Longmuir, who had been at the helm only since last June, resigned effective April 1, along with Bob Warren, executive vice president and chief operating officer. In a statement issued last week, Longmuir cited a "difference in vision for leadership" in her departure from the association, and said she was "proud of the progress I made at NBAA as president and CEO." The statement cited Longmuir's work on securing access to restricted airspace for GA aircraft as her "signature effort." Meanwhile, two veteran staffers who had left the week before have returned to their positions -- Bob Blouin, senior vice president, operations, and Cassandra Bosco, senior manager, media relations. Their departure apparently brought things to a head in the upper ranks of the organization, leading to the decision that instead Longmuir and Warren should be replaced. Blouin has been with the NBAA since 1997, and Bosco since 1988. "This is a time of transition for our organization," Baldwin said Monday, "but we have great bench strength and talent within our staff, and a long tradition of effectiveness in Washington. We know that those elements will remain in place as we move forward ... It's a new week, and the mood is positive and hopeful."
