Furthermore, I would like to thank outgoing trustees
Mary-Ellen Jones, who is a trustee at Airlink; Rod Sheridan,
who ran our Fundraising Committee; and Damon D'Agostino,
who, aside from being a past Foundation chair, was also key
in developing ISTAT U to where it is today. We are grateful for
their time and dedication during their terms, and I wish them
very well in their day jobs!
Incoming trustees are Jean Stein and Richard Goodhead.
Welcome aboard! Richard has also taken over my previous
role as chair of the Communication and Promotion Committee.
I was part of the ISTAT Board from 2005-2011, during
which my contributions focused on developing the "I" in
ISTAT, initially in developing the European conferences like
Hamburg and Monte Carlo that significantly helped to increase
European membership. Later, I focused on developing the Asia
conference, which started in 2007 when we had operating
lease classes in Shanghai until that group was big enough to
have our first true China conference in Beijing in 2011.
Thereafter, I joined the Foundation's Scholarship
Committee and became chair of the committee in 2014. When
Andy LaStella took over the helm of the committee in 2017,
dollars granted to international students had grown from
US$70,000 to US$200,000. The number of grants to non-U.S.
university students grew from 24-58%, and the number of
scholarship recipients rose from 23 to 65.
Now, as Foundation chair, I would again like to put focus
on the "I." Other areas for developing the Foundation further
will be 1) an enhanced international reach, in particular in

Africa, Asia and Latin America; 2) ESG; and 3) seeking new
areas to work together with foundations outside of aviation
with similar objectives.
Our core programs relate to:
1.	 Developing industry talent with two programs:
Scholarships (chaired by Andy LaStella) and ISTAT
U (chaired by Murrae Ross-Eskell). Furthermore,
we have the internship program, also chaired by
Murrae Ross-Eskell.
2.	 Grants (chaired by Sigthor Einarsson), providing
support to museums and educational institutions
that promote the advancement of the commercial
aviation industry.
3.	 Humanitarian Aid (chaired by David Swan),
with basically two streams: Airlink supporting
communities in crisis, and direct funding to noncrisis related humanitarian initiatives that have an
aviation connection.
Other important initiatives include 1) the Ambassador
Program, where ISTAT members serve as a liaison with
universities in support of the Foundation's programs for
university students; 2) the ISTAT Foundation Alumni Network;
and 3) the Mentorship Program - all led by Kristen
Chmielewski, who also chairs our Governance Committee.
I am looking forward to keeping you updated on these
developments, and many thanks for your continued support.
Stay safe and healthy!
