General Members Assembly, May 28, 2020

The General Members’ Assembly (GMA) of the NAG took place on Thursday May 28th.  This GMA was different than usual because it took place online and we as the NAG team consider contact with our members and networking for members as very important. Happiness always yields a return against a loss. We have received much more feedback and good ideas via the chat and polls than during a regular General Members Assembly.

We are very happy with the result and are going to process it quickly. After the formal part of the General Members Assembly, three prominent guest speakers gave a short presentation about their vision of the current situation:


  • Jan Hendrik Dronkers, Director-General of Aviation and Maritime Affairs and also Deputy Secretary-General at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management.
  • Watch his video here.


  • Maarten Koopmans, VP Component Services at KLM Engineering & Maintenance. These video’s will be published online next week.

For the subsequent virtual network drink, we had sent all members a small package with some refreshments. The meeting ended with a toast to the future and a pub quiz with Roland Grimm (BOM) as the winner. Fortunately we were able to see each other virtually during the online network drink. On December 10th we hope to organize the next ALV, live at KMWE. We similarly count on a lot of feedback and good ideas from our members regarding this GMA.  A special thanks goes out to World of Minds for facilitating this online meeting.
