The 2015 MARPA Winter Meeting was held in Washington, DC on February 9, 2015.
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 welcomed Fred Elliott from the U.S. International Trade Administration (we are working with him 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).
The meeting also included a discussion of MARPA strategic objectives, initiatives, and plans. MARPA's new export promotion initiative, including the Istanbul meeting, was a featured item of discussion.
The meetign took place at MARPA Headquarters. As each year, the Winter Meeting was open to all MARPA members and there is no charge for members to attend.
