Making Connections
ACC
What I did this Summer (and Fall)
As I sit on my deck watching the flowers that have bloomed after a very long winter and enjoying a sun set over the horizon, I eagerly await a jam-packed Summer and Fall. I expect that the conferences and events hosted by ACC will round out a busy work schedule in the coming months. ACC has a robust set of training sessions and professional development opportunities that will boost one's PDUs and enhance our service offerings to our clients.

  • There are two timely webinars in the pipeline: Changes to Runway and Taxiway Painting Procedures (July 5/12:30 EDT) - an easy way to make sure to be up to speed on the latest standards and practices. Then a webinar on How Cost Estimating and Scheduling Can Be A "Critical Link" (June 22/1:00 EDT). Another example of how ACC helps with the business of consulting and provides skills training to our members.

  • I am particularly excited about the ACC/TSA Security Capabilities Workshop (June 16 - 18 in Arlington VA). Held as a standalone event, with face-to-face roundtables with representatives from the TSA and other DHS agencies, there will be great discussions and dialogue with the over 200 people that are expected to attend.

  • The ACC Airports Technical Workshop (ATW) (June 16-17) will be held in a new DC location near Union Station. This refreshed conference, planned in collaboration with the FAA, features briefings on critical updated ACs and requirements that will affect airport planning, engineering and permitting. Other federal agencies have also been invited to weigh in.

  • Finally a timely and relevant event - the ACC/AAAE Airport Technologies Workshop (August 26 in Salt Lake City) will provide insights to airport decision makers and managers into the myriad ways IT is changing the way airports function and serve the traveling public.


  • Here's to raising a glass with my airport colleagues at the November Annual Conference in Newport Beach, CA (November 9-11) and looking back at all the opportunities for learning and networking from the Summer and Fall.
