Greetings from your MAAE Board of Directors! It is our pleasure to invite you to the 70th Michigan Association of Airport Executives 2023 Annual Conference at Delta Hotels Muskegon Convention Center.
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.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
