Washington Airport Management Association 

A Message from WAMA's President:

Fellow members:

It has been an honor to serve the WAMA organization and collaborate with so many talented individuals this past year. The dedication, insight, and effort the WAMA board and its members put forth in furthering the organization is truly amazing.

2018 has been a busy and successful year for the organization, here are a few highlights:
  •  WAMA began organizing Airport Tours: Port Angeles, Yakima and Pierce County airports all were gracious enough to open their doors. Plans are already underway for host airports for 2019.
  • WAMA started Waypoints, an email update sent out every 2 weeks to keep members appraised of current events. WAMA Executive Director Marjy Leggett does an outstanding job of putting these messages together.
  • Conducting the Joint conference with OAMA at Skamania Lodge, was no small task. The conference committee did an excellent job. There is already talk of having another joint conference in 2021. Perhaps Astoria???
  • For the first time in a few years the organization will operate in the black. Credit for making this happen goes to the WAMA Board for monitoring the budgeting closely and adjusting costs.
  • WAMA representatives initiated productive interaction with the Seattle Airports District Office on a variety of topics in an effort to open communications between our organizations.
  • As you many know the “Fly Washington Passport Program” has stalled for the past 3 years.  Because of the active involvement of WAMA, WPA and WSDOT, passports are being printed, stamps are being distributed, and the program will be kicked off at the NW Aviation Tradeshow in February of 2019. This will be an exciting driver to increase aviation activity around the state.
Have a wonderful remainder of 2018. I wish you all the best as we approach the holiday season and a new year.

Blue Skies,

Tim Mensonides,
President
WAMA
