Introduction: New Management Committee

by Gareth Lau


Posted on Aug. 29, 2018

Irish Aviation Students’ Association is proud to introduce the new management committee for 2018 to 2019, effective September 1st. IASA is a student lead initiative which has been operating for over three years now, promoting career opportunities for students of all backgrounds and interests, within the aviation industry. To date we have hosted a number of successful conferences and events to help students learn about the industry and develop their personal network. Our key aim is to bridge the gap between the aviation industry and aviation passionate students.

I would like to congratulate my colleagues being elected as a part of the management committee 2018/19. I really look forward to working closely with the entire committee on various events happening throughout the year.  I would like to give a special thank you to the previous management committee members, Bridget Corry, Ross Quinless and Shane Gorman, Andreea Slabutu and Cian McHugh for their significant contributions and dedication from the beginning of their time with IASA which goes above and beyond the call of duty. I wish all the very best of luck with their future endeavours. – Gareth Lau

Don’t forget that we are hosting Ireland’s first Aviation Career Expo on September 19th from 10:00 – 16:00 in the Crowne Plaza, Northwood, Santry. You can meet us on the day and we can have a chat.
