New Representative for the Gliding specialty

 

altThe (now ex-) Representative of the Gliding Section, Gigi Giardino, was elected to the National Board as the member for the STS (Technical Specialty) of gliding. His election to this office is incompatible with that of his post as a Director of the Aero Club Torino, thus for all practical purposes, his status as the Gliding Specialty Representative was consequently revoked. On 31st October, in second convocation, a Meeting of the Gliding Section was held to appoint a new representative Councellor for the specialty. There were two candidates, Angelo Albano and Sergio Cometto , and 24 members entitled to vote.

Voting results:

- Angelo Albano 9 votes

- Sergio Cometto 15 votes.

Sergio Cometto is therefore duly elected as the Representative Councellor for the Gliding Specialty. He will remain in office until the natural expiry of the current Board of Directors. Compliments to the newly elected councellor, and best wishes in the position from the Board.
