I have known Ham for over 8 years. From my early days in NATCA as a FACREP at BFL, until today as an area rep for Los Angeles Arrivals at SCT, Ham has demonstrated lots of leadership qualities. The two that stand out the most and are incredibly important for our UNION are mentorship and legislative activism. Ham has always been a phone call away, whatever issue I had or advice I needed, I knew I could pick up the phone and he would answer and give me counsel. When it comes to legislative activism, I find it hard to find someone as impassioned as Ham. As RVP, he has empowered incredibly talented people such as Trisha Pesiri and Noel Kingston to bring our region to where it is now, a national legislative powerhouse. As we move forward, we are going to depend more and more on our legislative arm to bring about the change to our funding structure that the NEB recommends. In light of that, I see no better leader for our region than Ham Ghaffari, a proven legislative activist and mentor.
