The HAI Board of Directors for 2019–20 was installed on July 1, 2019. A reception was held in Alexandria, Virginia, at the end of June to welcome the new board, connect with local HAI members, and offer a hearty thank-you to HAI’s volunteer leaders.
During the reception, outgoing board chairman Jim Wisecup (at right in photo) presented David Bjellos with a plaque expressing HAI’s appreciation of his volunteer work over the years. Bjellos, a pilot and aviation manager for Florida Crystals Corporation, has served on the HAI Board of Directors since 2013 and has worked closely with several committees, including the Environment / Fly Neighborly Committee. Although no longer chairman, Wisecup retained his board seat and is serving as the association’s assistant treasurer for the coming year.
