« on: December 02, 2018, 07:22:00 am »
Please help me to congratulate ZOB's newest Training Administrator, Kyle Williams. Kyle joined ZOB more than two years ago as an Observer, and has progressed through the ranks to an Instructor. By assuming his new responsibilities, he will look forward to gain even more experience by leading our training department to new, awesome things! I look forward to his progress!

I'm also glad to announce that we have also found a new Events Coordinator, Jonathan Johnson! Johnathan has been a longstanding member in our community and is looking forward to put more events on the table. Congrats, Johnathan!

With Jonathan's and Kyle's promotions, ZOB now has a full, active ARTCC staff again. I'm looking forward to great things for the future of ZOB!
