Don’t forget the Annual RAA POA Member Meeting, Saturday, March 20 at 1000 AM. This year the meeting will be at 9400 Rolling Hills Trail, Lago Vista, TX 78645. It is George Eeds’s hangar on the East side of the runway. Please bring a chair to sit on. Barbeque to follow the meeting.
This year there are three open positions for the RAA POA board. The vacancies are for Alan Anderson, who resigned since he sold his last lot and is no longer a property owner. Alan we miss you. Jim Awalt, who after two exceptional terms, six years, has contributed so much in foresight, management, coordination with the city & TxDot and fathered our ten year agreement with the city. Jim, we will miss you! And finally, Ray Chatelain, who we ALL are so VERY, VERY grateful for being on the board longer than dirt, well, about four terms! He has saved us thousand upon thousands of dollars in handling our accounting, bill paying, dues collection, parking collection, banking, finances, state and federal filings. Ray, we will miss you!
However, we have three most qualified nominees to fill the POA board. Claudette Colwell, Rick Crider and Mike Schaffer. They are all most qualified and willing to serve our community and to help keep our airport financially strong provide strong business and airport experience and they want to see that our airport prospers and continues to operate as safely and efficiently as it has over the years. They have provided autobiographies of themselves, which I have included below.
In addition, I am attaching a ballot that I ask that you print off, vote and bring with you to the meeting or give it to someone along with your proxy. You can also, fill them in and fax, both the proxy and ballot to 512-458-8376 if you canâ€™t attend the meeting.
