Why Attend the IPAA Conference?

The annual airport conference offers an engaging couple of days away from the office for personal growth and relationship-building with other IPAA members and stakeholders. Exercise your voting privileges in the general meeting, get vital updates on our aviation legislative priorities and take advantage of opportunities for fun that highlight the locale. Past examples include golf outings, Iowa aircraft displays and tours of local attractions.
