Associate member benefits

In the AOA manual it says an associate member may "participate in insurances". Does this mean they get the loss of licence insurance like a full member?

There is no point writing to the AOA office, they NEVER respond, despite the fact that they have paid staff!

If you can be an associate member and not have to follow CC, can be the person on the other side of the negotiating table, pay a fraction of the fees and still get loss of licence insurance, that would be an amazing deal.

I would like to become an associate member if that is in fact the deal.

I think he/she has a point.
The fact that our DFO can get access to members only benefits is hilarious.
I'm sure he (and the rest of management Assoc A members) can take the extra money they get for screwing pilots and get their own insurance.

You can get kicked out of the AOA for taking a training position or working a G, but you can be an associate member and be the one cutting our pay and benefits. How does that work? Need a rule change I think. Either you're a full member or you're out.

If my fees are helping subsidize insurance for the DFO that will really p### me off!

It's more likely that you aren't a member or are a very new member if you haven't experienced writing to the AOA and never getting a reply.

I've written numerous letters and received replies ranging from a few hours to a week. Whilst the premise of xwldgs argument is worthy of debate the statement that the office never responds is bullsh1t.

Yep, wrote to the AOA a while ago and received a reply inside 24hours with the data I requested.

That's good to hear they have radically changed then, up until recently they wouldn't reply.

This thread is about the guy trying to slash our pay and benefits, but still being allowed to be an associate member. I guess you guys are totally fine with that though because the AOA responds to emails quicker these days.

Seriously, how on earth can he be allowed to be any kind of AOA member? You couldn't be any more against us at the moment.
