Executive Director's Report:

Executive Director’s Report:  July 1, 2018

I love this time of year when the weather is warm and flying season is at its peak.  This is the busy time for airports as they spruce up their grounds and work on projects while the weather allows it, all the while, welcoming the pilots who choose to stop for food, fuel, service, or recreation . 

Although the summer is a bit of a lull for the WAMA Board after a very busy spring, here are just some of the activities WAMA has been involved with this first half of the year:

•    The year started off with Aviation Awareness Day at the Capital in Olympia. 
•    In February, WAMA hosted a booth at the Northwest Aviation Conference and Trade Show. 
•    Scholarship applications arrived and winners were chosen. 
•    The Legislative Committee pushed for legislation to support airports and testified at the Transportation Hearing. 
•    Collaboration with the Oregon Airport Management Association and many hours of work by the Conference Committee provided a top-notch WAMA/OAMA Conference at Skamania Lodge.
•    WAMA Waypoints, a biweekly bulletin was created.
•    A formal airport tour program was created.

The committees are active and busy accomplishing actions that serve the WAMA membership.  If you would like to be involved, contact one of the committee members, President Tim Mensonides, or Executive Director Marjy Leggett and we will assist you. 

The WAMA Conference keeps getting better and better.  This year the Conference Committee did an outstanding job of putting it all together and working with OAMA to provide an informative program for all.  Next year’s conference will be in Walla Walla, Washington June 3-5.

The election process will start in July.  If you are interested in running for office or as director, contact Laura Holthus.

Airport tours are scheduled for August 10 in Yakima and October 19 at Pierce County (Tacoma Narrows and Thun Field).  This is a great opportunity to step out of the box and pick up new ideas for your own airport.

WAMA Waypoints is a biweekly bulletin provided as a way for you to keep in touch, post job openings, announcements, classified ads, and RFQs.  Let us know of retirements, new managers, and events.  Waypoints is one of the vehicles available to members for communication.

Have a wonderful summer and stay safe!

All the best,
