2017 Annual Conference - May 2 - 4, 2017 - Semiahmoo Resort, Blaine, Washington

January 30, 2017

Dear WAMA Sponsor:

We hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones.  We all have much to be grateful for in 2017.

We have experienced a very severe winter. We think you will all agree we are ready for the sun and warmer temperatures. Your WAMA conference committee is already preparing for our spring conference.  Please mark your calendars for May 2- 4, 2017 (and note this year we will begin on Tuesday and end on Thursday). We are pleased to announce the venue for this event will be the Semiahmoo Resort, located in beautiful Blaine, Washington. We have confirmed some very timely topics and speakers we believe to be beneficial to all attendees. This meeting will begin on Tuesday with a conference planning meeting, golf scramble and reception.

We will also be inviting the OAMA board members to attend and possibly plan a joint conference for 2018 in Eastern Washington.

In addition to offering current and valuable information, the conference will also provide an excellent opportunity to network with airport counterparts and aviation colleagues throughout the state.  Our schedule includes opportunities for informal discussions to learn firsthand what is new and exciting at Washington's airports, as well as get advice or feedback on current aviation issues.

This year we have multiple sponsorship opportunities, including our group meals, door prizes, and hospitality suite.   We know firms are watching every dollar, weighing the merits of return.  And as you know, the WAMA conferences are great opportunities to talk to airport staff away from the office and find out what is happening on airfields across the state.  It is a chance to make new connections and find out about new projects being planned.

In order to encourage sponsor contributions to the annual WAMA conference, and give the contributing sponsors some benefit in thanks for their gift, WAMA shall provide one complimentary conference registration for each sponsor contribution of $1,000.

Please review the 2017 WAMA Conference Sponsorship form to see where you can be a part of what is bound to be another great
WAMA event.  The registration fee is $275 and the hotel rate is $125 per night for WAMA Members.

Please call Kelly Thompson, Port of Benton, at (509) 375-3060 or email the attached form to kelly@portofbenton.com and tell us where you would like to help out.

Thank you for your time, efforts and contributions.  While the WAMA board plans the conferences, we know it is the sponsors who make them memorable.  We look forward to seeing you at the Semiahmoo Resort in May!

Sincerely,

John Haakenson,
Director of Airports, Port of Benton
