PIONAIRS ANNUAL MEETING

Our Annual Members Meeting was one for the books!


Our original Spring Annual Members Meeting (AMM) was cancelled due to Covid-19. Fortunately, the Federal Office of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada granted us an extension and October 22 was selected as the new date.


Covid-19 imposed gathering size restrictions that first limited us to 50 participants, then 10, and a week before the AMM, a limit of 5. A very big THANK YOU to all you members who submitted your proxies. These were critical this year and you did a great job!

Pionairs are resilient and determined! Our AMM took place on October 22nd, as planned, and you’ll be able to view it on our website shortly. We need a little time to translate and prepare it for you along with presentations from the President, Treasurer, Air Canada Global Benefits, Air Canada Employee Travel and Recognition, Air Canada Life Insurance and Johnson Insurance.


The part we all missed with this unique AMM was the pleasure of seeing fellow Pionairs and catching up. With that in mind, we encourage everyone to contact someone you haven’t seen recently and catch up via phone, email, or video conference. We can be Physically Distanced AND Socially Connected.

Wishing you all good health and safe passage through this pandemic.


Barry Hoeppner

President

The Air Canada Pionairs organization is part of a large family that shares a common bond and so much history. We have a love of the airline industry, but what we treasure most is the many lifelong friendships we have made over the years.
