Last week NATCA members at Springfield, Mo., ATCT (SGF) held a member meeting and solidarity event where they hosted NATCA leaders including Executive Vice President Trish Gilbert (pictured below), outgoing Central Regional Vice President Kevin Peterson, and Central RVP-Elect Aaron Merrick. Gilbert spoke to members about FAA hiring, the staffing crisis, and the NCEPT process. Central Region National Legislative Committee member Allison Schwaegel gave attendees an update on the region’s legislative activities. This meeting was Peterson’s last visit to Springfield before his upcoming retirement.
