Specifically, First Aviation’s support will give attendees an evening reception, during which they could meet the Honorable Michael Lawson, the United States’ Ambassador to ICAO. As a special guest at the SLC’s kickoff event on Wednesday, Oct. 5, Ambassador Lawson will share his thoughts on the American role in the global aviation community.

Share your expertise and benefit from your colleagues’ insight during discussions of international regulatory cooperation, technical workforce development and global political risk.
When the U.S. Senate confirmed Ambassador Lawson in 2014, ARSA profiled him for the hotline newsletter. As you plan your trip to Montreal, take a look back at that edition and learn a little about the ambassador: Click here.
