One of the most important investments one can make is to join AMAC. A strong, unified voice through AMAC is the best opportunity the airport industry has in making a difference in diversity inclusion initiatives.

The Airport Minority Advisory Council (AMAC) is the only national, non-profit trade association dedicated to advancing the full participation of minority and women in employment and contracting opportunities throughout the aviation and aerospace industries. AMAC concentrates on eliminating barriers to minority and women participation in these industries and understands that diversity inclusion fuels innovation and is essential when developing airports of the future. AMAC brings together a diverse multi-dimensional group of airport operators, government officials, corporations and entrepreneurs who share in the vision and mission of AMAC.
