ALEXANDRIA, MINN. – When you think of the state of Minnesota, you think of the land of 10,000 lakes. So it is only befitting to hold the “Minnesota Airports Conference” in lake country, and Alexandria, Minnesota is a community known for its many lakes and recreation. The conference will be held April 17-19, 2013 at the Arrowhead Conference Center.
On Wednesday after the opening lunch, the Minnesota Council of Airports (MCOA) will hold its annual membership meeting, followed by an update from the Minnesota Office of Aeronautics. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will provide an update Thursday morning, followed by morning sessions including one on “how to acquire airport revenue from non-aeronautical sources.”
The FAA/Governor’s Award will be presented during the noon luncheon on Thursday, followed by Jeff Hamiel of the Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) with an update on what is happening at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and MAC’s six reliever airports.
A topic on “how to accomplish an airport project from A to Z,” will be followed by a session on “how to manager an airport within a business environment.”
On Friday, MCOA will present its awards, followed by a presentation by Barry Cooper of the FAA Great Lakes Region.
