Elected to a two-year director term were Mark Wishart, quality engineer II, Gulfstream Aerospace; and Ed Martinkus, director of maintenance, Reyes Holdings.
Gordon, elected to his second year as chairman of PAMA, said, “The experience level of all nominees was of the highest caliber, enabling our board members to better serve and improve the needs of our members. The induction of the newly elected board extends our opportunity to stay focused on the PAMA strategic plan, including our PAMA 2009 Aviation Maintenance & Management Symposium in Dallas, our PAMA/SAE Institute Aviation Maintenance and Production certification program, and our expanded programs to bring in new individual and corporate members. The support of these individual volunteers is more critical than ever in these difficult economical times.”
