Récipiendaire 2020: David Sprague de Toronto, ON
“In recognition for your exceptional service to the Canadian Owners and Pilots Association”
From the Chairman of the Board, Bill Mahoney: Dave Sprague is the President of the Buttonville Flying Club, involved in COPA Flight 44. He not volunteers his time with that organization, but he also volunteers his time with other organizations and other volunteer groups. He is very involved with the Sailing Association of Canada. He is quick to volunteer and offer his assistance when asked. When we conferred the search committee back in January of this year, Dave offered to assist, he is an executive search consultant and he offered to help our search committee with the daunting task of finding a new CEO for COPA. It was with his assistance, guidance, and direction that we were able to conduct a very rigorous and thorough search and come up with what I think is an outstanding candidate. I would like to recognize that and thank Dave for his volunteer efforts, not only with COPA but with other organizations. He goes above and beyond so it is with deep gratitude and appreciation that I recognize you for your assistance and present you with the Chairman’s award for 2020.
