The 2022 OAMA Fall Conference will be live and in-person this year! Our last attended conference was in the spring of 2020, right before the Covid 19 pandemic. I, for one, am really looking forward to seeing people in person again.
The dates this year are Sunday, October 23rd through Tuesday, October 25th. The Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites will be our conference home in beautiful southern Oregon. October is a great time of year for that portion of our state with it’s beautiful fall colors on display, cooler evenings to enjoy all the incredible wineries, and the variety of entertainment options with the Shakespeare Festival, as well as other local theaters. Although the conference is being held in Ashland, it’s being hosted by the Rogue Valley International – Medford Airport in Medford, which is just 15 miles north on the freeway. Medford is where you want to go for shopping opportunities and the fantastic breweries and eateries. You may want to stay more than just a couple of days!
But lets stay focused on the conference! We’ve got some great topics lined up including Homelessness and the impact to airports, Vertiports, and Urban Air Mobility, we’ll be hearing from industry leaders on the state of the airlines, and our colleagues from the FAA and TSA will be filling us in on grant processes and security. You’ll also have the opportunity to tour MFR’s airport!
You’ll find the registration for the conference below.
We’re also looking for nominations for 2022_AIRPORT_MANAGER_OF_THE_YEAR_NOMINATION_FORM.01
One of our newer awards will be going to a Airport Volunteer of the Year. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to nominate someone. In the body of the email include why you believe the individual should be recognized as a volunteer.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s 2022 OAMA Fall Conference!
