AMAC’s annual Airport Business Diversity Conference provides unique opportunities for students to network with professionals around the country and learn about the aviation industry’s role in our communities. Several events at the annual conference support the AMAC Foundation and Scholarship Fund.
Bill Walker Memorial Golf Tournament
A cornerstone event of the AMAC annual Airport Business Diversity Conference, the Bill Walker Memorial Golf Tournament supports the AMAC Foundation and Scholarship Fund.
Bill Walker joined AMAC while working as Vice President at Pacific State Airlines. His affiliation with the Airport Business Diversity Conference began in 1988 at the Los Angeles, California conference. Walker began planning the golf tournament shortly after and continued to organize it until illness prevented him from doing so. The tournament was named after Bill Walker in honor of his dedication and commitment to AMAC and the Airport Business Diversity Conference.
During the annual conference, a silent auction is held to raise funds to support the AMAC Foundation scholarships. Over the years, we’ve featured pro basketball coaching sessions, exquisite jewelry, and airline tickets -- just to name a few! Items are donated by supporters and the highest bidder at the conference takes home the prize. Consider donating to the Silent Auction, and don’t forget to stop by during the annual conference to place your bid!
