Making connections — ACC is on the move
ACC
My first ACC conference was way back in the early 1990s where many of the FAA’s key decision makers and regional representatives gathered with the consultant community in Washington D.C. It was a convergence of airport industry professionals who together were focused on airport development issues. I was struck by how open and candid everyone was talking about new regulations and innovations, along with recent challenges and possible solutions. It seemed fitting to have the meeting in our nation’s capital, and it was made all the more powerful with FAA representatives around the country actively participating in the conversation.

I soon learned that ACC hosted its annual conference in wonderful locations alternatively on the east and west coasts. This continental shift provided plenty of chances for ACC members to hear different perspectives while enjoying the outdoors, including golfing, fishing or doing community service. The networking opportunities directly lead to two job wins for my firm!

The flagship technical conference – the Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium – was held in Denver and other cities in the middle of the country. ACC collaborates with AAAE to host this premier airport conference on airport development. It is the place to go to learn about cutting edge issues and solutions.

And then there are the ACC courses taught around the country – pavement design and construction in Seattle, Memphis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Boston, Fort Worth, Atlanta and Washington DC. Or the Project Delivery Workshop in Arlington, VA, Indianapolis, San Diego and Ft. Lauderdale. Not to mention the Airport Planning and NEPA Workshops in San Antonio, Seattle, Kansas City and Long Beach. ACC’s reach is long and important.

ACC is on the move – this time to our counterparts across the pond. I am pleased to be participating in ACC’s joint conference in London with the British Aviation Group (BAG). To be held December 2 and 3 in a fabulous location overlooking Tower Bridge, this conference solidifies ACC as a global player. Thanks in great part to our globalization initiative plus joint networking with BAG at Passenger Terminal World events, we are looking forward to this new international chapter in ACC’s playbook.

Come one, come all - join me in Newport Beach for the ACC Annual Conference or in London for the Global Business Summit. You won’t be sorry.

Cheers
Carol
