NBAA celebrates 2022 Leadership Conference
Confidence is high for EBACE following the successful turnout for this year's NBAA Leadership Conference and its Regional Forum. The association says people want to mingle, sharing lessons and networking opportunities.

With nearly 400 attendees on hand for a sold-out slate of Professional Development Programme (PDP) offerings, two outstanding networking sessions and a roster of all-star speakers, the NBAA's 2022 Leadership Conference in Fort Worth, Texas, exceeded the organisers' expectations.

Organised under the event's co-chairs Business Aviation Management Committee volunteers Dave Salvador of Gogo Business Aviation and Brad Self, CAM with VF Corp , this year's event featured the conference's most compelling speaker line up to date.

Discussions focused on next-level thinking, setting an example through positive influence, motivating a superstar team, ensuring organisational health and safety and creating a dynamic workplace where innovation can thrive.

“Our dynamic speakers helped us leverage the ways that the COVID era's challenges can translate into empowerment, excellence and being our authentic selves as we all return to service,” says CAM, senior vice president, education, training and workforce development Jo Damato. “The enthusiastic turnout for this year's event demonstrates that people want to gather to share lessons about leading not just through the pandemic, but beyond it.”

The Leadership Conference comes on the heels of NBAA's standout opening event for 2022, a Regional Forum held on 2 February at Miami-Opa Locka Executive airport in Florida, which drew nearly 2,500 attendees and featured a sold-out exhibit floor, along with 16 aircraft on display, a schedule of education sessions, a focus on the future workforce and more.

NBAA president and CEO Ed Bolen said the back-to-back successes of the Regional Forum and Leadership Conference point to similar results for the association's forthcoming events: “This is an extraordinary and exciting time for our industry. The energy and enthusiasm at the Regional Forum and again at our Leadership Conference have been off the charts. This bodes extremely well for our upcoming events, including EBACE 2022, which is shaping up to be a great show.”
