WASHINGTON — The Associated Air Balance Council (AABC) installed new officers and directors for 2020-2022 during its 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting, which coincided with 55th anniversary of the organization’s founding.

Since 1965, AABC has maintained stringent membership requirements that ensure its members’ independence, objectivity, integrity, and technical expertise.
