8:00 – 9:00pm Program: ROC Renovations... Creating a better ROC experience with Andrew Moore, Interim Director of Aviation, Greater Rochester International Airport and Jennifer Hanrahan, Assistant Director

Some HLAA members commute regularly in and out of the Rochester airport. Others travel occasionally. Andrew Moore, Interim Director of Aviation, highlights the many improvements taking place at ROC as part of the Upstate Airport Economic Development and Revitalization Initiative. According to the ROC web site, "it should transform ROC inside and out to a 21st century airport complete with high tech smart terminal technology and a near barrier free environment to create a better passenger experience." Online reviews seem favorable. Chime in with your local flying story.

With ten years at ROC, Moore is responsible for managing a $36 million aviation facility which approximately 2.4 million passengers travel through annually. Jennifer Hanrahan, assistant director and marketing/public relations manager, is a 16 year veteran at ROC. She was promoted to Assistant Director in 2014, supervising airport staff in daily operations.

All HLAA programs are free. Anyone interested in hearing loss is welcome.

HLAA Rochester Chapter meetings are held in the Parish Hall at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, East Avenue at 25 Westminster Road, across from the George Eastman House Museum.
