The American Aviation Historical Society, one of the oldest continuously functioning aviation historical societies in the United States, is looking to separate our current leadership role into TWO positions; narrowing the job scope of our President role to just the oversight and leadership of the organization activities, while allowing the other job functions currently managed by the President - outreach, managing organized events and social media tasks, to be handled by a different person.
AAHS is a small but well funded organization with a small core of dedicated volunteers who manage daily tasks in the Huntington Beach office. We have members all over the United States, and the world, and our new leader will get to continue many exciting new projects we've introduced to keep us viable in this all-digital world. The AAHS President normally is present at the office just once a week, and hosts Board of Director meetings once a quarter, and office staff meetings as needed.
We look to find someone passionate about Americas' aviation history, who understands the precious resource of ACCURATE history, and the necessity of its preservation for all to use.
The primary objective of the organization is the preservation and dissemination of the rich heritage of American aviation. The Society maintains an extensive collection of books, documents and photographs that are available to researchers and aviation enthusiasts on a wide variety of American aviation history.
AAHS has been in operation since 1956, collecting and preserving aviation photos and written material from members from all over the world. Over two million photos and the collection increases monthly! AAHS publishes a quarterly Journal, (continuously since 1956) regularly named one of the top 100 aviation publications in the US. Much of the image collection is in print form, and needs to be scanned and cataloged, without such action we cannot share them effectively with our members or the public.
