In late February, when much of the country was being slammed with constant snowfall and below average temperatures, the Boston area was especially hard hit. ABC affiliate WMUR 9 went behind the scenes at the Manchester - Boston Regional Airport to capture the airport’s crew as they worked around the clock to stay one step ahead of Mother Nature. Carl Braley, Jr., co-chair of the I.A.S.S. and Superintendent of Airport Maintenance at MHT was featured in the story.

The NEC/AAAE Snow Symposium is proud to announce a new award for the 2016-2017 season. The HEAVY HITTER award is designed to recognize an individual for their integral efforts as a part of your snow removal operations over this past season. The uniqueness of this awards lies in the merits of how it is awarded. A nominee could be virtually anyone on your staff: an operator who went above and beyond the call of duty, someone who effectively trained new personnel within your operation, an individual who sacrificed for others, or even someone in an administrative role who made sure that uniforms were cleaned and hot meals on the ready. The nominee is truly an individual in your operation who was able to take some of the burden off of you as a supervisor and be a HEAVY HITTER for the team. We are asking that you pleasesubmit a nomination from your airport for this award.

Deadline for submission is Friday, April 7th. Please return submissions to: tim.haizlip@flylouisville.com

The recipient will be based solely on supervisor nomination/merit and NOT the size of the airport or the amount of snowfall that they receive. Please encourage any other airports that you have contact with (large or small) to nominate someone if they have a deserving individual.

The Northeast Chapter of the American Association of Airports Executives (NEC/AAAE) International Aviation Snow Symposium (I.A.S.S.) Committee would like to thank you for attending and contributing to the 50th Anniversary of the annual Snow Symposium in Buffalo N.Y. on April 23, 2016 through April 27, 2016.

This symposium was the largest event in our 50 year history with nearly 900 in attendance. Our theme was Innovate. Celebrate. Educate. Our main focus has always been how to ensure even safer winter operations at our nation’s airports and across the globe. We challenge ourselves to be better than the last year by providing our attendees with excellent general session topics, great guest speakers and the sharing of best practices in the industry.

We had two specific objectives; to provide an assembly of individuals who are interested in improving winter operations at airports and to bring to this event the industry leaders and the most modern equipment available. We had over 75 exhibitors who helped achieve these goals.

It was our pleasure and honor to host the 50th I.A.S.S. Anniversary Celebration. We certainly hope that you enjoyed yourself and it was a valuable learning experience. Please respond with any thoughts you may have that could enhance our program. If your experience at the 50th was as we intended we hope that you will attend our 51st.

Sincerely,
Committee, International Aviation Snow Symposium

Attendees thoroughly enjoyed the first I.A.S.S. Snow Plow Rodeo and BBQ, as well as the Snow Symposium Museum featuring various memorabilia from the first 50 years of the event.



“I can’t thank all of our sponsors, committee members, volunteers and every single attendee enough for making the 50th Snow Symposium the best one ever!
