The members, officers, and board of directors would like to thank you for visiting the Washington Airport Management Association (WAMA) website.

Airports face many challenges in the days to come, and changes that will greatly affect how airports and aviation are treated in our state. Please consider joining our ranks and becoming a voice to be heard. See the “join WAMA” page for information on membership.

Upcoming Events and Activities

On May 21-23, 2014, record-breaking attendance of over 120 attendees representing airports and aviation-related businesses and governmental agencies from Washington state met at Lake Chelan for the 2014 WAMA Annual Conference. Thanks to the many volunteers, conference committee members, conference sponsors and so many great presenters who made our conference such a huge success! This conference presents an opportunity for our members to gather together to discuss issues that are relevant to the aviation industry in our state. This past year, our organization has been deeply involved in highly impactful legislative issues within our state and the federal government. Our conference presents us with a venue to keep pace with current issues and to obtain input from our membership. WAMA's Board of Directors will continue to work hard on our association’s behalf - but we must rely on the continued support of a strong membership. Thank you to all our members who attended this year’s conference, and we look forward to seeing you at our next conference May 20-22, 2015 in Spokane, Washington.
