As there was not a quorum present for the Board to meet officially, Ken Hardwick opened the meeting for discussion at 7:20 pm. Present were: Ken Hardwick (NPAHA); Dave Martin (OPA); Herb Jolliff (IAHA); Doug Davis (PCOPA) and Andy Andersen (OFF). Andy reported ISAS Secretary, Robert English, could not attend and asked Andy to take notes.
Discussion centered around topics that need ISAS Board attention at the next Board Meeting, rescheduled for either August 11 or 13, 2008. Ken is to poll members and set date, emphasizing need for attendance of members to change By-Laws to expand number of user organization representatives. Andy reported on the 2008 Pilot Memorial Event review meeting held on July 7th, including a financial summery. The review indicated the Pilot Memorial Event was successful but weather required using ‘Plan B’ and moving the ceremony inside the EAA Ch 292 hangar. The question was asked if the Pilot Memorial Event should be planned for 2009 and those present said it should be if there is support like we have had in the past.
Andy reported on a draft proposal by the City of Independence to encourage Cessna Aircraft Company to establish a final assemble facility for the new Cessna LSA ‘Skycatcher’ on 45 acres west of 7S5 as part of expanding the city UGB. Andy distributed a survey form from the new city 2020 Vision Committee to determine how residents would like the city to be developed by year 2020. Completed forms are to be deposited at City Hall or Library. Andy also reported on the status of the new bill being sponsored by the OFF/OAA Boards to establish an Airport Planning Area (APA) within a 3 mile radius of the main runway of all public use airports. Most of the other discussion centered on what changes are needed in the By-Laws and how to encourage 7S5 user representatives to attend the ISAS Board quarterly meetings.
Next meeting will be on August 11 or 13, 2008 at 7 pm in Gabel’s hangar.
The Non-Meeting was concluded at 8:15 PM.
HAPPY LANDINGS! Andy Andersen, Acting Secretary.
