Special Election Completes Board

The polls closed Jan. 6 in a special election to fill an empty Canadian seat on the Steering Group. With the unanimous election of Scott Armstrong, Manager, Media and External Affairs, with the Greater Toronto Airports Authority, the 2012 Steering Group is now complete.

As part of the Participation Plans that was adopted last August, the Steering Group was expanded to 20 airport representatives - 15 from U.S. airports and five from Canadian Airports. The group continues to have three Associate members. This election was the first using procedures spelled out in the Participation Plan to fill a mid-term vacancy on the group.

The Steering Group will have its first 2012 meeting on Jan. 25 in Long Beach in conjunction with the Air Service Data and Planning Seminar and the Media Relations and Crisis Communications Seminar.
