The annual WNCPA Christmas dinner is our Association’s premier social event of the year and, as such, is a formal event, held usually the first Tuesday in December at a local hotel or conference facility. The Christmas Dinner also doubles as the Association’s December general meeting. Of course, since the primary purpose is to socialize and celebrate the season, we forego the typcial business meeting agenda and enjoy a fine meal and feature presentation.
At the December 2014 dinner, we were honored to have as our guests AOPA CEO Mark Baker and AOPA Pilot Editor-in Chief Tom Haines. In previous years, guest speakers have included nationally renowned aviation speaker and humorist, Ralph Hood, Avemco Insurance Company President, Jonathan “JJ” Greenway, and the very sought-after Air Safety Instructor (and extremely funny guy), Mark Grady.
