EAA Bids Fond Farewell to Bob Warner
February 28, 2008 — Bob Warner, a familiar face to many EAAers, marks his last days as an EAA employee this week after 16 years with the organization. Bob has worn many different managerial hats during his tenure on staff at EAA. He came on board to lead EAA's government affairs efforts and advanced to a vice president position where he shepherded member and chapter relations.
"It's been great to be a part of EAA and the evolution of how we facilitate serving our members," Bob said. "I am always amazed at the strength, conviction, and passion our members and volunteers have. Everyone has the spirit of the organization, and that has truly been the joy of it all."
Recognizing Bob's contributions, EAA President Tom Poberezny said, "Bob has provided outstanding value as a member of EAA staff. He personifies the culture of the organization; he is truly dedicated to serving members, as evidenced by his activities in the field. He was also a strong member advocate on staff.
"Though Bob is leaving day-to-day employment at EAA, he's assured me that he and Noel will continue to be active EAA members, and that is much appreciated. We thank Bob for his dedicated service and wish him the best in his future endeavors."
Although Warner is ending his day-to-day working life with EAA, he is a Lifetime member and plans to stay involved as a volunteer with his wife, Noel Marshall, who helped spearhead the Protect Our Planes volunteer group at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. "One of the great things about EAA is the way members can 'morph' into another role within the organization," he said. "Noel and I are looking forward to continuing to be a part of EAA."
