Bolen Welcomes Schedulers to 20th Annual S&D Conference

LONG BEACH, CA, January 14, 2009 –NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen, who will speak directly to Attendees at a luncheon on Friday, congratulated the NBAA S&D Committee and the entire scheduler/dispatcher community as the 20th Annual S&D Conference got underway today.

“The energy and enthusiasm of the Schedulers & Dispatchers (S&D) Committee is very important to NBAA, and I salute all members of the Committee – past and present – as well as the entire scheduler/dispatcher community as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the inaugural S&D Conference.

“Throughout the years, the S&D Committee has continuously enhanced the Conference, and the expertise developed for this annual event has helped improve other NBAA meetings,” noted Bolen. “In addition, the Committee has championed professional development initiatives that have enhanced training and education programs for not just schedulers and dispatchers, but all flight department professionals.

“Most importantly, the can-do attitude of schedulers and dispatchers is a mindset that I believe we need to apply to all our endeavors, especially as the industry faces formidable challenges,” continued Bolen.

“Schedulers and dispatchers have proven that when individuals work together, much can be accomplished, and the S&D Conference is a tangible example of what dedicated people can do when they bring their talent and expertise to the table, share their thoughts openly, and demonstrate a willingness to experiment. When we all reach out collectively, we really can create something special.

“I hope we can all bring the energy, enthusiasm and commitment personified by schedulers and dispatchers and exhibited each year at their Conference to everything we do in business aviation,” concluded Bolen.
