Athena Program: “Emergency Management”

Directly following the NAAA Support Meet & Greet, stay for the new Athena presentation, which will focus on emergency management and awareness. The program will provide useful information and insight about this important topic.

Part professional development and part support network, participation from all of you is what makes this program so successful. Join us to share ideas, concerns and solutions that come from our life experiences in the agricultural aviation industry.
