The Education Committee works towards developing the agenda for the upcoming conference and webinars throughout the year. 

There are several topics of interest, but we need people to present! 

This is an amazing opportunity for you to engage with your fellow airport auditors and provide valuable insights across the industry. 


The next AAIA Annual Conference will be in San Antonio, Texas, from June 9th through June 12, 2024.

Webinars are held throughout the year and can be scheduled somewhat around your availability.


The Conference will be held at the Hilton Palacio Del Rio, in San Antonio, Texas.  Conference presenters need to attend in-person.

Webinars will be held online.
