A Message from President Sam Longo
Hello fellow AME’s across Canada.
Since my start as president in January of 2019 my goal has been to make some needed changes to CFAMEA as we know it. Many have said that we needed a truly national AME Association. CFAMEA has filled that role admirably for some time but we need more. Our regional associations do a stellar job of promoting and mentoring our trade but our combined voice has often been fragmented and unheard.
The time for change is upon us. As of Oct. 6 2019 our name has changed with Industry Canada and we are now AMEC/TEAC Aircraft Maintenance Engineers of Canada / Techniciens D’Entretien D’Aeronefs du Canada. We will keep our regional chapters and their inherent strengths but will now have a more National focus to promote our trade. Work has already been done. We have a new Logo and are scheduled to standardize dues to $70 by the end of 2020.
Upcoming goals are to build a new website to showcase our new vision and streamline membership. Your regional affiliation will always be included in your membership so we are hoping it will be a win/win situation.
Most importantly we need to boost our membership and transform CFAMEA into the new AMEC/TEAC so that our trade and our members have the strongest voice ever to Promote and Mentor our livelihood, now and into the future.
Please get involved and watch for the changes on our website.
Very Best Regards
