Postponement of Spring Event

Dear ATAC Members and Stakeholder Friends, 

I wish to inform you that ATAC is postponing its Spring Event / Aviation Day-on-the-Hill until the Fall. Current circumstances make it very unlikely that social gatherings of any kind will be wise, or even legal, in early May. We should be able to send you information of a new Fall date by the end of May. 

Rest assured that ATAC is currently working relentlessly to help its Members in these very troubling times and lobbying the Government to table a significant and equitable financial aid program. Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would be happy to be of service to you.
