North American Aviation Archaeology Summit Event Report

Lance Barber, The North American Aviation Archaeology Summit 2010 will be held at the Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport in Broomfield, Colorado, over the weekend of April 17th & 18th, 2010.

Hosted by the North American Institute of Aviation Archaeology (NAIAA) and the Northern Colorado field office of AvAr, this two day event is intended to gather serious members of the aviation archaeology and wreckchasing communities in an effort to establish guidelines for a national organization.

Focused on open discussion and workgroup sessions, the design of this conference is to maximize participation for all who attend. Rather than offering presentations of past accomplishments, attendees will be invited to contribute ideas based on knowledge and previous experiences that will lend to the development of a new, national organization of aviation archaeology.

Addressing such issues as organizational structure, mission orientation, principles of operation, educational standards, and membership criteria, along with establishment of an ethical code of conduct will be the primary focus of this Summit.

This is a truly unique opportunity to help create a national organization. What will be discussed at this conference may well shape the future of aviation archaeology for all enthusiasts. Should you wish to attend please RSVP no later than December 31st, 2009. To RSVP for this Summit please contact Brian Richardson or Matthew Hensarling of the North American Institute of Aviation Archaeology.

Daily refreshments and handout materials will be provided. A special discount rate for lodging near the facility has also been arranged for early registrants. Attending delegates will also receive a commemorative certificate of recognition for their participation in this monumentous summit.
