WASHINGTON, D.C. — National Air Transportation Association (NATA) President and CEO Thomas L. Hendricks has announced his intention to resign Aug. 31.
“It has been an honor to lead NATA through this period of significant change by greatly enhancing its position as the voice of aviation business on Capitol Hill, at the agencies, and in the states,” he said. “I am also pleased to have led the association’s move to downtown Washington, D.C., overseen the expansion of the association’s membership, and the development of new products and services to help our members operate safely and effectively in the marketplace. Having accomplished these initiatives, I now look forward to new challenges and opportunities.”
A member of NATA’s board of directors will be designated to assume the duties as interim president/CEO effective Sept. 1 until a successor is named.
NATA’s senior vice presidents William R. Deere and Timothy R. Obitts will oversee the association’s daily activities.
