LAMA Keeps Its Members Informed
Through quarterly meetings, annual conferences, and periodic workshops, LAMA keeps its members informed of the latest developments in Louisiana’s aviation industry. The association has consistently been the best source of accurate information regarding the industry and is often called upon by its members to verify new data.
In addition to offering continuing education to its members, LAMA also awards annual scholarships to outstanding aviation students enrolled at one of Louisiana’s participating colleges and universities.
Another major benefit of membership is the LAMA Small Airport Advisory Committee. This committee is composed of experienced airport managers and professionals of larger airports. The purpose of the committee is to provide assistance and advice to airports that do not have the budget, personnel, or experience to accomplish certain activities, such as consultant selection, FAA funding, etc. The committee assists member airports in these efforts. There is no cost for this help – it is a benefit of membership in LAMA.
