Aerospace Day 2018
More than 90 AFA members and aerospace businesses, and numerous state lawmakers, converged during AFA's annual Aerospace Day at the State Capitol. Participants heard legislative updates on bills and initiatives relevant to the aerospace industry, gained important updates from industry executives, and had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with their own legislators. The day wrapped up with a reception at the Boeing House for a recap of the day and for networking.
