Several MARPA members have had trouble finding information about this year’s Gorham Conference. Gorham has a new website. You can find information about their Conference at http://www.gorham-tech.com.
Gorham holds the second most important conference for PMA companies (behind MARPA’s Conference, of course!). Their Conference is scheduled to be held March 25 – 27 at the Hilton San Diego Resort & Spa in San Diego, California.
I spoke with Michael Concannon of Gorham Technical Associates, and he told me that he is pleased with the response he’s gotten so far. We are about eight weeks out from his conference, and his hotel room block is already 40% full – at this stage, that demonstrates that he will likely fill the block well before the conference begins. For MARPA members who want to stay at the Conference hotel, this means that you need to make sure you make your reservations before they fill up!
I will be speaking about the effect that U.S. export laws have on PMA parts being sold to non-U.S. customers (or to non-U.S. line stations for U.S. customers).
In other conference news, we have several sponsors already committed for the 2009 MARPA Conference, which will be held Sept 30- Oct 2 in Las Vegas, Nevada. You can find out more on our website at http://wwwpmamarpa.com.
