My local EAA chapter is suffering for a lack of leadership. At the meeting where we took nominations for officers, there was a lot of silence and anxiety. We did get officers, including me, but we’re in a bad way. No one, again including me, has any particular enthusiasm for an EAA chapter. The question is this: what does being an EAA chapter get us that we couldn’t get from being a handful of pilots who occasionally fly to breakfast? We haven’t done Young Eagles in a long time. We sponsored a Ray Scholarship a couple of years ago, but it was pretty much a bust. The most prolific builder on the field isn’t a member. Almost none of the members are builders. Why shouldn’t we just dissolve the chapter and fly together without the EAA and State paperwork? Before you tell me to “be the change,” re-read the post. I’m not interested in cheerleading an EAA chapter. I’m interested in doing the occasional fly-out or camping trip.
