Unfortunately, there will be no Whirly-Girls events taking place physically in New Orleans this year. But please join us on our virtual events!
What events are the Whirly-Girls hosting this spring?
Because HAI HELI-EXPO has been cancelled this year, we are hosting a virtual awards ceremony and hovering on Saturday March 20, 2021 at 6:00 pm Central Standard Time.
This will be our opportunity to celebrate the women who are receiving the wide range of scholarships offered by the Whirly-Girls and our generous sponsors. It will also be a time for our annual gathering, or “hovering,” where members fill us in on the events of the last year.
We will also be holding our annual Silent Auction virtually. Proceeds from this event support the Whirly-Girls scholarship fund.
Why was HAI HELI-EXPO 2021 cancelled?
Due to COVID concerns, Helicopter Associate International (HAI) decided to cancel their annual helicopter expo. You can read their statement here.
Will there be a silent auction?
Yes indeed! The annual silent auction is a terrific fundraiser. We will have more information about the auction soon — stay tuned!
What about the annual business meeting and our elections?
The annual business meeting was virtual this year and took place online on Saturday, March 6.
Our meeting minutes will be posted soon.
While this is a challenging period, we look forward to seeing you virtually this year and celebrating the achievements of our members.
And we are looking forward to our next full gathering at HAI HELI-EXPO in Dallas in 2022.
