At this meeting, we will discuss the possibility of using the EAA’s provided web site. I can see advantages and disadvantages. If you would like to see what EAA is offering the webinar was recorded and is available on the EAA web site. View the video if you have the opportunity.

We have had a request from another chapter to donate our Young Eagle credits to them so that they can send two of their Young Eagles to Air Camp. We currently have 15 YE credits valued at $5.00 each. We can spend the money on something to directly benefit our YE program od donate them to another chapter or return them to the EAA. A few years ago several chapters donated YE credits to us so that we could send a YE to Air Camp. Unfortunately, that person experienced a family health emergency and was unable to attend.
