Last week, women in aviation safety professions gathered for networking and financial education in a joint event in Manhattan Beach, Calif. “Connecting Professional Women with their Professional and Financial Goals” was hosted and sponsored by SkyOne Federal Credit Union and Professional Women Controllers, Inc. (PWC).
NATCA SkyOne Representative Dina Earl and Los Angeles Center (ZLA) NATCA member Micah Freeman organized the event, which included broad participation from aviation professional organizations including the National Hispanic Coalition of Federal Aviation Employees (NHCFAE).
“It was an awesome, successful event,” Freeman said. “We had great food and information provided on estate planning. Big kudos to the marketing department, including Dina Earl at SkyOne for taking care of logistics and sponsoring the event.”
Freeman and Earl hope to make it an annual event, with plans to host it in different locations to give members around the region a chance to attend.
Special guests included NATCA Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert, PWC President Patti Wilson, NHCFAE President Faviola Garcia, and SkyOne CEO Eileen Rivera. Aviation professionals and NATCA members also attended from Van Nuys ATCT (VNY), Joshua Control Facility (JCF), ZLA, Long Beach ATCT (LGB), Los Angeles ATCT (LAX) and Southern California TRACON (SCT).
