Executive Director's Report:

Executive Director’s Report:  October 1, 2018

As we move into fall, activities at WAMA tend to ramp up.
 

  • By the middle of October, we will have our slate of candidates running for offices and open board positions.  Voting will take place in November.
  • Once the officers are elected, committee chairs will be chosen.  We encourage you to volunteer to be on a committee.  For most committees, it involves a tele-conference once a month and it gives you an opportunity to be an active part of WAMA, see what is taking place at the Board level, and help to make a difference in our organization.
  • The Scholarship Committee will be updating the documents for 2019 and will soon be sending out invitations to apply.
  • Our membership drive begins in September with renewals in January.  Now is the time to talk to your associates-- the contractors and consultants with whom you work-- to encourage them to join. Benefits to associates include receiving the biweekly WAMA Waypoints, the quarterly newsletter, invitation to the WAMA Conference and airport tours, and the opportunity to purchase a banner ad and have their business featured in the newsletter.
  • For airport management members, besides the biweekly WAMA Waypoints and quarterly newsletter, a great service is the ability to have a question answered quickly by airport managers around the state who have dealt with the issue you are questioning.  Recently, a non-member Washington airport had an insurance question.  The airport wanted to know what other airports did in their particular situation.  Unfortunately, not being a WAMA member, I was unable to forward the question out to the membership.  As you talk to fellow airport staff, make them aware of this very helpful service we offer.  Our experienced airport staff members are very knowledgeable and more helpful than Google.
  • Keep in mind that the WAMA Waypoints and newsletters are information vehicles.  Feel free to send me articles, updates, news on retirements, promotions, or honors, job notifications, or other pieces of information that will be of interest to WAMA members.
  • As we head toward 2019, the Fly Washington Passport Program is alive and well and is looking forward to launching the program officially at the Northwest Aviation Conference and Trade Show in February.  It is exciting that this is finally coming to fruition.  It will be a benefit for airports and pilots alike.

As I head toward completing my third year with WAMA, I feel fortunate to be able to work with such talented, goal-oriented, supportive, and friendly people.  All of you make this the best job I have ever had, and it is an honor to be serving WAMA. Thanks to you all and have a safe and enjoyable fall.

All the best,
