, we were able to visualize how changes at the federal level would affect us as a local community."
A big thank you to Embry-Riddle's Lorrie Mikesell and Chuck Horning for hosting the event. Keep an eye out for similar regional outreach meetings in your area. Want to host? Give us a call!
