AOPA Members Working Group
AOPA Members Working Group (MemWG) meets around four times each year to interact with its members. All members are welcome to attend, either in person or remotely via Zoom.. Meetings are usually held on a Saturday via Zoom and sometimes also in person at or near an airfield.
The MemWG is usually very well supported. Pauline Vahey, our Chairman, Martin Robinson, our CEO, Nick Wilcock, our Regulatory expert, John Walker, our Airfields expert and Malcom Bird, Director and member of the AOPA Maintenance Working Group, usually attend. Currently meetings are chaired by Pauline.
Several members are regular attendees but all members are encouraged to join and participate, even if only on an occasional basis.
The MWG terms of reference (see below) include the potential to nurture new initiatives to fruition. It provides a chance to meet members of the Executive, find out what’s going on, express your views and get involved in aspects of AOPA UK's projects and initiatives that interest you.
If you'd like to attend or volunteer your services to assist AOPA in any way please contact Pauline Vahey.
