When I was a student and asked my godmother for career advice, she shared her love of helping people find the perfect home. "The most important thing is to find what makes you happy," she told me. "There are only a few things you need in life, and shelter is one of them. I love helping people find their home — it’s the greatest gift."
Supplier Updates
If your company was NOT registered for an exhibit booth at the 2016 conference, you will be able to select and purchase a booth at 9 a.m. (Eastern time) on Friday, March 24. A link will be made available on the FAA website www.faahq.org, under the Events tab, Annual Conference section. Last year, the FAA trade show sold out the same day it became available to all interested suppliers, and it is likely to sell out quickly on Friday. Please note: This site does not function properly on mobile devices.
