The Cessna 150-152 FLy-In Foundation

The Cessna 150-152 Fly-In (AKA the Confab in the Corn) has grown from a simple gathering to an annual event requiring months of time and effort to organize and run. The Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation was formed in 2009, with its sole purpose to organize, plan, and run the annual Cessna 150-152 Fly-In.

The Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation is registered in the state of Illinois under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code as a non-profit charitable organization. All donations to the Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation are tax deductable.

Although the Foundation is a non-profit organization, that does not mean the Foundation has to operate at a loss, or have zero dollars in the bank at the end of the year. Just like any other business, the Foundation can have a running profit - indeed, it must have a running profit in order to remain a viable and growing concern. In a company run for profit, the profits are usually divided up among the owners. There are no owners of the Foundation and all profits are put towards future events or other matters that further the Foundation's goals. Foundation Directors and Officers are unpaid volunteers. They pay their own way to all Foundation events, meetings, and the Fly-In.

Membership

Membership in the Cessna 150-152 Fly In Foundation is available to anyone interested in the Cessna 150-152 and the Confab in the Corn.

 

There are three levels of Membership in the Cessna 150-152 Fly-In Foundation.

 

Member

  • Individuals that have attended a Cessna 150-152 Fly-In.

Anyone that has ever attended the Fly-In are members of the Foundation. 

If you have not attended the most recent Fly-In, or are delinquent in your dues, you fall to the Inactive Member list.

After paying their annual dues, Active Members are current for that calendar year, and until the beginning of the following Cessna 150-152 Fly-In. Annual dues in the Foundation is $10.00 per year, and are included in the Registration cost for the Cessna 150-152 Fly-In, or may be purchased separately in the Foundation Store.

Voting Member

  • Active Members that have attended the Cessna 150-152 Fly In at least once in the last three years.

Members that have attended the Confab in the past usually attend another in the future, and have a vested interest in the Foundation and the Cessna 150-152 Fly In. They are given voting rights in the Foundation. We realize that members can't attend the Confab every year. There may be issues with work, lack of funds, bad weather, or broken airplanes. Therefore, you only have to attend the Confab at least once every three years to maintain your standing as a voting member. Voting Members must be current dues paying members to exercise their vote.

Permanent Voting Member

  • Royson and Lori Parsons

  • Current members of the Foundation Board of Directors

  • Past members of the Foundation Board of Directors

  • Manager of the Clinton, Iowa airport

  • Founding Donors (Those who donated to the Foundation prior to June 1, 2010)

Dues paying members that have volunteered their time to serve on the Board of Directors, as well as our founders, the Manager of the Clinton airport, and our Founding Donors have earned the right to become Permanent Voting Members. Lifetime members of the Cessna 150-152 Club (prior to Dec 31, 2010) have also been awarded Permanent Voting Member status. Permanent Voting Members must be current dues paying members to exercise their vote.

ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

The date for the annual meeting of the membership is determined by the Board of Directors.
