Welcome to the WAMA website!
Thank you for visiting the Wisconsin Airport Management Association website. WAMA provides and shares vital industry information with airport managers and other aviation professionals throughout the state. WAMA also provides an excellent opportunity to network with fellow aviation professionals and gain an understanding of mutual concerns affecting aviation in Wisconsin through conferences, meetings and correspondence.
Aviation in Wisconsin is a vital economic engine that helps to drive our great state. According to the State Bureau of Aeronautics “2010 Economic Significance of the Aviation Industry in Wisconsin”, the economic impact of Wisconsin aviation facilities supported $6.9 billion in output (sales), nearly 91,000 jobs and provided $3.5 billion in personal income to the state. The aviation industry plays a vital role in both Wisconsin’s economy and quality of life.
Your airport’s participation is critical to overcoming legislative and industry-wide challenges. Learn more about the benefits of being a member of WAMA, the only airport-centric organization in the state. This organization is dedicated to the the airports of Wisconsin. Read more about WAMA’s goals.
One of the best places to discuss and promote the value of the Wisconsin Aviation Industry is our annual conference. We hope you will join us for the 60th Annual Wisconsin Aviation Conference on May 11-13, 2015 in La Crosse.
Whether it is proposed burdensome regulatory changes, new taxes on the system, or airline consolidation, there are undoubtedly many challenging days ahead. Please consider joining our ranks and become a voice to be heard!
Feel free to contact anyone on the WAMA Board of Directors with questions or concerns.
