I feel privileged to have the opportunity to serve as the Chairman of the Alberta Airports Management Association for the 2014-2015 term. I am lucky to be working with a dedicated group serving as the board of directors alongside me as we continue to strive to represent all of our members while addressing all of the important issues facing the airport community.
This year we are striving to expand our membership by including out of province airports and airport related business in our bylaws. This will allow us to provide more training and have a larger field to draw on for information and experience. We continue to work towards a position on the Strategic Transportation Advisory Committee by meeting with the Minister of Transportation for Alberta as we feel that this position would allow us to represent the provinces airports better. Our annual maintenance and training seminar will once again be held the first week of June and promises to be better than ever with guest speakers from across the aviation community and a new venue in down town Edmonton.
I am excited to lead this organization forward to meet the challenges and embrace the changes that lie ahead during my term. Thank you for this amazing opportunity to represent you as Chairman.
William Stewart, C.M.
