The members, officers, and board of directors would like to thank you for visiting the Washington Airport Management Association (WAMA) website. This site reflects the activities, interests and concerns of the professionals who manage, operate, and develop airports in Washington state in support of passengers, pilots and the public.
A Message from WAMA's President:
New Membership-Driven WebsiteFollowing on the heels of our very successful 2014 WAMA Conference in beautiful Lake Chelan, the task of building our new membership-driven website began. The project was spearheaded by WAMA's secretary, David Field and with the help of our web team, Sandra Engstrom and Tony Green, and the input of the board members and our executive director, the new site was implemented. One of the features of this new site is our enhanced ability to interact with our members and members to interact with each other. In addition, renewing your membership each year and registering for events has been streamlined. David will cover the specific features of the new site in his presentation, here.
Farewell To Past President Ryan ZulaufWhile it is with deep regret that I announce Ryan Zulauf’s departure from the WAMA Board, it is with greater enthusiasm that the WAMA board, its officers, our executive director and the WAMA membership collectively wish Ryan well as he embarks on a new career with FAA in Community Planning. I have always admired Ryan’s extraordinary vision and insight and our organization greatly benefited as a result of his significant contributions these past several years. Ryan’s shoes will be tough to fill as his leadership service to WAMA was exceptional. We wish you well Ryan and you will be greatly missed.
WSDOT Aviation System Plan Update
The overall objective of the system plan update is to assess the condition and performance of Washington State’s aviation system, update activity forecasts and performance standards, determine system requirements, program development priorities and identify policy recommendations. This effort will recognize the opportunities and limitations of the existing aviation system and the desire of the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) Aviation Division to maintain a safe, sufficient system capacity and performance, integrate technological advances in aviation safety and operational function, ensure environmental stewardship and propagate airport-adjacent land use best practices. WAMA’s executive director, Warren Hendrickson is currently serving on the Aviation System Plan Consultant Selection Team.
