The forum welcomes aviation industry leaders, government officials and business representatives to Washington, DC to exchange ideas, share entrepreneurship best practices and seek innovation in diversity and inclusion initiatives throughout the aviation and aerospace industries. This forum offers insights on airport economic opportunities, outlines AMAC’s federal legislative agenda and includes panel discussions with key Congressional and Administration leadership, plus Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) and Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program updates. Your participation is critical and valuable to this forum’s success and AMAC’s advocacy efforts.
“AMAC is thrilled to welcome our members to our first in-person event since 2019! Since we last convened, the aviation industry no longer exists as we once knew it. However, amid chaos, there is also opportunity. AMAC is diligently working on behalf of our diverse membership to capitalize on economic opportunities that are flowing down the pipeline from national airport bids and jobs to the historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law,” said Eboni Wimbush, President & CEO, AMAC.
Day one will focus on economic opportunities with airports and within the aviation industry. Day two will focus on AMAC’s legislative agenda, where attendees will have the opportunity to engage with lawmakers and regulators to discuss the importance of the DBE/ACDBE programs.
“The forum will provide an opportunity and a dialogue to help encourage full opportunities for minorities across airports and aviation,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director/CEO of BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport and AMAC Chairman. “AMAC is providing important leadership to help foster and grow these principles. We look forward to sharing information and insights with stakeholders from around the country.”
