2018-2019 BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND APPRECIATION TO DEPARTING BOARD MEMBERS
Three elections for regional Board members were held at the end of 2017, Yukon, Quebec and Alberta. Eric Olivier was reelected in Quebec, Stephen Kurth was reelected in Yukon and Randy Parkin was elected as Director for Alberta, after President Bruce Busby chose to step back and not run for reelection.
The Board of Directors will elect a President and Vice-President from the current Directors when they meet at the Annual Directors Meeting in May, 2018.
In the interim, I (Vice-President Nick Jones, Ontario Director) serve as Acting President.
It is with much appreciation for his many years of volunteer service that HPAC acknowledges the contributions of Bruce Busby: serving as a Board member representing Alberta pilots since 2005, as Vice-President 2009-2016 and as President 2016-2017, assuming the Presidency at a very difficult time after the untimely death of our then-President Domagoj Juretic.
HPAC also acknowledges the many years of volunteer service of Gilles Normandeau, representing Manitoba pilots, who served on the Board of Directors from 2009 until 2017, serving as Secretary for the past few years.
We collectively owe a debt of thanks to the volunteers who work behind the scenes to make our association work: Board members, committee chairs and members, the Council of Senior Instructors, legal advisors, Transport Canada liaison, and FAI delegate.
Vice President, Acting President
