VATUSA Has a New Events Manager
« on: April 16, 2021, 08:04:46 AM »
Please join me in congratulating Brandon Wening on being selected as VATUSA's Events Manager!  Brandon has been ZDV's Air Traffic Manager since December 2019.  He also served as ZFW's Training Administrator and ZDV's Deputy Air Traffic Manager.

In an era of elevated traffic levels and controller participation and in the absence of a Division Events Manager on staff, Brandon led a grassroots initiative to make a collaborative FNO schedule; the ARTCCs worked together and conducted an efficient FNO bid that lasted all of 5 hours!  This process was employed in our just completed multi-facility FNO bid as well.

Brandon's initiative and drive gives me confidence that he is the right person to lead our events department.

Congratulations!!
