A Message from WAMA's President:

Arif Ghouse, WAMA PresidentFellow members:

I am writing this message from the Airport Council International - North America Annual Conference in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX. A key topic here is FAA reauthorization. The reality is we will not see a comprehensive and full reauthorization bill signed into law before FAA programs and taxes expire at the end of September, 2017. The best we can hope for now is an extension to prevent the shutdown of non-essential FAA functions. As airports we would like to see a long-term extension (at least one year) to avoid problems with FAA funding of airport projects. But members of Congress are proposing anywhere from three, six to twelve-month extensions so we do not know where we will finally land.

You recently received an email message about the open Board positions for 2018. Thank you for your nominations.  Please keep an eye out for another email in October with the election ballot -  please participate as YOUR VOTE COUNTS!

This will be my last newsletter message to WAMA members as your president. I would like to thank you for giving me the honor to serve in this capacity. And I truly appreciate all the support and encouragement from my fellow Board members and WAMA Executive Director.

Arif Ghouse
