Spring Regional Events Put Strong Focus on Safety

March 25, 2013

Business Aviation Professionals to Gain CAM Credit at Events in Columbus, Chicago, San Jose and Washington Areas

NBAA supports scores of regional business aviation groups in their ongoing efforts to bring educational and professional development opportunities to local communities. In addition to regular membership meetings, such groups will often host annual events with a safety, advocacy or charitable focus for the benefit of their memberships.

This spring, many regional business aviation groups are putting a strong focus on safety, with day-long programs such as safety days, safety standdowns and other workshops being offered nationwide. Many such events qualify for credit toward NBAA's Certified Aviation Manager (CAM) credential for professionals pursuing that credential.

NBAA encourages Members to support their regional groups and advance their professional development by attending regional safety events. Details about the next four CAM-approved regional events are listed below and many more regional events are listed on NBAA's Upcoming Regional Events page.
