The Southwest Chapter of the American Association of Airport Executives was originally formed in 1947 as the California Association of Airport Executives (CAAE), the organization has expanded over the years and in 1979 became the Southwest Chapter of the nationwide American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE). The Chapter's membership includes airport representatives primarily from the states of California, Arizona and Nevada.

When did you join SWAAAE and what motivated you to do so?

I joined both AAAE and SWAAAE in the early 1990’s to learn from my peers and network within the industry. With the exception of a few years I spent in Jacksonville, FL, I have been a member of SWAAAE for the better part of 30 years.
