“Tell me and I will forget. Show me and I will remember. Involve me and I will understand. Step back and I will act.”
I was in San Diego, CA a few weeks ago attending NBAA's Maintenance Management Conference (MMC). On the last evening of the conference, I was approached by Brad Townsend, chairman of the NBAA maintenance committee, saying that a meeting had just been held between key members of the NBAA maintenance committee, AMTSociety and the Professional Aviation Maintenance Association (PAMA). I was told that an agreement had been reached in relation to working together towards common goals and that an official news announcement would be sent out in the near future.
The D.O.M. magazine staff was in San Diego last week attending NBAA’s Maintenance Management Conference (MMC). The theme of this year’s conferencewas “Building a Community of Leaders.”
If you weren’t at the conference,you missed some great presentations. One of the talks that I got a lot from was“The Global War on Error” by Dr. Tony Kern. Dr. Kern talked about the need fortrue professionalism in the aviation maintenance industry.
