2023 CONFERENCE THEME: "Unidos to Reach New Heights"

This year the conference will be co-hosted by the Northwest Mountain and Western-Pacific Chapters. Our logo design illustrates many elements and the unique concept of Mount Rainier in the background escalating above the Seattle skyline and the iconic Space Needle to demonstrate monumental and rising symbols achieving an elevated stature.

You may notice a bridge which is the Golden Gate Bridge which symbolizes both the idea of achieving a monumental stance and the recognition of the support from the Western-Pacific Chapter as a cohost. We see an Airplane soaring above all as our organization revolves around aviation which is the vessel to take us to new heights.

You may also notice the skyline which is blended with different colors representing our diverse organization that comes together to make a unique sight that rivals those stunning Seattle sunsets. Finally, we see a ring of green around the logo representing Seattle known as the Emerald City. A special thanks to the Conference Committee for collaborating towards the design and the theme of this year’s great logo.

In addition to meeting new members and learning about other career fields, the conference provided excellent training throughout. I did not feel “death by PowerPoint” at any time as the speakers were very interactive, entertaining, and knowledgeable. I was surprised how much training we completed in just days. Notably, the training was not focused strictly on FAA computer based training. There were speakers from other organizations and notable college professors who provided excellent training and professional growth. I could honestly say that I benefited and learned from every single course.

“I had a wonderful opportunity to attend the NHCFAE Training Conference in Atlanta, GA this year. I have been part of the "NHFCAE and FAA for a few months. The Conference Committee gets my kudos. I cannot imagine the coordination of hours of research, emails, phone calls, letters, etc. it took to put a conference of this magnitude in action. It was very well organized with great information, important keynot speaking, with the variety of training available and meeting members of the “faamilia” was impressive. The scholarships awarded and the banquet all organized perfectly, it is THE BEST conference I have ever attended.

“After hearing FAA Administrator Michael Huerta describe how he became interested in aviation industry, I was inspired to become more involved. I’ve contacted the local Carlsbad, CA school district to attend all the career days this school year. My goal is to get lots of Hispanic boys and girls interested in aviation careers, such as Air Traffic Controller, Airways Transportation System Specialist and administrataive positions within the Federal Aviation Administration.”

“The National Hispanic Coalition’s mission states we are a “diverse organization that focuses on advocating career placement and advancement through support, education and alliances.” The conference was successful in fulfilling our mission by affording members the opportunity to learn from and network across all lines of business, by offering training sessions that can and will be used not only for professional advancement but personal enrichment.”
