ACC has a successful trip to 87th Annual AAAE Conference
ACC
ACC was well represented at last week’s 87th Annual AAAE Conference in Philadelphia. Many ACC members and non-members alike stopped by the ACC booth to discuss industry trends and pick-up a copy of the recently released 2015 membership directory. Additionally, ACC staff had the opportunity to visit members on the exhibit floor to hear about new products and projects.

The annual ACC/AAAE Leadership breakfast was a resounding success with nearly 100 participants. AAAE Chair Randy Berg, Salt Lake City International Airport, and ACC Chair Carol Lurie, VHB, lead discussions on the future of the industry that resulted in numerous Twitter posts.

ACC members and staff also participated in a number of the concurrent sessions. Matt Griffin, ACC’s Director of Regulatory Affairs and Education, participated on a panel of trade association representatives discussing the regulatory challenges at General Aviation airports.

Thanks to everyone who dropped by the ACC booth!
