On June 11, Rockford ATCT (RFD) members held a solidarity event with a Rockford Rivets Baseball game. FacRep Robert Wenc organized the event for the local, and 28 NATCA members and family attended.
Among the special guests and speakers at the event were Great Lakes Regional Vice President (RVP) Bryan Zilonis, Great Lakes Alternate RVP Drew MacQueen, and Chicago Center (ZAU) FacRep Toby Hauck. The focus for all the speakers was legislative activism, the importance of building relationships, and how being involved affects everyone.
RFD Treasurer David Woolridge also spoke to members about his experience attending NATCA in Washington for the first time last month.
