July 7, 2017 // This Week’s Notebook: Member in Need; Update Your Contact Information; and Seminar Dates
NATCA Member in Need: Justin Mendelson, Columbia Metropolitan (CAE)
Justin Mendelson has been with the Federal Aviation Administration for the past five and a half years and has been a supporter and member of NATCA since arriving at his first facility in February of 2012. Unfortunately, in January of 2017, he began having health issues that have required multiple surgeries and hospitalizations in the recent months. Justin has now been out of work since the beginning of May of 2017, and has exhausted all available, non-advanced leave. Recently, Justin was approved for the Voluntary Leave Transfer Program (VLTP). If you are able, you may submit donations through the online VLTP Intranet site.
