Chapter News
Young Eagles
There are several events scheduled during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2010 that will be of interest to chapter coordinators and Young Eagle volunteers.
  • Young Eagles Forum, hosted by North Carolina Field Representatives Jim and Sandy Dukeman, Monday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. in the Dake Corporation Pavilion #1. Jim and Sandy are experienced field representatives and have hosted this forum for several years. Topics will include recruiting and organizing successful Young Eagle events.
  • Young Eagles and Aviation Exploring, Tuesday, July 27 at 6 p.m. Many chapters have asked about starting an Aviation Exploring Post. It may seem like a big task, but it really isn't. Young Eagle co-chair Jeff Skiles will host an informal meeting about Aviation Exploring at the Explorers base on the AirVenture site. The base is located near the Warbird area. It is I-5 on the site map. Jeff and several leaders from Chapter that have started Explorer Posts will be available to answer your questions. Even if your chapter is not currently thinking about starting a post, feel free to stop by meet Jeff and learn more. You'll also see the Aviation Exploring encampment in action. Please meet at the kitchen building.
  • EAA Young Eagles Leaders Workshop, Wednesday, July 28, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the PHP Conference Center tent. This annual workshop provides valuable tips and techniques from other volunteers and the latest information from the Young Eagles office. Lunch is included. Please register in advance here.
  • EAA Young Eagles Awards Banquet, Wednesday, July 28, 5:30 p.m. at EAA AirVenture Museum's Eagle Hangar. Joining us will be our featured guest speaker, Young Eagles cochairman Sully Sullenberger. The event is now sold out.

This month we spotlight the EAA Chapter 95 (Morris, Illinois) newsletter which features a review of its Learn to Fly Day activities and a nice article from Tom Ellis about his experience as a chapter leader: www.EAA.org/chapters/resources/articles/1006_chapter95.pdf. Next, we head west to Sacramento, California, where you can read about EAA Chapter 52's recent B-17 tour stop: www.EAA52.org/NL_May2010.pdf.
There are many ways chapters can use the official EAA logo: newsletters, banners, chapter websites, or promotional materials. If you need a high-quality reproduction of the logo, it's as close as your computer. Click here to review the logo policy and then download the current logo. EAA logo
