Airport Consultants Council (ACC) presents the Washington 101 Workshop - a three day workshop designed for professionals with an interest in the role of advocacy and policy formation.

"The Washington 101 workshop was an excellent opportunity to learn more about the inner workings of government, funding, and advocacy – and how they work together to shape our aviation industry. As an airport consultant, understanding how policy decisions are made provided a greater appreciation for my role in the industry and the opportunities we have to advocate for airports."
