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 provides numerous opportunities to allow you to expand and grow your network bandwidth.
Our Advisory Councils and Committees play a critical role in the execution of AMAC's mission, vision and strategic plan. Our goal is for each committee to be representative of our membership and include members from various functions and backgrounds.

Airports Economic Opportunity and Policy Forum
This is an annual forum of unique workshops, cosponsored with the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), bringing together airport executives, concessionaires, professional service providers and other aviation officials from both public and private sectors to discuss key airport management, economic, legislative, DBE business, and employment diversity issues.
