MARPA Winter Meeting
The 2015 MARPA Winter Meeting will be held in Washington, DC on February 9, 2015. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 9:30 am and last through 4:30 pm. It is open to all MARPA members and there is no charge for members to attend
The Winter Meeting is an intimate opportunity to work closely with the Association and the Board on a topics of special interest to MARPA members. The meeting is held each Winter at MARPA Headquarters, unless we exceed our Conference capacity (in which case it is moved to a nearby facility). There is no charge for registering for this meeting, which is open for all active MARPA members. If you would like to propose future discussion topics for the Winter Meeting, please contact MARPA.
This meeting typically includes presentations by government and trade association representatives. This year, we have invited Fred Elliott and Brad Hess from the U.S. International Trade Administration (we are working with them on the export initiatives), Barb Capron (who is working on the FAA's SMS program) and John Milewski and Robert Sprayberry (who head up PMA policy for the FAA). Note that the attendance of invited guests remains subject to government permissions and priorities
The meeting also includes a discussion of MARPA strategic objectives, initiatives, and plans. MARPA's new export promotion initiative, including the Istanbul meeting, will be a featured item of discussion.
The meetign will take place at MARPA Headquarters, and many attendees stay at the Holiday Inn on Wisconsin Avenue, about a block south of our location.
We have limited space for this meeting, so if you plan to attend, please RSVP to Katt Brigham by calling her at (202) 628-6777.
