For The MediaAPA Information Hotline     
Board of Directors Special Meeting


This is APA Communications Director Gregg Overman with the APA Information Hotline for Thursday, April 16.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS SPECIAL MEETING: The board of directors resumed its special meeting at 9 a.m. at APA headquarters.

Flight Time/Duty Time Subcommittee Deputy Chairman CA Doug Pinion, subcommittee member FO Christine Daniel, Communications Committee Chairman CA Dennis Tajer and Director of Pilot Negotiations and Contract Administration Chuck Hairston participated in additional discussions with the board on the issue of reassignment from deadhead to live leg, with board members providing input into what guidance APA should give pilots facing this type of reassignment. These discussions took place in both open and closed session and made up most of the day’s agenda. You can expect to receive APA’s guidance regarding this important contractual issue soon.

In other activity, the board voted to approve the following motion regarding the APA Financial Audit Committee: It was moved that the APA BOD waive Policy Manual Section 4.15 paragraphs E, F and G and appoints LGA CH Mike Burr, PHL VC Paul Music and MIA VC Tom Gallagher to replace current FAC members. These new FAC members shall assume the below associated FAC member terms; however, the current FAC shall be allowed to present their report at the May 2015 BOD meeting.

  • DFW VC Wales has a new three-year term.
  • LGA CH Burr completes former ORD CH McClellan’s term and assumes the new associated term scheduled for election at the 2015 Spring BOD Meeting.
  • PHL VC Music completes BOS VC Dillard’s term.
  • MIA VC Gallagher completes LAX VC Boyd’s term.
  • LGA CH Burr shall be Chairman of the FAC until a new FAC member is added to the committee.

The board adjourned its meeting mid-afternoon. The regularly scheduled spring board of directors meeting is scheduled May 4–8.
