managed bi-annual Board of Directors meeting including hotel, catering, travel, PowerPoints, hospitality suites, theme design,
promotion, and political coverage. The
goal here was to market our airline and get top-level pilots to visit our suite. Those pilots eventually decide
our union budget for the year and this effort generates millions of dollars for our union. There was a line out
the door and we topped United Airlines, FedEx, Delta, and all others (who had triple and quadruple our budget). Our campaign
was so successful we ended up with $3 million, up $1 million from last year.
