Executive Director's Report:

Letter to the WAMA Membership – September, 2017

Summer is flying season and a time to promote your airport.  As we head into the fall, the peak of flying season is winding down, but there are still some excellent flying days ahead where the air is cool, crisp, and smooth and pilots don’t have to be quite so concerned with density altitude.  This is the time to start planning your activities for next year.  Get them on the calendar so pilot organizations can start promoting them.  Don’t forget to consider a fall activity to bring the community to your airport.  Take advantage of the offer by The Northwest Council of Airshows as mentioned in the September WAMA newsletter and be sure to check out the pictures and activities by the Port of Benton, Harvey Field, and Sequim Airport, also mentioned in the September newsletter.

Are you taking advantage of the resources offered by the WAMA website?  Keep abreast of the Board of Director activities and discussions by checking out the minutes and action plans.  Looking for a job or a change of place?  Aviation related job opportunities are posted as soon as we receive them.  If you are looking for a job, check it out.  If you have a vacancy, let us know and we will make sure it gets posted.

WAMA also serves as a resource community in which to find answers to your airport questions.  Are you at a small airport?  Have a question about land leases or need a source for fixing hangar doors?  Send out your question and you will receive helpful responses from experienced airport managers in return.

The WAMA Board of Directors is an impressive, energetic group focused on communication, scholarships, and issues that affect your airport operations.  There are seven committees:  Airports, Legislative, Membership, Human Resources, Scholarships/Internships, Conference/Education, and Finance.   Become an active part of your organization by volunteering to serve on one of these committees.  Most committees meet by conference call once a month or less.  The time is minimal, but the accomplishments and rewards are great.

Finally, have you purchased your aviation license plate, yet?  I have mine and am so excited to promote aviation as I drive about.  The licenses are colorful with a blue and yellow biplane on the left side. They became available on July 23rd.

Don’t forget to send me articles for the newsletter or updates on your airport activities

Have a great fall!

All the best,
Marjy Leggett
Executive Director, WAMA
