ACC mourns passing of NASAO President and CEO Henry Ogrodzinski
ACC
The aviation industry is mourning the passing of National Association of State Aviation Officials (NASAO) President and CEO Henry Ogrodzinski. Henry joined NASAO in 1996 and also served alongside ACC President T.J. Schulz and Former ACC President Paula Hochstetler on the board of directors of the Aero Club of Washington. As part of his extensive career in aviation, he also served on boards for the National Aeronautic Association (NAA), the Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP), the Board of Nominations for the National Aviation Hall of Fame and the Selection Committee for the annual Collier Trophy.

"The aviation industry lost an advocate and friend in Henry O. He will truly be missed," said ACC President T.J. Schulz. "Henry was a consummate professional and effectively served his membership as president of NASAO. His extensive career in aviation made him extremely knowledgeable about federal aviation programs and he consistently offered solutions for the challenges facing the aviation system and its stakeholders. ACC extends our deepest sympathies to his family and the NASAO organization."
