New IAC Executive Director

Lorrie Penner joins the EAA staff as the IAC Executive Director on January 2, 2017. IAC members - please welcome her when you get a chance.

Lorrie brings superb qualifications to the job and you will find her incredibly easy to work with, dedicated, and deeply devoted to EAA and IAC and our missions and objectives. She currently works as an account manager at Executive Jet Management in Cincinnati and before that, worked in the non-profit field as an executive assistant at the University of Cincinnati’s Economics Center.

Her volunteer work in IAC has also been wide-ranging and extensive. Our secretary for two years and currently our achievement awards chair and website curator, she also served as contest director for infrastructure at the 27th World Aerobatic Championships in Texas in 2013. She was secretary for IAC Chapter 34 in Ohio for ten years and holds a private pilot’s license for both single-engine aircraft and gliders. She has helped organize her local chapter’s annual aerobatic competition for many years.

While Lorrie will not be moving to Oshkosh, our plan is to have her on-site in Oshkosh at least one week out of the month. The remainder of the time will be spent in her home office and she will be available during office hours at all times. I am delighted Lorrie is joining our staff.

Mike Heuer, IAC President
