Each year Pilots from around the globe gather for the Pilot International Annual Convention & Leadership Conference to participate in valuable leadership training seminars, informative workshops and fundraising events for the Pilot International Founders Fund. This year’s special guest speakers included author, artist and philanthropist Suzy Toronto and author and non-profit teamwork and leadership expert Dr. Kathleen Sturgis.
Now in its 92nd year, Pilot International is an international volunteer service organization. Home to over 8,000 members in almost 400 clubs and parent organization of Anchor Clubs with over 8,000 youth members in more than 300 clubs, Pilots are committed to “Do More, Care More and Be More” for their communities every day. Pilots provide financial and hands-on support for numerous national and local initiatives in keeping with the organization’s “ABCs” – Anchor Clubs [Youth Development & Leadership], Brain Safety & Fitness and Caring for Families in Times of Need. In addition to its many community-based activities, Pilot International created and maintains the BrainMinders family of Brain Safety initiatives, the “Think H.A.P.P.Y. Be H.A.P.P.Y.
