WASHINGTON, DC, MAY 5, 2020 – National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) President and CEO Ed Bolen today announced a significant reduction to the organization’s workforce, both to address challenges raised by the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, and to retain a sharp focus on advocacy, strategic communications, operational support, the production of NBAA-BACE and other events, and other priorities for the association and industry.
“As we know, the COVID-19 pandemic is challenging organizations of every kind, and NBAA is certainly not immune to those challenges,” Bolen said. “We are working to address the challenge by looking at all aspects of our business, including significant reductions to our workforce, consistent with what we are seeing in the aviation community and beyond. This difficult but necessary step will ensure that we are strategically positioned to meet a rapidly changing series of demands, while also focusing on the initiatives essential to our members. The decisions we’re making have been among our most difficult ever, but I firmly believe they are appropriate to ensure NBAA, and business aviation, will thrive as we look to the future.”
