Alan Metzler Steps Away from Board

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The RAF directors met in person in January, and reluctantly accepted Alan Metzler’s request to step away from the Board and his position as Secretary to devote more time to his growing family and business in Pennsylvania.

Alan joined the RAF board in 2013, and served one year as RAF president. Both he and his wife Jill contributed a great deal toward the RAF mission. The Metzler family co-hosted the successful RAF Mini Education Conference in 2017 and the “Keystone Connection” RAF bi-annual conference in 2018, and opened their Pennsylvania hangar as the beautiful setting for a barbecue for the attendees.

“We have enjoyed the activities and met so many new friends through RAF we will cherish forever,” Alan said. “We plan to stay involved at a lesser pace in order to spend more time with grandchildren and mentoring our sons in the family business,” he added.

“The RAF is a better organization because of Alan and Jill’s contributions. We will continue to benefit from their interest in the RAF and their passion for what we do,” Chairman John McKenna said.
