ACI-NA Commissioners Congressional Reception Just One Month Away

The 2013 ACI-NA Commissioners Congressional Reception in Washington, D.C. is just one month away. This year’s reception will be held on Wednesday, March 20 from 6:00-8:00pm in the Rayburn House Office Building Room B-369 on Capitol Hill.  Registration and sponsorship forms are now available.

There are two major components to this event. First, there is the presentation of the Commissioners Congressional Leadership Award to a Member of Congress or an Administration official for their contributions to the aviation industry.  This year’s award will recognize the Honorable Frank LoBiondowho serves as the Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure’s Subcommittee on Aviation. 

Additionally, sponsorshipproceeds from the reception support the ACI-NA Commissioners Scholarship Fund, which supports students of high academic achievement who are working toward a career in airport management or airport administration.  Since 1993, the Commissioners Committee has awarded over 50 individual scholarships totaling $130,000.  To assist in the overall funding of the scholarship fund, the following sponsorship levels are available:  Platinum,  $3,000 and 10 passes; Gold, $2,000 and 6 passes; Silver, $1,000 and 4 passes; and Support, $500 and 1 pass. 

In addition to receiving the number of passes above, ACI-NA will list all airport and associate sponsors on its website and on signage at the reception.  This is an excellent opportunity to network with Members of Congress, Congressional staff, and key federal officials, as well as show your support for airport issues while simultaneously showing your support for a very worthwhile cause in the Commissioners Scholarship Fund. For more information pertaining to sponsorships please contact ACI-NA’s Angel Scott (ascott@aci-na.org) or 202-293-8500.

We hope you will consider attending this year’s reception and consider becoming an official sponsor.
