2018 WAMA / OAMA JOINT CONFERENCE

Save the Date:  May 21-23, 2018
Skamania Lodge, Stevenson, WA


Your WAMA conference committee is preparing for our 2018 annual conference and this year we will be joined by OAMA.    Please mark your calendars for May 21-23, 2018 (and note this year we will begin on Monday and end on Wednesday). We are pleased to announce the venue for this event will be the beautiful Skamania Lodge, located in Stevenson, Washington.  The Skamania Lodge has sold out of rooms for Tuesday.  If you haven't yet made your room reservations, we recommend trying the Best Western Columbia River Inn in Hood River.  541-374-8777 Website

We are in the beginning stages of planning the agenda and already have confirmed some very timely topics and speakers we believe to be beneficial to all attendees.
  
The OAMA board and all members have also been invited to suggest some topics and/or speakers of interest to them.

In addition to offering current and valuable information, the joint WAMA/OAMA conference will also provide an excellent opportunity to network with airport counterparts and aviation colleagues throughout the states of Washington and Oregon.  Our schedule includes many opportunities for informal discussions to learn firsthand what is new and exciting at both Washington and Oregon Airports as well as get advice or feedback on current aviation issues.

We know firms are watching every dollar, weighing the merits of return.  And as you know, the WAMA/OAMA conference will offer great opportunities to talk to airport staff away from the office and find out what is happening on airfields across the states, to make new connections and find out about new projects being planned.

Conference Fee:  $350 / early bird $325 before April 1. The registration fee includes all conference sessions and materials, Monday evening reception, breakfast, lunch and dinner on Tuesday, breakfast and lunch on Wednesday, and all breaks and refreshments. You may also pre-register a guest to attend the Tuesday Dinner.
