The Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) is the only national, non-profit trade association dedicated to promoting the full participation of minority-owned, women-owned and disadvantaged business enterprises (M/W/DBEs) in airport contracting and the inclusion of minorities and women in employment. We have two primary goals: to eliminate the barriers to minority and women participation in the airport industry and to capitalize on the opportunities available in this multi-billion dollar industry.
Since its inception, AMAC has been at the forefront of nearly every national policy initiative impacting the participation of disadvantaged businesses in airport contracting. AMAC also works consistently with Congress, the Federal Government, aviation trade associations and others as a resource for information, education and guidance on business and employment matters.
AMAC believes strongly that the inclusion of more minority-owned and women-owned businesses in airports makes good business sense and reflects the communities and markets these airports serve. As the industry grows, airports continue to increase and expand, furthering the economic growth of communities. With this growth comes enormous opportunity – amounting to billions of dollars annually in construction, procurement, professional services and concession contracts at our nation’s airports. AMAC is filing a “Flight Plan For Success” and you can, too!
AMAC and its affiliates represent thousands of members that include airport operators, government officials, corporations, and M/W/DBE entrepreneurs. No organization practices what it preaches better than AMAC, bringing a diverse multi-dimensional group together for their mutual success. Our twenty-eight year legacy includes high-level, aviation community experience from dedicated professionals in the industry, who volunteer their time to serve as Board and committee members.
What We Do
Promote: AMAC provides centralized current and archived information, online registration for membership and events, and regional contact information for ongoing topical issues of concern impacting members.
Prepare: Regional Directors plan training and outreach forums that offer a broader solution to marketplace business challenges. These 1-1.5 day forums will focus on training for owners and industry professionals, business match making and outreach events around “real” contract and procurement opportunities.
Advocate: AMAC maintains relationships with key congressional committee and subcommittee members on your behalf. We participate in meetings scheduled especially for us with congressional leaders and administrative officials.
Engage: The benefits of being a member of AMAC extend beyond the airport contract dollars. Membership in AMAC offers access to a wealth of resources and experience, plus exposure to a wide array of networking opportunities with your peers, clients, industry decision makers, and potential business associates and employees.
