During this period, aside from our annual conferences, our association has embarked on a number of new initiatives such as our expanded presence at international events, a first-ever UAS for Emergency Services workshop, our greater focus on marketing our conference, our relationships with other organizations and government departments, and our new web site, to name just a few. Robert has been a key player and leader in all of these changes which ultimately represent greater value for our members. We also wish to recognize Robert’s current efforts leading the transition to our new staff and maintaining his role for the 2016 AUVSI pavilion. We wish him well in his future endeavours.
