NBAA Maintenance Management Conference (MMC)
The 2014 National Business Aviation Association Maintenance Management Conference (MMC2014) is just around the corner. It will be held April 22-24 in Tampa, FL. If you are in an aviation maintenance management role, MMC should be on your list of must-attend conferences!
The D.O.M. magazine staff will be at MMC2014. This will be my fifth time attending MMC. I do have one regret – that I didn’t start attending it earlier! MMC is the ideal venue to hone your leadership and management skills. Industry experts share their knowledge on various topics relevant to managing an aircraft maintenance operation. MMC also gives attendees the opportunity to network with each other and share best practices. If you are in a maintenance management role, I would strongly encourage you to look at attending MMC!
Here are what some industry veterans are saying about MMC:
“For me, MMC is about meeting with my colleagues in the industry and obtaining perspectives from their experience. It’s an opportunity for mutual sharing among those of us in leadership roles.” Jim Sparks, Director of Aircraft maintenance, Richardson Aviation.
“As technology driven as we are, this is a relationship-based business and face-time has significant value. My intent at MMC is to interact with existing vendors, talk about proposals, see what new products and providers are out there, and get business done.” Steve King, Director of Maintenance, COX Enterprises, Inc.
“MMC brings the marketplace to the decision maker. And when you ignite that relationship between a vendor and decision maker, it turns into instant return on investment for both parties.” Brad Townsend, Aircraft Asset Manager for a Mid-Atlantic Fortune 100 Company.
“It’s three dedicated days of maintenance related professional development you won’t get anywhere else. It doesn’t matter if you are a pilot or mechanic – the agenda addresses hot-button topics for anyone dealing with managing the maintenance function. It’s the premier event for maintenance in the world, and dollar for dollar, the best value of any conference you can attend.” Marlin Priest, President, Pioneer Aviation Management.
