The Chapter 1361 Board of Directors voted in two new Board members at the January 25th Board Meeting, one a Director and one an Officer, to fill vacancies created by resignations.
Randy Dierks was chosen to fill the remaining term of the Director position created by the resignation of Mike Burris. Randy has been a hard worker for the Chapter at each of our events and has extensive experience in the operation of non-profit organizations.
Jack Buchold has assumed the position of Chapter Treasurer to fill the vacancy created by Bill Barret’s resignation, tendered at the Board Meeting. Jack is a tenant on the Reno-Stead Airport, is the secretary of the Reno-Stead Airport Association and is a retired bank examiner.
I am looking forward to working with our new Board members and feel that both Randy and Jack will be tremendous assets to Chapter 1361.
Lastly, I want to express my sincere appreciation for all of the work that Bill Barrett and Mike Burris have done through the years to keep Chapter 1361 alive. Bill had been the Chapter Secretary since the Chapter was established in 2002 and is one of the Chapter’s Founding Members. If it were not for these two individuals there would not be an EAA Chapter 1361.
