Greetings from your MAAE Board of Directors! It is our pleasure to invite you to the 69th Michigan Association of Airport Executives 2022 Annual Conference at Mission Point Resort on Mackinac Island.
Our annual conference is designed to provide airport sponsors, managers, consultants, and others interested in airport management practices the opportunity to meet in an open forum to share information and ideas. The conference also provides a versatile medium to inform attendees regarding changes and opportunities available to airport communities. Vendors have the opportunity to display new equipment, products and processes, while consultants can interact with attendees and explain their particular areas of interest. We look forward to seeing you in September!
