2018 Board of Directors Election
SBEA Annual Board of Directors Election
Voting is one of the most important responsibilities you have not only as a U.S. citizen but also as a member of an association. It’s your chance to select leaders who understand serving on the Board offers an opportunity to play a direct role in determining an organization’s overall direction and impact. The Spirit Boeing Employees’ Association will hold its annual Election of Directors November 5 – 9. 2 positions on the Board of Directors will be filled in the election. Each winning candidate will serve a 3 year term. The ballots will be delivered to your Spirit mail stop by Nov. 5. We want to remind and urge all Spirit and Boeing members to vote and return your completed ballot no later than Friday November 9.
I have been on the Board in the past and love helping the membership grow. I believe I can help make the right decisions to improve on what we already have and what is to come. I have been a SBEA member for 31 years.
Qualifications: Previous Board Member
I want to be on the Board of Directors because I want to share the holidays of other diverse cultures in the SBEA community to the same people we work side-by-side with everyday. I want to demonstrate how people from different experiences in life can find different solutions to solve problems. I find the efforts of the Spirit Aerosystems Global Diversity group sponsored at corporate level too far removed and unrelatable to the everyday employee.

Working to save money, solicit discounts, improve our events and long range planning for SBEA.

Jack Smith Shoe Repair (shoe shine, coats, purses etc.) will pick up on Mondays, and they will quote us a price to do the work at that time. We will call the member and tell them the price and they must come and pay before the work is done. Then they will be back in about 1 week. Welch Cleaners members will drop off and pick up will be on Mondays & Thursdays. You must drop your items off at our Main SBEA Store location and pick up will be the same place.
