A Whirly-Girls Ambassador will represent a region of the world and be a point of contact for Whirly-Girls in the area to gather together, find resources, support or networking. She may set up local aviation events, and help keep the local community connected to the organization as a whole.
Some of the biggest perks of this amazing group of women include networking, collaborating and career advices from fellow members. We want to make that process more accessible.
The Ambassador Program is currently being formulated and will debut at HAI HELI-EXPO in Dallas in March 2017. All questions and inquiries can be directed to WG#1771 Jessica Kanellos, VP of Membership.
One of the great benefits of the Whirly-Girls is the knowledge and camaraderie provided by our members! If you would like to learn more about a specific area of the helicopter industry, our members can help. Contact our VP of Membership, and she can help you get in contact with the right person.
