L&T staff report

The Mid-America Air Museum Foundation Board recently underwent a restructure and expansion.

The MAAM  Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, has recently expanded its board in order to be able to:

• support the undertakings of the Mid-America  Air Museum as a public historical  museum.

• enhance the image and quality of life in Liberal and the mid-region through facilitating the development of displays and  exhibits illustrating the importance of flight,  air  transportation  and aviation,  and in portraying the understanding of its importance in our  society;

• undertake educational and other programs and  activities designed to further the MAAM Foundation’s vision and mission,  whether on its own or in conjunction with other educational institutions; and,

• solicit and receive moneys and property, both  real and personal, the value of and/or earnings from which may be used for the  furtherance of development and maintaining funding necessary to accomplish the  objects and purposes of the MAAM  Foundation.

The MAAM Foundation members possess degree programs from 19 universities and collectively have lived in the Liberal community for more than 450 years. With this strength of community involvement, the Board is positioned to learn from local residents on development of future projects for the Mid-America Air Museum.

Bill Lyddon, owner of Lyddon Aero Center, is the president of the MAAM Foundation Board, and Don Parsons is the vice president.

The foundation now has a total of 22 members.

Three of those members were a part of the original Foundation Board and will provide insight and expertise to the foundation, however, they have chosen not to exercise voting privileges.

Jim Bert, the Executive Director of the Mid-America Air Museum, will also participate with the Foundation in a non-voting fashion.
