SAFE Updates Leadership With Record Member Turnout

Chan, Hare, Parker Win Board Vote

Andrew Chan, Michael Hare and Newlan Parker are the three new members of the SAFE volunteer Board of Directors following the recent SAFE Board of Directors election Their three-year terms will commence at their installation at the SAFE Annual Meeting in July or August.

But most encouraging was this year's voter turnout. "We are proud to announce that over 25% of our membership participated in the voting process," said SAFE Executive Director David St George. "It's a new record, and bodes very well for keeping SAFE a member-responsive professional organization. It's a key governance policy at SAFE."

The three new SAFE Board members are:
Andy Chan runs RIght Rudder Aviation in Florida, a busy flight school and Pipistrel dealer. Andy is an energetic entrepreneur and aviation educator with 2600TT, 1500 Dual given. Andy ran for the board to extend his personal reach and mission: "to make the dream of flight accessible to everyone and instill each and every client with an innate, unrelenting culture of safety."
Michael Hare is a retired USAF Colonel (34 years of service) and also previously a Delta Air Lines Captain. He is an active and passionate ATP, Gold Seal CFI/II, MEI, with 15,400 hours, teaching GA pilots every day. He ran for the SAFE board to continue the work he did throughout his professional career: "to help shape the future of aviation while maintaining our high standards."
Newlan Parker is a DPE and CFI, and currently a Captain in a Citation Mustang flying for a Montana hospital. He started his aviation career in the US Navy and has flown in 27 different countries and all 50 states. Newlan considers being a DPE "the highest honor and most humbling experience of his career" and says spending time with his family and flying Super Cubs in Montana are his favorite things to do.

SAFE's founding charter imposes a two-term limit for the nine Board member positions and specifies three-year staggered terms. Thus, three Board positions expire each year, requiring annual election in June. The new Board members are (usually) installed at that year's AirVenture in Oshkosh. The provisions are to ensure continued member control.
