The Environmental Affairs conference is an annual event featuring environmental airport staff, experienced environmental consultants, and ACI-NA policy experts gathering to learn about developments in federal,  state, and local environmental regulations and policy that affect airports and the aviation industry; share best practices with other experienced environmental professionals for managing environmental impacts in both the U.S. and Canada; promote sustainability initiatives; highlight special projects and innovative approaches to addressing environmental issues; and discuss other emerging topics and trends relevant to our industry . A joint session will be held with the Operations and Technical Affairs Committee to gain a broader perspective on issues of common interest, and to identify areas for cross-collaboration as airport managers strive to do more with less in an increasingly fiscally constrained environment.  The conference provides an unparalleled opportunity for networking and information sharing with your industry peers.

The Clark County Department of Aviation  will host 3 tours of the new terminal during the the Environmental Affairs and Operations and Technical Affairs Conferences.  Each tour will accommodate only 20 people, so tour sign up is on a first-come, first-serve basis.  In order to sign up for a tour you must also be registered for one of the conferences.  To RSVP for a tour, email Casey Jackson(cjackson@aci-na.org) stating which tour time you would prefer followed by your 2nd and 3rd choice times(if your schedule allows).
