Former Directors

Jerome Morrison (Jerry) Cain
Director Emeritus

Thoughts After Retirement

When I raised my hand at the Montana Pilots Association’s (MPA) Board of Directors retreat in Bozeman in September of 2003, I had no idea what I was getting myself into!  I had been following the MPA’s Recreational Airstrip Committee for several years and watching them try to raise money. I even donated dogsled rides for their online auction.  To boost their fundraising effectiveness I suggested  they create an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 501(c) (3) Public Charity in order to solicit tax-deductible donations.
