Aviation Maintenance Council (CAMC) is pleased to announce the
appointment of Robert Donald as CAMC's Executive Director effective
January 1, 2008.

Donald has more than 20 years' experience in the areas of international
aviation, national and international transactions, and competition law.
He is the former General Counsel of the International Air Transport
Association (IATA) and spent ten years with the IATA legal departments
in Geneva and Montreal. During that time he has worked with all
segments of the aviation/aerospace industry, including airlines,
airframe and engine manufacturers, airport operators, freight
forwarders, governments, regulators and academics. He has been a
delegate to numerous Diplomatic Conferences, including the Conference
that resulted in the Montreal Convention 1999.

He returned to private practice in 2004 and is Counsel to Fraser Milner
Casgrain, one of Canada's leading national law firms. Before joining
IATA Robert spent 10 years in private practice as a partner in a
Montreal law firm. He received his degree in law from McGill
University, a BA from Concordia University, and a postgraduate diploma
in European Union competition law from King's College in London,
England.

In his comments about the industry and CAMC's role in it, Mr. Donald
stated that he is passionate about education and the aviation/aerospace
industry. CAMC is a unique organization that combines both. He said,
"We read every day about the immanent and, in some cases actual, labour
shortages in Canada. Many corporations and industries are discussing
the issue but it will be exciting to lead an organization that is
actually developing and implementing solutions for its members, in an
industry that is crucial for Canada and Canadians."

The Canadian Aviation Maintenance Council (CAMC) is a not-for-profit
sector council that represents and assists Canada's aviation and
aerospace industry with its human-resource strategy, issues and
solutions. With the participation of industry members, CAMC develops
and publishes National Occupational Standards with supporting Logbooks
(for professional certification) and Curricula (for post-secondary
training organizations). CAMC promotes safety, professionalism and
standardization through national communication with industry; Human
Factors and Safety Management Systems training; individual
certification in 24 occupations; and accreditation of training
organization programs.
