Greetings AMAC Family:

On behalf of AMAC, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Chicago for the 37th Annual AMAC Airport Business Diversity Conference. At AMAC, our commitment is to enhance opportunities and ensure equal access for minorities and women in the airport industry, both as employees and business partners. We are the national voice and recognized leader for employment diversity, inclusion and full contracting opportunities in the airport industry. 

Engagement with AMAC has never been stronger and broader. This engagement is evident in the number of participants at this year’s conference, your active engagement on committees and the expansion of strategic alliances. This year’s conference will serve as a platform to refocus that engagement around expanding our economic pursuits from business development to wealth creation and economic control. 

#AMAC2022 will provide outstanding education, training, advocacy and networking with airport and aviation partners. The four-day symposium will bring together a strategic, diverse mix of over 1,000 public sector and private industry business professionals, aviation leaders, government officials, entrepreneurs and stakeholders to learn and further establish relationships within our airport industry. This premier conference is an essential resource for minority professionals, small businesses and entrepreneurs seeking knowledge, experience and opportunities within our critical airport industry. 

Diversity, equity and inclusion are our strengths. I look forward to working with you to strengthen our vital industry by ensuring opportunities for the growth and development of minority professionals and businesses within the airport community. Please accept my best wishes for a productive, memorable conference.

Thank you for your attendance and continued support!
