William W Church, 252 (Lord Beaverbrook) Wing, Fredericton, NB, in recognition of his loyal and dedicated
47 years of service since joining the Association in1954. During this period, Bill held almost every executive
position in the Atlantic Region, including Chairman of the 1982 National Convention Committee in Fredericton,
President, Atlantic Group 1988-90, Regional Director Eastern 1990-93 and recently President, Atlantic Group, again, from 1996 -98. In addition, he has been most supportive of the Association’s interest in the Air Cadet organization during the 20 plus years since his retirement from the RCAF. Of special interest to me, he volunteered his expertise as a financial consultant to the Association’s NHQ, bringing state-of-the-art accounting procedures into effect and focusing much needed oversight to the NEC on the Association’s ongoing financial situation. There can be no doubt that his skill, enthusiasm, inspiration, direction and leadership in Association activities
has been above the ordinary.
