Eagle Society

An Eagle Society Member will have demonstrated their dedication to the AIA with their actions and deeds on behalf of the AIA, as well as having made substantial contributions to the aviation industry and/or demonstrated achievement in their career in aviation. Membership in the "AIA Eagle Society" is conferred by nomination by the President of the AIA, and awarded with the concurrence of the majority of the Board of Directors. The AIA Eagle Society award is presented annually at the AIA's Annual Conference and has no limitations on the number of inductees. At the time of their induction, recipients shall have had at least ten (10) continuous years of membership in the AIA, unless this requirement is waived by a majority of the Board based on good cause.

Please congratulate the new class of The Aviation Insurance Association's Eagle Society.
