In less than two weeks, NATA will host its first Aviation Business & Legislative Conference in the Washington, D.C. area. This event is a rebrand and refocus of our FBO Leadership Conference that was held in previous years. The Aviation Business & Legislative Conference provides value and business and industry advice to all of our members. In addition, it affords our members from each constituency an opportunity to connect with one another.
We are looking forward to a full schedule of events that week in addition to the conference programming, including sessions on the business aviation outlook, generational leadership, disaster recovery and assistance and new healthcare laws as well as sessions providing information on the latest regulatory and legislative issues from the TSA, FAA and key senior Capitol Hill staff. Also included with the conference are the Industry Excellence Awards Dinner on Monday night and the Congressional Reception on Tuesday evening.
One of the most important aspects of this event is the unique opportunity to connect directly with your Members of Congress at the Congressional Reception on Tuesday evening at the US Capitol. NATA represents the interests of our members on Capitol Hill every day but, in order to heighten our impact, we need your help to put a face to the industry. Visiting with your representatives helps demonstrate the vital importance of your business to your community as well as to the Nation’s economy.
In addition, NATA will hold its Spring Committee Meetings on Wednesday following the conference. This is another important opportunity for our members to assist NATA in shaping the future of our association and to help bring important issues to the forefront of our agenda. Our committee members have always played a fundamental role in developing and testing products and training programs, setting the legislative and regulatory agenda, and providing benchmarks and support for other members. We look forward to seeing our committee members and, as always, our members are invited to attend the committee meetings as guests.
If you have not already done so, please register to attend. We appreciate your support and help in making your voice heard in Washington.
