Aeronautics Division Director John S. Penn announced that Henry M. "Hank" Rowan, President of Inductotherm Industries, Inc., of Rancocas, NJ, will be the luncheon speaker.

Throughout the day, aviation-related businesses will exhibit their products at the conference. The program will be capped by an aviation safety briefing from the Air Force and a tour of the new air traffic control tower at McGuire. Developing ties with educational institutions in order to introduce a new customer base to aviation will end the business portion of the program.
