In summary, the confidence that the membership has shown in me and my fellow Board members with their continued support is further affirmation of my dedication to the cause; to continue our focus on aviation safety and increase the value of the ASA to its members globally.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 22, 2008
In a tight race, aviation professionals from 11 countries and over 30 U.S. states elected three industry executives to the Aviation Suppliers Association (ASA) Board of Directors.
"We are very pleased to announce that Richard Levin, Managing Director for the A.J. Levin Company, Brent Webb, President of Aircraft Inventory Management & Services Ltd, and Mitch Weinberg, President for International Aircraft Associates, Inc have filled the remaining ASA Board member positions," states Michele Dickstein, President of ASA. "Our Association is fortunate that this year's spirited election brought several industry leaders as candidates, another factor which encouraged more than 300 global companies to exercise their voting options and decide who would capture these key positions."
In order to build successful associations it is imperative to engage forward thinking and dedicated leadership. "To that end, our company has been a supporter of ASA from the beginning as well as active members for over a decade," replies Richard Levin, Managing Director for A.J. Levin Company. "These are just two reasons why it is an honor for me to be part of the Board which influences ASA's strategic workshops, industry panels, and global conferences that positively shape our industry."
Focus on goals that build unmatched knowledge bases which drive change and record membership growth are also critical to global associations. "In my mind our track record and ability to exceed the association's goals are examples that highlight the Board of Directors determination and that is why I am very proud to be re-elected to serve," remarks Brent Webb, President of Aircraft Inventory Management & Services Ltd. "Areas that show my personal involvement include seeking Department of Commerce understanding on the negative effects of FAA reauthorization as it is written, oversight on the promulgation of the Electronic 8130-3, and continued efforts that promote advancement in business and quality practices. The bottom line is that together, ASA members and the Board of Directors are making a difference."
"To mirror Brent's comments, I am very pleased to have been re-elected to the Board," adds Mitch Weinberg, President for International Aircraft Associates, Inc. "In summary, the confidence that the membership has shown in me and my fellow Board members with their continued support is further affirmation of my dedication to the cause; to continue our focus on aviation safety and increase the value of the ASA to its members globally."
