February 12, 2015
The National Director and National Secretary/Treasurer met with various Congressman and a Senator to discuss our legislative agenda and how Congress can help AMFA achieve our craft’s legislative goals. With the FAA Reauthorization Bill process beginning in earnest soon, Louie Key and Justin Madden were able to convey AMFA’s position and urge our elected representatives to take action on our issues.
It was a very positive couple of days and AMFA was happy to have the newly elected SWAPA President Captain Paul Jackson as well as First Officer Chip Hancock, a member of their Governmental Affair Committee with us at most of the meetings. Much thanks are due to SWAPA and to our new lobbyist, Frank McCarthy from The Keelen Group for their support. We look forward to what 2015 can bring to the craft as a result of the hard work that is being accomplished by the Association.
