    The AGIFORS Council has been expanded to include two additional Members. Rodrigo Acuna-Agost will share the role of Symposium Technical Chair with Semi Gabteni. Sergey Shebalov is taking over the role of Study Group Coordinator from John-Paul Clarke, who will remain on the Council as AGIFORS Secretary.

    Specifically, the AGIFORS Council is seeking nominees who are willing to serve a three-year term as a co-Chair of one of our four Study Groups


    As you know, Study Groups are an integral part of what we do in AGIFORS. They provide a home for members who share a common interest––whether it be crew management, airline operations, revenue management, or scheduling and strategic planning––and a venue to which we return each Spring to learn about the latest thinking and advancements in our specific field of interest. Thus, it is critically important that these study groups have active and dedicated leadership.
     
    So, if you are (or know someone who is) willing to contribute to the advancement of airline OR by serving as a Study Group co-Chair, please send a short bio (no longer than 150 words in length) to the Study Group Coordinator, Sergey Shebalov (Sergey.Shebalov@agifors.org) and the AGIFORS Secretary, John-Paul Clarke (secretary@agifors.org) on or before Friday 26 October.
     
    Self nominations are strongly encouraged. That said, if you decide to nominate someone else, please make sure they agree with being nominated.
