AAAA Central Florida Chapter Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament

2014 AAAA Scholarship Golf Tournament

Our annual scholarship golf tournament was held on Friday the 13th of June 2014 at the Shingle Creek Golf Club in Orlando.  The event was sold out again and a full field enjoyed a beautiful morning in the mild Florida weather.  However, the rains came and washed out the event after about nine holes of play.  Nevertheless, a great time was had by all and we made the best of the day with friends of AAAA and many attendees who were in town for the Annual Training Symposium being held on the two days before the event.

We'd like to thank our Golf Tournament Sponsors for their support and making this event a great one.  Our sponsors are shown on our SPONSORS page.

AAAA Exhibits at the 2014 Women in Aviation International Conference

The 25th Annual International Women in Aviation Conference which took place March 6th through March 8th was recently held at Disney’s Coronado Springs. Participants from all over the globe were immersed in the tactics and strategies necessary for successful aviation careers. Increasing attendance numbers of 3,300 participants in 2013, more than 4,500 women and men from all segments of the aviation industry attended the event.  

The inaugural conference, held in 1990 in Prescott, Arizona, had only five tabletop displays. In recent years, exhibitors representing a range of aviation areas fill a large space. Women and men who are controllers, pilots, commercial sector, general aviation, and many more come together for the event. Conference attendees are presented with industry research and information for any questions they may have. They also have the opportunity to connect with various key individuals in the field to learn about the upcoming trends.

To keep up with the significant growth the conference has had in recent years, 339 volunteers helped make the Women in Aviation International Conference possible. Next year, the conference is off to Dallas, Texas to surpass new targets and reach new heights.

AAAA Toys for Tots Social

Each year the Central Florida AAAA chapter holds a Toys for Tots fundraiser. Many local businesses and individuals donate toys for the families in need. Toys for Tots is a Marine Corps Reserve program which began in 1947 and relies on volunteers and donations to make it the success it has become today. Marines attending the events are often reserve Marines who are donating their time, alongside their active duty counterparts, to attend the events to ensure every child possible is given the opportunity to smile a little more during the holidays. Last year, over 15.6 million toys were collected helping over 7.2 million children.
