NGPA's strength comes from the incredible people who make up the organization. As pilots and aviation enthusiasts helping each other, volunteering exemplifies the spirit of NGPA more than anything else. We can always use a hand, and volunteering is a great way to meet people and make new friends.

Scott Konzem is proud to serve as the Vice Chair of the Board of Directors for the NGPA, the worldwide LGBTQ aviation community. Prior to this role, Scott served as Chair of the Development Committee for three years where he directed individual donor fundraising for the organization. He also serves as the NGPA Military Liaison, where his goal is to facilitate greater communication and cooperation between Department of Defense entities and the NGPA.
In Scott's day job, he serves as a Pilot in the U.S. Air Force. Scott earned his commission and BS in English in 2004 from the U.S. Air Force Academy and since then has earned his MBA, MS in International Relations (Troy University) and MA in National Security and Strategic Studies (U.S. Naval War College).
