WASHINGTON, D.C. – Tom Hendricks, president of the National Air Transportation Association (NATA), announced April 4, 2016, his intentions to resign from NATA upon the completion of his employment agreement, which expires at the end of August.
“During the past four years we have – together – enhanced the association’s position as the voice of aviation business on Capitol Hill, at the agencies, and in the states,” said Hendricks. “I am also pleased to have led the association’s move to downtown Washington, DC, overseen the expansion of the association’s membership, and the development of new products and services to help aviation businesses operate safely and effectively in the marketplace.”
The NATA board of directors will designate one of its members to assume the duties as interim President & CEO in September. NATA’s two senior vice presidents, William R. Deere and Timothy R. Obitts, will continue to oversee the association’s daily activities.
