Two of the top reasons airport professionals join AAAE are for the outstanding professional development and networking opportunities. However, we recognize that participation in events such as the Loretta Scott, A.A.E. Accreditation/Certification Academy can be a cost-prohibitive investment for airport or personal budgets. AAAE created the Loretta Scott, A.A.E. Accreditation/Certification Academy Scholarship Program to provide airport professionals, who may not otherwise be able to attend, with the opportunity to pursue their professional development goals.
