Two new board members have recently been voted in by Women in Aviation International members at the organisation's 30th annual membership meeting held in Long Beach, California.
Jeppesen industry relations manager Rhonda Larance has joined the board of Women in Aviation International.

Members of Women in Aviation International have voted Rhonda Larance and Shannon Weidekamp to the board. Each will serve a three-year term.

Larance is industry relations manager for Jeppesen, a Boeing Company, in Englewood, Colorado. With more than 15 years of experience managing global aviation marketing teams, Rhonda has held numerous leadership positions at Jeppesen since she joined the company in 1981.
