Bill Walker Memorial Golf Tournament
The Bill Walker Memorial Golf Tournament is the Foundation’s most significant fundraiser with a full day of fun on the links. This tournament provides for networking with conference attendees, local golfers and key sponsors who all come together to support the AMAC Foundation Scholarship Program.
Bill Walker joined AMAC while working as Vice President at Pacific State Airlines. His affiliation with the Airport Business Diversity Conference began in 1988 at the Los Angeles, California conference. Walker began planning the golf tournament shortly after and continued to organize it until illness prevented him from doing so. The tournament was named after Bill Walker in honor of his dedication and commitment to AMAC and the Airport Business Diversity Conference.
