It's been a tough year plus for ATC and all the branches within it. Moving forward from here is going to take hard choices, detailed evaluation, and the will to do what needs to be done to carry our organization forward from here. As a long-time Detour staff member and veteran of ConComm and Operations, as well as an ATC member who has been regularly attending the board meetings for several years, I am in a solid position to do these things. My roles in Detour's staff have involved detailed organizational skills and evaluation to improve processes as well as decision making, and by attending the meetings I've kept myself well informed on topics that will be in front of the board. I am aware of the difficulties ahead and am prepared to confront them. If elected, I will make the decisions that will ensure not only that ATC and all its component branches are able to push through the remainder of this difficult time, but that they come through strong and ready to serve our community going forward. Thank you.

Hi, I am Amy Johnson. I am running for the Member at Large position on the ATC board. I have been a part of Anime Detour for over 10 years working for the Safety Department as a Sub-head for much of that time. I have been attending the virtual ATC board meetings for almost a year and feel I will be a valuable addition to the board. In my careers, I have had experience dealing with high stress situations and can use that experience to handle the wide range of situations that can occur within the organization. I have also had experience being a member of the board of other organizations including serving as the President of the Board of the local Chief Petty Officer’s Association which has 90 members. I have had experience with the rules of order that experience will be advantageous should I be elected.
