ADF names Jake Zelman, 2017 Visionary Award winner

The Board Members of ADF have selected Jake Zelman as the 2017 Visionary Award Winner.

This decision was based on Jake’s contribution to our organization and his passion to promote our profession.  
As the current Vice President, Information/Technology, Jake has brought our Web site up to date, continuously refining it, and made our social channels an avenue for our invaluable members to communicate.  Additionally, Jake’s recent video-documentary, 9/11: Voices of the Aircraft Dispatchers, has memorialized the actions of aircraft dispatchers on one of the darkest days in history.

Congratulations, Jake!
