I am not sure who penned
the phrase “the lazy days of
summer” as summer always
seems to go by quickly—and
this year was certainly no
exception. The staff and
board members of WAI have
been busy planning several
upcoming events, details of
which are available through-
out this issue.
Theater in the Woods during
EAA AirVenture 2010
During the WAI Celebrity
Breakfast at Oshkosh, several announcements were made
including several new scholarships being offered this year.
We also announced a new member benefit, made possible
through a partnership with Seattle Avionics, providing free
flight planning software to our members through our web site.
Upgraded versions of the package are also available to WAI
members at a significant discount.
WAI Headquarters here in Ohio has been an especially busy
spot all summer. Not only are we planning for our annual
International Conference, scheduled for February 24th to 26th
in Reno, Nevada, we are also hosting a Regional conference
in England November 5th to 6th. The WAI European Regional
Conference is being held in a beautiful setting, the Brookla-
nds Museum in Surrey, England (near London) and features
aviation, motor vehicles and other historical artifacts. The
speakers include a variety of women in aviation and during
the Opening Reception you will have a chance to win a seat on
a Concorde flight simulator.
The hotel we are using for the WAI Conference in Reno has
extended a significant discount room rate to us. The Grand
Sierra regular room rate is now only $89/night and the Summit
Suites have been reduced to $115/night. But book now, the
discount is through November 15, 2010 only. A terrific line-up
of speakers and an excellent variety of exhibitors are already in
place for this event. See more details on pages 32-34.
We will be playing a significant role again at AOPA’s Aviation
Summit in Long Beach, California, this November. If you plan to
attend that show and would like to volunteer at our booth or in
the Women’s Wing we would like to hear from you. WAI will
host a panel during one of the morning sessions and host mini-
forums with several aviation celebrities planning to join us.
Membership Campaign was launched
during EAA’s AirVenture and will run
through July of 2011. You can win
a cruise, airline tickets, Conference
registrations and more; but only if you
participate. Best of all—everyone who
of membership recruitment. So go out and get a member and
help WAI, your organization, to expand its network. (see Page
6) Remember, the real benefactor when WAI’s network grows
is you! Hope to see you at a show or conference soon.
