ARSA Board, New President Look Ahead

WASHINGTON – On Oct. 17, Jim Perdue, vice president and manager of sales for SONICO, Inc. in Moses Lake, Washington, was elected president of the Aeronautical Repair Station Association’s (ARSA) Board of Directors at the group’s annual meeting in Montreal.

An ARSA board member since 2006, Perdue previously served as treasurer and then vice president, following the typical trajectory for leaders of the volunteer body. Outgoing president Gary Jordan, president and CEO of Jordan Propeller Service in San Antonio, Texas, will remain on the board.

“We’re entering an important year for the association,” said Perdue. “We’re going to help Congress reauthorize the FAA, address the challenge of finding and growing a skilled technical workforce, expand our influence internationally and continue to provide the finest regulatory compliance support in the industry.

“I’m glad that Gary [Jordan] will still be around, of course, and I’m thankful to have such great, experienced board members working with me. This is a great time for ARSA and its members.”

Gary Hudnall, general manager of Jet Center MFR in Medford, Oregon, has risen from secretary to vice president – now a heartbeat away from the top position. Warner Calvo, quality and safety directory at Coopesa, R.L. in Alajuela, Costa Rica and the board’s newest member, completes the corps of officers as the association’s new secretary.

Overall, directorship on the eleven-person board – which represents a broad range of international maintenance interests – will be unchanged for 2015. For more information, visit http://arsa.org/about-us/board-of-directors/.
