ALPA Education Committee Hits Triple with ACE Clubs

The student-led ALPA ACE Clubs are well represented as the spring semester begins at the University of North Dakota (UND) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical Universities– (ERAU) Daytona Beach and Prescott campuses. Last week, close to a dozen ALPA Education Committee pilot volunteers kicked off the 2013 spring semester with ACE Club presentations to the aviation students at the schools.

Collectively, over 160 students attended the three universities’ evening events. The presentations for the ACE Clubs ranged from “Excelling on the HR Portion of Your Interview” at UND to “Go/No Go Decision Making” at ERAU-Daytona, and “How to Get Hired at Delta” at ERAU-Prescott. ALPA pilots visiting UND also stopped into classrooms during the day to share stories with students, while the ALPA booth at ERAU-Daytona was positioned next to the College of Aviation at the activities fair to promote ALPA and the ACE Club.

The ACE Club in Daytona is in its third year and continually proves to be a successful club. The UND and ERAU-Prescott ACE Clubs budded only last year, with aviation students showing great interest and participation, and the clubs continue to thrive.
