Conferences & Events

The Association of Airport Internal Auditors (AAIA) had its first conference in 1990 in Orlando, Florida, and, through 2019, hosted 30 consecutive conferences that have met the needs and interests of Airport Internal Auditors.  Then the COVID-19 Pandemic struck and the 31st Annual Conference was rescheduled from June 2020 to September 2021. To adapt to the varying needs of our members, this conference offered both in-person and virtual learning platforms.

Despite the Pandemic, we are determined to stay connected using webinars, virtual meetings, and an improved Forum platform.   See below for upcoming and past events.
