Andrew Griffith - AMA Executive Council 2019 Campaign Statements

From Andrew Griffith - Jacksonville, Florida

I am writing to the members of AMA District-V, as I seek election to represent you as your AMA Vice President and to represent you on the AMA Executive Council.

My experiences are exceptionally broad in all forms of aviation. My full scale aviation experiences include my service as a Navy Petty Officer 1st class where I flew on board P-3 Orion patrol aircraft. I've been involved in the hobby and an AMA member since the late 1970's where I got my start flying gliders. I have been a regular review, event, and author to Model Aviation, Park Flyer, Fly RC, Model Airplane News, RC Heli Pilot, and RC Helicopter magazines as well as an online content author on RC Universe web site. I have been an AMA contest director and associate VP for over 10 years and served 7 months as your District-V VP to fill the remaining term when our then VP stepped down in 2016.

I fly everything RC related; jets, giant scale, gliders, helicopters, and foamies, and I also hold both fixed wing and rotary AMA turbine waivers. My broad experience gives me an excellent foundation in understanding the needs of our diverse membership base.

I am well experienced in business management and budgeting and I currently work as a Network Engineer and security specialist for a large software company. I will utilize my experiences for sound decision making and responsible management of your membership dues.

For many years I have attended countless clubs and their flying events. As a District V AVP I have worked with members, answering their concerns on FAA regulation and legal issues as well as our shared enjoyment of model aviation.

I learned a lot about AMA leadership in my short stint as VP and look forward to putting that to use to hit the ground running if elected VP. Most importantly I learned that we have an awesome staff at AMA HQ and while there's a lot I don't know, I know who the experts are and who to ask whether it's a club issue, flying site help, insurance or government relations.
